SEQUIM — The Sequim boys soccer team opened the 2013 season with a barn-burner against Olympic League powerhouse Kingston.
The Wolves stayed with the Buccaneers, who claimed second in league last year, for 80 minutes of regulation before falling 3-2 in an overtime shootout Saturday.
The two teams were tied 0-0 at halftime and 2-2 at the end of regulation.
“I’m pretty proud of how our kids played,” Sequim coach Dave Brasher said.
“We looked pretty good at times.”
Especially the way the Wolves came back after being behind 2-0 early in the second half, Brasher added.
After a first-half stalemate of no score, the Buccaneers scored two quick goals within the first 10 minutes of the second half.
Ross Burk scored in the 46th minute and Nick Boles followed with a penalty kick in the 50th minute.
But senior forward Mason Barrett scored two goals for Sequim, one at the 56th minute, the other at the 72nd minute, to get the Wolves back in the game.
The first one Barrett chased down and beat the Kingston goalkeeper to it before putting the ball in the net.
The second came on a header off an Omar Flores assist with just 8 minutes left in the game.
“I’m excited that we came back after the 2-0 deficit,” Brasher said.
The two teams went scoreless in the overtime period. Kingston scored on three penalty kicks while Sequim made two in the shootout.
Burk shot the third goal for the win while Colin Stone and Simon Campo scored the other two goals for the Buccaneers.
Flores and Brandon Payne made the shootout goals for the Wolves.
The match was even the whole way with the Buccaneers outshooting the Wolves just 14-10.
Freshman goalkeeper Austin Wagner had eight saves in the game. That included stopping a penalty kick in the shootout.
Sequim next plays at rival Port Angeles on Civic Field on Tuesday starting at 6:45 p.m.
Port Townsend 6,
Port Angeles 5, OT
PORT TOWNSEND — Junior midfielder Daniel Charlton sparked the Redskins past the Roughriders in the Andy Palmer Memorial game with four goals Saturday at Memorial Field.
Port Angeles sophomore Miki Andrus answered with a hat trick as all three goals came in the first half.
The two teams tied 3-all at halftime and 5-5 at the end of regulation.
The game ended in sudden-death overtime when Port Townsend’s Brady Arthur finished the match with a sliding score off a strong cross deep in the Roughrider box within the first minute of the extra period.
Who says soccer is a low scoring game?
A total of 25 goals were scored Saturday as Port Townsend’s varsity and JV teams hosted Port Angeles.
The Port Townsend JV beat the Riders 10-4.
Varsity action started with Port Angeles veteran goalkeeper Jack Doryland providing an incredible save to deny Arthur a spectacular opening minute’s goal off a crossing header.
This wild match-up was just getting started.
The Redskins dominated play throughout, yet thanks to the speed and skill of the Riders’ Abinet Hayden and Andrus, the Roughriders kept coming back.
Charlton scored all of Port Townsend’s first-half goals. He was assisted by Max Meier in the 12th minute and by Nick Silberman in the 25th minute.
Charlton had an unassisted goal in the 14th minute.
In the second half, Port Townsend continued to demonstrate superior midfield control and offensive pressure with a 49th minute Port Angeles own goal manufactured as the Riders were unable to clear off the ball served from a strong corner kick by Redskin senior co-captain Nick Silberman.
Despite strong defensive games by Redskins Jordan Ristick, John Reid and senior co-captain Michael Shively, Port Angeles surprised Port Townsend by scoring tying and then go-ahead goals in the 68th minute by Vincent Ioffrida, and again in the 71st minute by Tim Schneider.
Behind for the first time with less than 10 minutes to play, the Redskins came back with Charlton earning his fourth goal in the 73rd minute off of an assist by Arthur, tying the game in regulation.
Arthur ended the game in sudden-death overtime with his sliding goal.
Port Townsend next travels to Silverdale Stadium to face Klahowya on Tuesday.
The Redskins return to Memorial Field to play Bremerton on Friday night. This game was originally scheduled Thursday.
