Girls soccer: Wolves rout Bulldogs on the road

After a long layoff due to other teams having COVID-19 issues, the Sequim girls soccer team took out their pent-up energy on North Mason, beating the Bulldogs 5-1 on Sept. 30 behind the deadly combo of Taryn Johnson and Hannah Wagner.

Wagner scored a hat trick, getting two goals on corner kicks from Johnson, who picked up a pair of assists.

The Wolves had two games canceled last week because of other teams’ COVID-19 issues and hadn’t played since Sept. 21.

“The girls were motivated,” SHS coach Ken Garling said. “They were happy to finally have a match.”

Wagner scored her first goal in the third minute on a header on a corner kick from Johnson. She got her second goal in the 58th minute, also on a Johnson corner.

“Those two are quite the combination,” Garling said. “Hannah has a way to find the open space on corner kicks.”

Wagner scored her third goal in the 26th minute on a solo effort. Jennyfer Gomez also had an unassisted goal in the 13th minute on a long-range drive from beyond the box.

Gomez later assisted on a Johnson goal in the 60th minute.

The Wolves nearly finished with a shutout, but North Mason was able to score in the 75th minute. Despite giving up the lone goal late, Garling said goalkeeper Addie Smith “had a really good game.”

Garling also said freshman defensive midfielder Ivy Barrett “had a fantastic game” controlling the ball in the midfield.

Sequim (4-2) was scheduled to play at Port Angeles on Oct. 5 — results were not available at press time.

Coming up

The Wolves host Olympic on Oct. 7; Sequim routed the Trojans 4-1 in Silverdale on Sept. 14.

Sequim then plays at North Kitsap on Oct. 12 and at Bainbridge on Oct. 14.
