SPORTS: Port Townsend beats Kingston in shootout; other prep reports

Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — A save by goalkeeper Malia Henderson and five precise penalty kicks sparked Port Townsend to a shootout victory over Kingston in girls soccer action at Memorial Field.

The Redskins, 2-1 in the Olympic League and 4-5-0 overall, went ahead 2-0 in the second half only to watch the Buccaneers come back with two late goals, one with just two minutes left, to tie it up 2-all at the end of regulation.

Both teams went scoreless in overtime but Port Townsend took over in the shootout with Henderson earning the save on one of Kingston’s penalty kicks and all of the Redskins’ five kickers — Henderson, Jewel Johnson, Brenna Latchford, Alex Akins and Irina Lyons — scoring on their penalty kicks for a 5-4 shootout victory.

“This was about as exciting as it gets,” Port Townsend coach Colin Foden said.

“Once again Kingston had the majority of the possession but rarely troubled the PT goal.”

Kingston fell to 1-3 in league and 3-8-0 overall.



Strong start

The Redskins went ahead 1-0 in the fifth minute of the second half when they counter-attacked with a pinpoint through ball from Lyons and a finish by Johnson.

“That [play] was utterly breathtaking,” Foden said.

The two players reversed their roles in the game’s second goal, which came in the 61st minute on a corner kick.

Johnson played it to the near post, and Lyons was there to turn it in.

Kingston responded by scoring goals in the 63rd and 78th minutes to send it into overtime.

After a scoreless overtime period, the Redskins had the Buccaneers right where they wanted them.

“An outstanding save by Malia Henderson meant that we could win if we scored all five penalties,” Foden said.

“Malia took the first herself, and we scored every one we took with coolness and precision.

“Several players were quite sick [for the game], but everyone put in an incredible effort and well deserved the win.”

The shorthanded Port Townsend JV team continues to play games with borrowed players from the other team.

“Kingston was generous in their supply of players, and our JV players are clearly improving,” Foden said.

The Redskins next play Klahowya at Silverdale Stadium tonight in league action.

Port Angeles 4, Bremerton 1

BREMERTON — The Roughriders dominated the Knights in Olympic League action Tuesday night.

Port Angeles opened the scoring when a Bremerton foul led to Shayla Northern’s penalty kick, which she buried in the right corner of the net.

“We’ve been working hard on perfecting penalty kicks and Shayla has the best percentage,” Port Angeles coach Scott Moseley said.

“It was her first penalty kick ever and she placed it like a pro,” Moseley said.

Northern said: “I was honored to be asked to take on a potential turning point of the game, and it was exciting to make the first goal.”

Port Angeles went up 2-0 when Northern dribbled into the Bremerton defense, placed a perfect pass to Maddie Boe, who calmly finished her fourth goal of the season.

After Bremerton got one goal back in the second half, Kaitlin Boston went to work and scored the final two goals of the game.

She crushed a beautifully passed ball from Brittany McBride, and she had an unassisted goal.

The scores were her team-leading sixth and seventh goals of the season.

“It was cool to get our first win at Bremerton in awhile, and get my first goals there to help us win,” Boston said.

Boe and Boston were named co-offensive players of the game while Khaya Elliot was selected as the defensive player of the game.

Moseley named McBride and Northern the co-transition players of the game.

“We discovered a hunger in the second half and closed the deal on our win,” McBride said.

The Roughriders moved into a tie for second place in the Olympic League with a league record of 2-1, and improved to 4-5-1 overall.
