Klahowya 4, Port Angeles 0
PORT ANGELES — The Roughriders dropped a league match to the visiting Eagles 4-0 on Thursday night.
Port Angeles played Klahowya evenly through much of the match, but the Eagles' top talent was able to break the Riders to earn the win.
“The first 25 minutes was really even. We had chances, they had chances,” said Port Angeles coach Scott Moseley.
“But then they were able to break down our defense with very skillful passing.”
College prospect Mackenzie Cook was able to net two first half goals to put pressure on the Riders that they were not able to match.
Port Angeles' best chance to score came in the second half when the Riders earned a penalty kick, but they were unable to convert the kick.
For the game, Klahowya had 12 shots while Port Angeles took eight.
Riders goalkeeper Haley Baxley had eight saves.
Moseley named Emma Moseley the transition player of the game and Maddie Boe the offensive players of the game.
Klahowya, currently third in the Olympic League, moves to 11-3 while Port Angeles drops to 4-9. The Riders trail Bremerton by two games for the final spot in the league tournament.
Port Angeles travels to North Mason (4-9) on Monday.
North Kitsap 5, Port Townsend 0
PORT TOWNSEND — After a first-half in which the Redskins played the undefeated and first-place Vikings tightly, only to trail 5-0, Port Townsend held North Kitsap scoreless after halftime.
“Certainly Nort Kitsap was the better team, but [we] had not played badly at all,” Port Townsend coach Colin Foden said.
“A four-minute spell saw three goals go in, but among all five of the goals only one appeared to be unavoidable.
“It is a credit to the team's courage and tenacity that they came out in the second half and tied the next 40 minutes 0-0.
“Just about everyone got a few minutes on the field, and each performed well.
“There are a few injuries and tiredness is still a factor — defending for so long can be exhausting.”
North Kitsap's goals came in the 14th, 20th, 22nd, 24th and 38th minutes.
“There were some quality moments from Lily Murock, excellent tracking from Rosemary D'Andera and a greatly improved physicality from Reilly Berkshire,” Foden said.
“A disappointing score line, but a fine second half from everyone.”
The Redskins (0-14) host Sequim (2-11) on Tuesday night at Memorial Field.
