Boys soccer: Wolves beat P.A., Kingston in OT

As of late, Thomas Winfield, Nic Baird and the rest of the Wolves boys soccer team are overtime masters.

As of late, Thomas Winfield, Nic Baird and the rest of the Wolves boys soccer team are overtime masters.

In their two games last week, both 1-0 wins, Winfield and Baird knocked in the goals with finesse for Sequim.

In second overtime on April 22 at home, Winfield redeemed himself after an offsides call in overtime that overturned a Wolves goal and victory. With about 30 seconds left, Lijah Sanford placed a pass perfectly for Winfield and the game-winning kick over Kingston.

It was Winfield’s second overtime winning goal this season.

Sequim coach Dave Brasher said Winfield continues to battle hard and that he asked if Winfield wanted to come out earlier and he said no. The Wolves outshot Kingston 13-8.

Baird was the hero on Thursday night with a header and the win over rival Port Angeles. Sloppy conditions kept the Roughriders and Wolves in check through most of the game until Ron Welches dribbled to the corner early in the second overtime toward Baird who headed the ball into the underside of the crossbar.

“Nic’s goal was really nice,” Brasher said. “It wasn’t flukey. It was a well-shaped goal from the start. I was talking to P.A. guys after the game and they said they couldn’t say anything about that not being a great game winner.”

Sequim had a lot of opportunities against the Roughriders outshooting them 19-6.

Brasher attributed a lot of his team’s success to his defense — goalie Austin Wagner, Bailey Collins and Hector Baylon.

“(Bailey and Hector) have really been shutting down forwards,” Brasher said. “And with (Lijah Sanford) back there, it’s an added big body that wins a lot of headers.”

Sequim also is looking for a higher seeding in the first Olympic League Tournament where five teams compete for four playoff spots.

Brasher said they are likely assured a spot in the playoffs but they want the No. 1 seed to play the winner of the four and five seed play-in game for a better shot at higher seeding throughout the playoffs.
