In what appears to be a recurring theme for The Dalles girl’s soccer team, No. 16-ranked Pendleton hit the back of the net in the opening 90 seconds of play and took hold of a 3-2 triumph in a Columbia River Conference matchup in Pendleton. “Three out of the last four games we have allowed a goal in the first 90 seconds, so that makes it difficult,” said TD head coach Colby Tonn.

Bridget will be a county employee and her husband is a state employee.
