BREMERTON — The Wolves fell on the road in a nonleague game against the Olympic League 1A Division Eagles.
Sequim coach Dave Brasher said his team weathered a rough opening 10 minutes and played well, even outshooting Klahowya 10-7.
“Klahowya tied North Kitsap and lost by one goal to Kingston, he said.
“They are as good as anybody in our league, even though they are 1A. they have a good shot to go pretty far in the 1A ranks [at state].”
The Eagles scored twice in the first 1o minutes before Sequim settled down.
“From 10 minutes on to about 35 minutes we were in control and Ryan Tolberd had a couple good chances,” Brasher said.
Liam Harris is still working himself back to form after an early-season injury.
“Liam is getting close to getting back to full strength,” Brasher said. “I played him about 3/4s of last night’s game. His shooting and touch are getting there.”
Klahowya scored its last goal in the 36th minute
“Second half, we carried the play and didn’t allow a shot but we couldn’t get anything in the net,” Brasher said.
He named Evan James the team’s man of the match for his play in midfield.
Sequim (4-3, 5-3-2) hosts North Mason tonight.
