The North Olympic Peninsula Mountaineers boys (2-7) almost had another win this season after a nail biter earlier in the week.
The Burlington-Edison Flyers’ Dalan Blade scored in the final seconds of the third quarter for the go-ahead goal in the 8-7 win over the Mountaineers on May 3 in Agnew Field.
The Mountaineers outshot the Flyers 9-7 in the fourth quarter but couldn’t build on Eric Prosser’s goal. Dusty West led P.A. with three goals, while Prosser had two and Connor Leslie had three assists and 19 ground balls for the Mountaineers.
The narrow loss comes after a last-second win (11-10) by the Mountaineers on May 1 in Agnew. Mountaineers’ Michael Walton scored a goal a minute into overtime to give the Port Angeles-Sequim team its first home win in three years.
“This was an absolutely huge win for us,” Mountaineers coach Dave Farrington said.
