An undermanned East Jefferson team managed to keep an unbeaten Sequim team to just three goals as the Wolves won 3-0 in Sequim on April 8.
Sequim coach Ken Garling praised East Jefferson’s defense, which held Sequim to just three goals after the Wolves scored 11 against them earlier this season.
“They played really well; they did a good job,” Garling said.
“We’re focusing on tight defense,” East Jefferson coach Robert Cantley said. “(Sequim) is definitely a strong team. They have good chemistry from Storm King.”
Sequim was up 1-0 in the first half, but Cantley thought East Jefferson was flat. He said East Jefferson turned up its intensity in the second half and played more aggressively, but the Wolves were simply too much.
Tyler Lawson had a first-half goal for Sequim, assisted by Rafael Flores, who set him up with a crossing pass.
Gish scored in the second half on a penalty kick and Christian Mingoy scored in the 76th minute, with another assist on a cross by Flores.
Trenton Rocha and Jack Van De Wege get the credit for the shutout in goal.
Sequim, which improved its record to 6-0, hosts class 1A Klahowya (3-2) on April 15.
