FORKS — Senior Seth Johnson notched his third hat trick of his first-ever soccer season and the Spartans topped the Ilwaco Fishermen 8-1 at home Tuesday.
“Our passing, our spacing,” Forks coach Joe Morton said of what he liked about his team’s play. “I kind of put that to them, knowing [Ilwaco is struggling], to work on stuff like a practice.”
Luis Perez had a pair of goals for the Spartans. Hugo Sandoval and Tony Flores scored and Morton was impressed with the goal scored by Oscar Gonzales.
“Oscar Gonzales with another header goal off of a corner kick,” Morton said. “That’s two games in a row he’s scored on a header off of a corner.”
Morton said his team will need to work on the shape of its defense.
“We are still a little too spread out,” Morton said. “And finishing. We had 35 shots on goal, we scored eight, but we could have had more. So you know what we will be working on at practice.”
Gabriel Terrones played well in goal, Morton said. The Fishermen’s lone score came on a first-half penalty kick.
Forks (4-1-0, 5-2-0) visits Elma (3-2-0, 4-4-1) on Friday.
Boys Soccer: Klahowya 1, Port Townsend 0
SILVERDALE — The Redhawks allowed a 10th-minute goal off a direct free kick and fell to the perrenial state-playoff contending Eagles on the road.
“It was one of those games where we started really slowly, let them take the initiative and they scored pretty early,” Port Townsend coach Robert Cantley said.
“We were kind of on the back foot for the first half of the first half.
“We had been playing a back three defensively, switched to a back four and that improved stability and we got hold of the ball more.”
Cantley said his team created some chances in the second half, including a shot off the Klahowya goal post, but couldn’t get the tying score.
“The game could have gone either way,” Cantley said. “We had 10 shots to their 12 and quite a bit of their total was off of free kicks. Nico Winegar made seven saves in goal for us.”
Port Townsend (1-2-0, 2-3-1) can still make the playoffs as the Olympic League 1A Division’s second-place team.
“This game provides the impetus for the rest of the season to work more on our gameplan,” Cantley said. “We will go into the district tournament having to play the loser-out game, so there’s a little more to do but we feel pretty confident we can go through.”
The Redhawks host Chimacum on Friday.
Boys Golf: Sequim 168, Olympic 187
BREMERTON — The Wolves marked an anniversary by increasing their Olympic League unbeaten streak with a win over the Trojans at Rolling Hills Golf Course on Tuesday.
“This was a monumental day for Sequim boys golf as it marks the four-year anniversary since our last [Olympic League] loss was on April 9, 2015, giving [us] a record of 38-0 since then,” Wolves coach Bill Shea said.
Blake Wiker earned match medalist honors with a 3-over-par 38 for Sequim. Paul Jacobsen was third for the Wolves with a 41.
“Freshmen Ben Sweet and Dom Riccobene also turned in respectable scores of 44 and 45,” Shea said.

Next match is on Tuesday the 15th at home were they have three challengers with North Mason, Kingston and Chimacum.
Boys Golf: Chimacum 204, North Mason 210
ALLYN — The Cowboys picked up a match win on a narrow Lakeland Village course with plenty of hazards.
Logan Storm earned medalist honors with a round of 42 for Chimacum.
“Logan has a great swing and that was a tight course,” Cowboys coach Rachel Whittington said. “There was [out of bounds] on most of the leftside and if not OB there was water on the right. He can bomb his drives 300 yards, but Logan was very reserved, he played for the position and not for the yardage. He strategized well.”
Sean Storey had a 52 and Brayden Yingling, Gabe Van Kamp and Cayden Sevilla all shot 55 for the Cowboys.
Chimacum (3-2) visits Sequim on Monday.
Softball: Forks 12, Ocosta 4
WESTPORT — The Spartans picked up a solid road win over a top-tier Class 2B school on the road Tuesday.
“It was a good game for us because Ocosta is typically the powerhouse of the Pacific 2B Conference and they got fifth in 2B last year,” Forks coach Dennis Dean said.
Dean said the Spartans were dialed in at the plate.
“Rian Peters stayed hot, she went 3 for4 with a walk, a double and three RBIs,” Dean said.
“Jayden Olson went 3 for 4 with a triple, a walk and three RBIs and Natalie Lausche was 3 for 4 with a double.”
Peters, an all-league catcher, injured her hand and played in the outfield.
“Our little freshman, Aspen Rondeau caught the game and she did a good job,” Dean said.
“Britney Dean started the game and gave up two walks, two hits and they scored two runs with five strikeouts. Chloe Leverington pitched the final three innings and she struck out four and gave up one hit and allowed two earned runs.”
Forks (1-1, 6-3) is scheduled to host Montesano today.
