Auburn Mountainview goalkeeper Deanna Colburn is in a bit of a groove these days.

Behind the usual offense of Sydney Coleman and Hannah Morse and yet another solid defensive performance from Colburn, Auburn Mountainview turned back Lakes last Thursday, 2-0, in a South Puget Sound League 3A game.

The shutout Colburn’s third straight and fourth in the Lions’ last five games.

Coleman scored unassisted in the 36th minute to give Colburn and the Lions all the offense they would need. For good measure, Hannah Morse found the net in the 57th minute on an assist from Coleman.

The Lions have won four of their last five games.

• ALSO: The South Puget Sound League North Division was fit to be tied last Thursday. Literally. Of the four games that were on the schedule, three finished in ties. Auburn and Tahoma worked a scoreless match as did Kentlake and Federal Way.

Unlike many of their SPSL North counterparts, Auburn Riverside and Kentridge each found the net … once each. Taylor Hayes gave Kentridge an early lead with a goal, only to watch AR’s Taylor Abrass tie things in the 66th minute with a goal of her own.

Kentwood notched the league’s only win of the afternoon, doing away with Jefferson 1-0. Jolene Crook-Meyers netted the Conquerors’ lone goal in the 35th minute. Courtney Johnson and Megan Walburn combined in goal for the shutout, their 10th straight.
