Almost got ‘em definitely applies last week to the Lady Wolves soccer squad to their opponents.

Sequim (0-6 in league, 3-7 overall) lost 4-3 in a shootout on Tuesday, Oct. 7, against the Bremerton Knights (1-5, 3-7) and 1-0 against Olympic Trojans (5-1, 7-2) on Oct. 9.

Head coach Victor Lancheros said his team played well despite the outcomes.

“They left all on the field,” he said. “I’m proud of how they did it … It was an all-team effort.”

Sequim was deadlocked at 2-2 at the end of regulation against the Knights before coming down to penalty kicks. New goalie Claire Henninger kicked in the Wolves’ only goal in the shootout. She blocked three shots but gave up two in the match. Maeve Harris and Adare McMinn scored the two earlier goals for Sequim with Chloie Sparks assisting McMinn.

Lancheros said the girls aren’t getting down despite the losses.

“We’re not going to give up,” he said. “If wins come our way, it’d be wonderful. We play for the love of game and always put a good effort forward.”

While hosting the Trojans, both teams pressed each others’ defenses hard until Olympic controlled the ball much of the second half before Ally Galeski scored with about 9 minutes to go.

Lancheros said they worked on defense most of last week and held them pretty well.

Sequim also has been fighting some injuries, he said, but the team is about 90 percent healthy now.

This week, Sequim played in Kingston (3-3, 5-5) on Tuesday, Oct. 14, and hosts Port Angeles (3-3, 5-4) on Thursday, Oct. 16.
