PREP ROUNDUP: PA soccer romps; Wagner scores hat trick for Sequim

KINGSTON — Port Angeles got back on the winning track after a two-game losing kid, blasting Kingston 7-0 in an Olympic League girls soccer contest.

The Roughriders held a 3-0 lead after just 12 minutes of play.

Bailee Larson scored in the fifth minute on a short corner kick that she dribbled towards goal and hit a shot just inside the post.

Anna Petty scored in the 11th minute from a 20-yard, left-footed shot that found the upper corner of the net.

Petty assisted the next goal a minute later when she passed to Izzy Felton, who struck a strong shot near post from 18 yards.

Catie Brown her first goal of the season in the 26th minute and Larson followed with her second of the night in the 30th minute. Larson has a team leading four goals on the year.

Paige Mason provided all the scoring in the 2nd half. The first was a 30-yard laser and the second was just as strong as the first, but from 20 yards.

“We had most of the possession of the ball throughout the game and we were able to score really quality goals,” coach Scott Moseley said. “In addition, we were able to work on some parts of our game as we prepare for Tuesday’s game versus Sequim.”

Port Angeles (3-2) hosts Sequim (3-2) at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday at Peninsula College.

Sequim 5, North Mason 1

SEQUIM — After a long layoff due to other teams having COVID-19 issues, the Sequim girls soccer team took out their pent-up energy on North Mason, beating the Bulldogs 5-1 on Thursday behind the deadly combo of Taryn Johnson and Hannah Wagner.

Wagner scored a hat trick, getting two goals on corner kicks from Johnson, who picked up a pair of assists.

The Wolves had two games canceled last week because of other teams’ COVID-19 issues and hadn’t played since Sept. 21.

“The girls were motivated,” said coach Ken Garling. “They were happy to finally have a match.”

Wagner scored her first goal in the third minute on a header on a corner kick from Johnson. She got her second goal in the 58th minute, also on a Johnson corner.

“Those two are quite the combination,” Garling said. “Hannah has a way to find the open space on corner kicks.”

Wagner scored her third goal in the 26th minute on a solo effort. Jennyfer Gomez also had an unassisted goal in the 13th minute on a long-range drive from beyond the box.

Gomez later assisted on a Johnson goal in the 60th minute.

The Wolves nearly finished with a shutout, but North Mason was able to score in the 75th minute. Despite giving up the lone goal late, Garling said goalkeeper Addie Smith “had a really good game.”

Garling also said freshman defensive midfielder Ivy Barret “had a fantastic game” controlling the ball in the midfield.
