OLYMPIA, Wash. – Nate Boatright scored four goals and Sebastian Lyons and Jordan Zimmerman each scored twice to lead the Oly Town Artesians to a 10-5 win over the visiting Portland Blacktails in a preseason friendly Saturday night.

Boatright scored the first two goals of the game putting the Artesians up 2-0 after the first period. He added his third goal on a penalty kick with 40.3 seconds left in the second quarter to give Oly a 5-2 lead at the half.

Lyons’ second goal of the game less than a minute into the second half put the Artesians up 4-2 before the Blacktails clawed back and made it 6-4 after the third quarter. But goals by Andreas Malunat, Boatright, and Alec Zimmerman made it 9-4 and sealed the game for the Artesians.

Juan Gasca scored twice and Esteban Cruz and Frankie Lopez each added a goal for the Blacktails, a Tualatin based team that is exploring joining the Western Indoor Soccer League in the future.

The Artesians will turn their focus to the WISL regular season and will travel to Bremerton to face the Oly-Pen Force next Saturday at 7:30 PM.

We made a nice run to the final of the Washington Super Cup final in its first season but couldn’t quite get the job finished allowing two goals in the first five minutes in a 3-0 loss to Nido Aguila Club America Seattle. Still, it was a hard fought game and you can see that from these pictures taken by Sonja Purtteman last Friday night.

Thank you to our photographers Sonja Purtteman, Molly Walsh and Charis Wilson for all of their work this season!
