It was cold, the grass on the field was still brown and the fans were out in force to watch the defending state champions open their season against the Okanogan Bulldogs.

Okanogan and Chelan went back and forth for the first 32 minutes until junior Fausto Vieyra got on the goal side of Okanogan defenders and kicked the ball past Okanoganís goalie to score Chelanís first goal of the game.

Okanogan had several opportunites, but was unable to get the ball past senior goal keeper Miguel Sanchez.

The first half ended with the score at 1-0.

In the second half, senior Edbin Vargas sealed the win with Chelanís second goal of the game at the 50 minute mark.

Sanchez was awarded the shutout in goal.

Chelan travels to Seattle on Saturday, March 22, to take on Seattle Academy in Shoreline. Game time is at 7 p.m..
