FORKS — Forks knotted the score after halftime but couldn’t find any more offense as Montesano wrestled away a 3-1 Evergreen League boys soccer victory Wednesday at Spartan Stadium.

The Spartans (0-3) allowed the Bulldogs to score almost right off the bus, as Montesano’s Felix Romero buried a shot in net, assisted by Levi Clements, in the fourth minute.

Forks settled down and eventually responded with a goal in the 50th minute when Mateo Lucas scored off a throw-in by Mario Flores.

The Bulldogs would break the tie when Romero scored his second of the game, assisted by sophomore midfielder Cris Tobar, in the 64th minute.

Four minutes later, Romero returned the favor, sending a feed to Tobar for a goal in the 68th minute.

Forks managed just the one shot on goal, while Montesano totaled 11 shots, six on target.
