PORT ANGELES — Ten North Olympic Peninsula girls soccer players were honored with selection to the Olympic League’s All-League Teams in voting conducted by league coaches.
Port Angeles head coach Scott Moseley was tabbed as Coach of the Year after leading the Roughriders to a Class 2A Olympic League title and a state tournament berth.
First-team honorees for Port Angeles included junior midfielder Anna Petty, senior goalkeeper Saylah Commerton and senior forward Bailee Larson.
Petty notched eight goals and five assists offensively this season, but her play in defensive midfield may have been even more impressive for the Riders.
Commerton totaled the program’s second-most shutouts in a season (11) and had the second-lowest goals allowed-average in school history.
Larson scored a team-high 14 goals and had eight assists, both numbers improved from her sophomore and abbreviated junior seasons.
First-team picks for Sequim were senior midfielder Hannah Wagner, the team’s leader in assists, and sophomore striker Taryn Johnson, the Wolves’ leading goal scorer who had three hat tricks and a super hat trick this season.
Senior defender Teagan Clark earned second-team honors for her work marshaling the Riders’ defense. Clark also scored five goals and added three assists from the back.
Clark’s senior teammate Catie Brown also made the second team after recording eight assists, tied with Larson for the team high, and scoring four goals. Brown returned this fall from a torn ACL suffered this past spring.
Sophomore defender/midfielder/forward Izzy Felton was a second-team choice. Felton scored seven goals and had three assists while playing a variety of positions for Port Angeles.
Sequim sophomore defender Kaia Lestage was a second-team choice for the Wolves.
She was joined by freshman midfielder Ivy Barret on the second team for Sequim.
PORT TOWNSEND — East Jefferson is well-represented on the Nisqually League’s All-League Girls Soccer Team.
Sophomore forward Ava Shiflett and sophomore midfielder Iris Mattern were first-team choices in voting by league coaches.
A speedy blur up top, Shiflett led the Rivals in goals with 10 and assists with seven.
Mattern was described by coach Robert Cantley as the “heart of the team” for her efforts in midfield. Mattern scored three goals and dished out four assists this fall.
Junior Kaylen Pray was a second-team pick and senior Savannah Hoffman, who volunteered to play in goal for East Jefferson in her final season, also made the second team.
Hoffman tallied five shutouts in goal and scored three goals and an assist in midfield.
Pray had nine goals, many of the clutch variety, and four assists.
Defender Izzy McCracken was an honorable mention selection for the Rivals.
Klahowya freshman Amira Lyons and Bellevue Christian junior Marieke Wybenga split league MVP honors.
Charles Wright sophomore Sarah White earned the Goalkeeper of the Year honor.
