As the season stretches into key league play and positioning for districts, the Wolves (4-3 in the Olympic League, 6-4 overall) moved into fourth place last week after splitting two games.
Sequim won on the road 1-0 over Bremerton on Oct. 3 but lost to league-leading Olympic 2-0 at home on Oct. 5.
Forward Jessica Dietzman put the Wolves ahead right before halftime (39 minutes) with a goal against the Knights.
For the game, the Wolves had 15 shots on goal and Goalkeeper Claire Henninger had five saves.
At home, neither Sequim or Olympic could get on the board in the first half with the Wolves not recording a shot on goal. Unfortunately for the Wolves, Olympic scored its first goal on a free kick 66 minutes in and again with one minute to go (79 minutes) on a corner kick.
Despite two goals, Henninger had seven saves and Vander Velde said Sequim’s defense continues to grow with a rotating core of Yana Hoesel, Gabby Happe, Kristina Mingoy, Mary McAleer, and Abby Schroeder.
As of Tuesday, Oct. 10, the Wolves are half-a-game behind Port Angeles (4-2, 6-4) but one game ahead of North Mason (3-4, 4-5-1). The top four teams advance to districts and the top five teams there advance to the 2A state tournament.
Sequim was slated to play at Coupeville on Oct. 10. The Wolves are at North Mason Oct. 12 before hosting North Kitsap on Oct. 19.
Sequim gets a rematch with rival Port Angeles in PA on Oct. 19. The Roughriders edged the Wolves 1-0 on Sept. 26.
