HS Daily - 3.24.17: Talent gaps painfully clear in GNL, NEA

On the third gameday for the Great Northern League and the second for the Northeast A League, it became rather obvious who the contenders were going to be for the season as the closest game of five was a 3-1 victory by Cheney over West Valley.

In the GNL, Cheney is 3-0 and East Valley is 2-0. Defending champion Pullman is a surprising 0-2 (idle Thursday), but will most likely rebound as its two games came against the previously mentioned unbeatens. In the NEA, it was another day of blowouts as Lakeside, Medical Lake and Colville outscored the opposition 20-1.

Cheney held the lead in its road contest on a sixth minute Kelby Holland strike, but Noah Prophet pushed the match out of reach early in the second half on goals in the 48th and 51st. Dalton Mauzay's shutout attempt was spoiled in the 72nd by Chase Howat.

Devonte Gorman torched Clarkston with two goals and an assist in the 3-0 East Valley win. He scored in the eighth and set up Zach Bowsky two minutes later. He collected the brace in the 46th and Kohl Tomcho held on for the shutout.

Alberto Cisneros tallied two goals and two assists while Eduardo Zarate struck for the other two goals in a 4-0 Colville win against Newport. Nicholas Rosenbeck led Medical Lake's rout of Deer Park, notching five goals and an assist in the 7-0 win. Also scoring five was Lucas Ousley as Lakeside drubbed Riverside 9-1.
