One league win down, three games to go on the season.

Senior Hannah Gauthun kicked in an overtime goal for the 1-0 win on Oct. 14 in Kingston to give the Wolves (1-8 in league, 4-9 overall) their first league win of the year.

Sequim co-head coach Julie Lancheros said the girls monopolized the ball in overtime after the game ended regulation 0-0.

“They kept on shooting and missing but the ball was being bounced around and it was one of those scenarios where Hannah was there and put it in,” she said.

The win came after back-to-back losses the previous week. Following the win over the Buccaneers, Sequim hosted its senior night on Oct. 16 against Port Angeles (5-4, 7-5) in a hard-fought 2-0 loss that came in the waning minutes. At halftime, the Roughriders and Wolves didn’t score but in the second half Port Angeles capitalized on Sequim’s deflections.

With less than 20 minutes to play, the ball went into the goalie’s box, rebounded off a Wolves player and in crediting the goal to Maddie Boe. The second goal came with less than five minutes to go as Roughrider Emily Boyd headed in a shot off a Sequim’s deflection, too.

Lancheros called the goals tough luck.

“All season they’ve been battling sickness and injuries and with it senior night it seemed the girls had some adrenaline but a lot of them were playing sloppy that night,” Lancheros said.

“Port Angeles was a mentally hard game especially after the second goal.”

The Wolves had a chance to overcome their loss against North Mason (4-4, 6-5-1) on Saturday, Oct. 18.

They kept it close behind two goals from Shelby Lott and Sophie Radford but the Bulldogs won 3-2.

Sequim played in North Kitsap (8-0, 9-1-1) on Tuesday and travels to Bremerton (2-7 4-9) on Oct. 27, and Olympic (7-1. 9-2-1) on Oct. 28 to finish the season.

Lancheros said the girls’ goals for the remainder of the season are to play well as a team, give their all and have fun.

“It’s all we can ask of them at this point,” she said.
