SEQUIM — Sequim beat previously undefeated North Kitsap 3-1 in Olympic League soccer action Saturday at Sequim High School.

“It’s huge,” Wolves coach Dave Brasher said. “I think it has been four years since our team beat them.”

The win turns the league title chase into an apparent three-team race between the Sequim (5-2), North Kitsap (7-1) and Kingston (6-1).

The Wolves a shot at the Buccaneers at home Tuesday. Kingston beat Sequim 2-1 last month in the first match of the season.

The Wolves had a pair of quick goals midway through the first half of Saturday’s game to take a 2-0 lead into intermission.

Thomas Winfield hit the crossbar in the 27th minute but teammate Cameron Chase was there to knock it in the net.

Two minutes later, Chase had the ball in the corner and set up Winfield for a goal.

“Cameron and Thomas worked their butts off up front,” Brasher said.

North Kitsap came of strong in the second half, including a breakaway around the 50-minute mark, but Sequim goalkeeper Austin Wagner made to saves to halt the attack.

In the 74th minute, Brian Duran scored for the Vikings on a penalty kick after a slide tackle by Sequim’s Lijah Sanford to cut the Wolves’ lead to 2-1.

Sequim tacked on another goal in stoppage time when Nic Baird scored after North Kitsap’s goalkeeper fell down.

Brasher credited Baird and fellow midfielder Eli Berg for keeping Raul DeLuna, the Vikings’ top scorer, in check.

Sequim 7, Olympic 3

SILVERDALE — A three-goal flurry in the final three minutes of the first half broke open a 1-1 tie and pushed the Wolves to the win Thursday.

“Those three goals right before half finished them off,” Sequim coach Dave Brasher said.

Thomas Winfield scored a hat trick and added an assist for the Wolves, and teammate Eli Berg was charitable, doling out four assists and scoring a goal of his own.

Brandon Payne also had a goal and an assist for Sequim (5-2).

Port Angeles 1, Klahowya 0

PORT ANGELES — The Roughriders outlasted the Eagles, earning the win on penalty kicks after regulation time ended in a scoreless tie.

Thursday’s win was the first shutout of the season for Port Angeles.

“Goalkeeper Harrison Pearce came up huge in the shootout, saving three of the Klahowya attempts to boost the Riders to the win,” Port Angeles coach Chris Saari said.

“[Our] penalty kick-takers, Jackson May, Tim Schneider and Vincent Ioffrida all scored their penalty kicks with authority.”

Saari praised Pearce as his defensive player of the match, Schneider as his offensive pick and Wei-Yan Fu and Scott Methner for their work in transition.

“The game was a hard-fought, end-to-end match in which both teams created chances during regulation but neither could manage to score,” Saari said.
