FORKS — The Forks girls soccer team lost its league opener to Ocosta 3-1.

Forks’ goal was scored by sophomore captain Miley Blanton.

“I am really proud of my entire team. This was our first league game and we have some work to do but they played hard and are starting to trust each other more. I can’t wait to see how the rest of the season goes,” said coach Tracy Gillette.

Sequim 4, Bremerton 3

SEQUIM — The Sequim tennis team swept the singles matches and got an important marathon doubles win from Hunter Tennell and Lincoln Bear to beat Bremerton 4-3.

Garrett Little, Espn Judd and William Hughes all won their matches in straight sets.

Sequim only had three doubles’ team, so had to forfeit one match. Aason Judd/Isaac McKeen and Jack Crecilius/Zach Post lost their doubles matches in straight sets.

So it came down to Tennell and Bear. They lost their first set 6-3 and came back to win a second set 7-5, sending the match to a tiebreaker, which Tennell and Bear won 12-10.

Coach Mark Textor named Tennell the player of the match for the Wolves.
