A corner about 16 minutes in led to the second goal for the Bulldogs. The initial ball went long to the back post, but the header on goal ricocheted inside the six and was knocked in back toward the near post by a player crashing in on the follow-through.
Just before the half-hour mark the Zags pushed the lead to three.
The Bulldogs looked certain to make it four with another early chance in the second half when a pair of Hoppers tackled a Bulldog at the outer corner of the area, sending the hosts to the spot. Antonio Gonzalez, however, denied the attempt with the rebound being set high over the goal on the second attempt.
Struggling to find a rhythm and connect with one another to build up, Yakima found themselves continually searching to find some quick success with balls up the flank or up the middle as the match wore on and legs ran out.

The match was Yakima's second of the preseason. After holding tryouts on the 15th, they visited the Portland Spartans of the National Premier Soccer League last Saturday. The schedule features at least one more contest as they host Allianza FC of Tri-Cities April 11.
