Girls soccer: Wolves fall 1-0 to Vikings, Spartans

North Kitsap avenged a 2-0 Sequim win on Sept. 16 with a 1-0 shutout of the Wolves in Poulsbo on Oct. 12.

The Wolves were stymied offensively in a rematch with the Vikings, who netted a goal at 17 minutes for the game’s lone score.

“They scored in like the 17th minute of the first half,” coach Ken Garling said.

“We had lots of chances but just couldn’t finish,” Sequim coach Ken Garling said. “NK played very well defensively.

“(In the) second half we were able to settle into our game and play more possessions style, but we couldn’t find the net.”

Garling said Hannah Wagner, Rileigh Van Dyken and Bailey Gennessie all stood out.

“Hannah Wagner did well controlling the central midfield, Rileigh Van Dyken played more of a defensive midfielder and stopped their attacks and Bailey Gennessie at center back had a good game.”

The Wolves dropped another close game later in the week, falling to undefeated Bainbridge 1-0 on Oct. 14.

Sequim was slated to host Bremerton on Oct. 19 — results of the league match-up were not available at press time.
