The Redskins put forth a good first-half effort, grabbing a 2-0 lead by the intermission.
The first goal was created by a beautiful through pass from Jewel Johnson that was finished by Lily Murock.
Johnson and Murock continued to threaten North Mason's back four, but it was long run with the ball by Anne Meek that set up Kassi Olin to slip the ball to Johnson for the second goal.
Port Townsend coach Colin Foden said fatigue and injury slowed the Redskins in the second half, while the Bulldogs scored three goals, including two late scores by Tegan Daviscourt, to claim the victory.
“In addition to the goal scorers, there was outstanding work by Anne Meek and Becca Stewart in defense, Kassi Olin was tireless up front and Emily Slough showed great potential,” Foden said of Tuesday's game.
“If spared injuries, this team will improve, but this was a very encouraging start.”
Port Townsend (0-1-0) plays at defending Olympic League co-champion Klahowya today.
Port Angeles 1
PORT ANGELES — The Roughriders dropped their first game of the season to the visiting Buccaneers.
Kingston, a state qualifier in 2012, picked up where it left off last season by opening the scoring 5 minutes into the contest.
Port Angeles evened the score at the 20-minute mark.
Some quality passing led to Emma Moseley earning the assist on a lofted ball over Kingston's defense, where Maddie Boe picked it and calmly scored the Riders' first goal of the season.
Kingston took the lead for good in the 52nd minute when likely MVP candidate Rebecca Tafte placed a 30-yard free kick just under the bar.
The Buccaneers put the game out of reach with a goal at the 61st minute.
Riders goalkeeper Hayley Baxley has 10 saves.
Despite of the loss, Port Angeles coach Scott Moseley was positive about the Riders' play on Tuesday night.
“We had some nice possession in the first half, which led to our goal and best chances,” he said.
“We also defended really well and shut down their top scorer during the run of play.”
Scott Moseley's Port Angeles players of the game were Boe (offense), transition (Emma Moseley), and Elyse Lovgren and Karina Bohman on defense.
