SEQUIM — Increasing darkness didn’t stop Bremerton from lighting up the scoreboard for a game-winning goal in the 77th minute against Sequim in Olympic League boys soccer.
Brandon Payne scored a pair of second-half goals for the Wolves to even the score at 2-2, but the Knights scored on a long throw-in from Mike Lawrence to Brian Haneline with three minutes left to give Bremerton the upset.
It was the second time in the game that the a Lawrence throw-in led to a Haneline goal, the first coming in the game’s 19th minute.
The Knights took a 1-0 lead in the 11th minute on a goal by Caleb Petroski.
Payne scored on a penalty kick in the 60th minute, and then converted an Lijah Sanford assist into the equalizing goal in the 72nd minute.
“I was proud of the kids for fighting back after being down 2-0,” Sequim coach Dave Brasher said.
“We need to shore up our defense a little bit going into, hopefully, the playoffs.”
The lights at Sequim High School field didn’t go on, so the game was finished as darkness crept in.
Brasher chose defender Royhon Agostine as the player of the match.
Agostine entered the game after halftime, and had a solid performance that included drawing the penalty kick that led to Payne’s first goal.
The Wolves (7-5, 23 points) next play at Port Townsend (6-5, 19 points) on Tuesday evening.
“That’s a big game,” Brasher said. “They are right behind us in the standings.”

SILVERDALE — The Trojans, one of the better teams in the Olympic League, held off the Roughriders on a stormy day.
The Trojans scored on a counterattack after a Rider turnover in midfield in the 23rd minute lead lead 1-0 at halftime.
The wind was blowing strong from the south at Silverdale Stadium, affecting both teams when they had to play into it.
The Riders stayed in the game, and backup goalie Harrison Pearce filled in well along with John Macias, who played the last 15 minutes in goal for the Riders, coach Chris Saari said.
Rider defensive center-mid Wei-yan Fu did a good job settling the ball and distributing in midfield, Saari added.
The Trojans pressured the Riders heavily in the second half with the wind at their backs while Port Angeles was unable to create very many good scoring chances throughout the match.
In the 52nd minute, Trent’n Pajimula received the ball near the top of the Rider penalty box and beat several Rider defenders to add an insurance goal for the Trojans.
Saari picked Pearce as the defensive player of the match, and Fu the transition player of the match.
Olympic won the JV game 3-1.
The Riders, 1-11-0, next will host North Kitsap on Tuesday at Civic Field.
