Girls soccer: Wolves’ Lott nets hat trick vs. Red Hawks

Better to end the week on a high note for the Lady Wolves soccer team.

Better to end the week on a high note for the Lady Wolves soccer team.

After two tough losses at home against North Mason and North Kitsap, Sequim traveled to Port Townsend on Oct. 4 to blank the Redhawks (0-7 overall) 4-0.

Shelby Lott led the charge with three goals and Gretchen Happe had one.

Sequim remains winless in the Olympic League after four games and 3-5 overall.

Sequim co-head coach Victor Lancheros said he was hopeful the girls would recover starting Monday after a string of injuries.

“There’s still a lot of games left,” he said. “It’s still a matter of getting everyone healthy. We’re coming to that. Hopefully after Monday we give it all we’ve got.”

Sisters Lisa and Sophia Radford joined the teams on Oct. 2 after injuries but Goalie Bianca Espinoza is out for the season with injuries, co-head coach Julie Lancheros said.

Claire Henninger started at goalie against North Mason in the 3-2 loss on Sept. 30. Her performance was a pleasant surprise, Victor Lancheros said.

“She’s a good field player but she’s doing whatever we ask her to do,” he said. “We’re happy to have her there.”

Against the Bulldogs (2-2 in league, 3-3 overall), Lola Delguzzi-Flores and Hannah Gauthan scored Sequim’s goals with assists from Happe and Delguzzi-Flores.

Lancheros said the girls played well, too, against Olympic League leaders North Kitsap Vikings (4-0, 5-1-1) in a 3-0 loss.

“They did a pretty good job,” he said. “They moved the ball around well but I felt like we’re playing two teams. They had a lot of subs and we only have two subs but our kids showed up.”

The coaches are optimistic in this week’s games hosting Bremerton (0-5, 1-6) on Oct. 7 and Olympic (4-0, 6-1-1) on Oct. 9.

“Not everyone is playing to their potential,” Lancheros said. “We still have hopes to get to districts.”
