Girls soccer: Wolves’ win streak at three

So far the Wolves’ girls soccer squad are on track with last year’s record-setting pace.

Last week, Sequim (2-1 in the Olympic League, 4-2 overall) won two league games against North Mason at home on Sept. 19 and in North Kitsap on Sept. 21.

Their record mirrors last school year when the Wolves were 4-2 overall as well. They went on to win six-in-a-row and eventually win 11 games on the season, the most in the program’s history.

Sequim coach Derek Vander Velde said the Wolves are enjoying themselves but aren’t distracted by the recent success.

“They are focusing on one opponent at a time and feeling great about the way they are playing,” he said.

Senior Adare McMinn helped the Wolves earn their two most recent wins.

Against the Bulldogs, Vander Velde said Sequim controlled the game with 12 shots on goal including McMinn’s goal at the 48th minute on an assist from freshman Natayla James.

In North Kitsap, McMinn connected again in the 51st minute on an assist from Daisy Ryan.

Vander Velde said the Wolves “frustrated the Vikings” throughout the game and they kept possession well and found enough space to keep “N.K. on their heels.”

Goalkeeper Claire Henninger recorded shutouts in both games with 12 saves against the Vikings.

Vander Velde said she was injured in the opening games against Archbishop Murphy and her teammates have filled in recently but she’s healthy now.

This week, the Wolves were scheduled to host Port Angeles (2-1, 3-3) on Tuesday, Sept. 26, and Kingston (0-3, 0-5) on Thursday, Sept. 28.
