Sehome Mariners 5,

Mount Vernon Bulldogs 1

BELLINGHAM — Jenna Mills scored a late goal for the Bulldogs, but Sehome's quick start proved too much for Mount Vernon to overcome.

The Mariners scored four first-half goals which Mount Vernon coach Lauren Jansen said came from "simple mistakes from us and well-executed plays from them."

Jansen said she was pleased with the improved effort in the second half as the Bulldogs held a seasoned Mariners team to one goal.

Jansen said sophomore Chloe Mishler turned in the best game Jansen has seen her play.

The Bulldogs are 0-2.
