PREP ROUNDUP: Sequim VB second in league; PA soccer girls win again

SEQUIM — The Sequim volleyball team wrapped up its regular season as the No. 2 seed in the Olympic 2A League after beating North Mason 3-1 (25-12, 25-16, 22-25, 15-14) on Tuesday night.

The Wolves finished the regular season 9-5 in league, with four of those losses to league champion and perennial power North Kitsap (13-1) and to 3A Bainbridge (13-1), which played regular-season matches in the Olympic League this year but will move on to a 3A postseason tournament.

Sequim coach Jennie Webber-Heilman said the Wolves played well in the North Mason match except for the third game. “We missed five serves in that game,” she said. Overall, the Wolves served 88 percent for the match.

Setter Allie Gale served 15-for-17 with three aces, 15 assists and seven digs, while hitter Kendall Hastings served 12-for-13 with 15 kills, 13 assists, four stuff blocks, eight digs and two aces.

Jolene Vaara served 16-for-18 with 15 kills, seven digs and two blocks, and Malory Morey served 13-for-14. Kelsey Ferguson served 10-for-11 and Angel Wagner served 8-for-8. Jolene Kidd had two aces and two kills.

In the first game, Morey had a seven-point serving run, while Gale had a six-point run and Vaara a five-point run.

The Wolves will host their Olympic League tournament opener against No. 3 seed Kingston (7-7) at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. Sequim and Kingston split two matches this year. The winner will play either No. 1 seed North Kitsap or No. 4 seed Olympic on Thursday.

The West Central District III tournament begins Nov. 10.

Kingston 3, Port Angeles 2

PORT ANGELES — The Riders overcame a late lineup change to battle with the Buccaneers in a tight 3-2 (17-25, 20-25, 25-21, 25-19, 15-13) loss.

“We had a major adjustment to the lineup right before game time, but the girls were able to adapt, run their offense and execute the rotation,” coach Jennifer Reynolds said.

“The determination of this group of athletes is amazing. They rise up in the face of adversity and work together to overcome challenges, instead of tearing each other down.”

Reynolds said her squad’s blocking was stellar, passing was accurate and the team was able to run the offense against Kingston.

“Ava Hairell was on point at the service line,” Reynolds said. “She served 17-for-17 overall, had two kills and a block.

“Zoe Smithson was running the net with 10 kills, four blocks, 15 assists and 13 digs.

Kennedy Bruch had nine kills, 14 assists and 17 digs.

Sam Robbins served 13-for-14, had eight kills, a block and 11 digs.

Senior Emi Halberg posted five kills and 16 digs.

Libero Lily Halberg served 16-for-18 with three aces, and had a kill and 36 digs.

Angelina Sprague added three blocks.

Port Angeles (4-9) wrapped its regular season schedule at home against North Mason late Wednesday.

PORT ANGELES — The Roughriders posted their third straight six-goal victory, taking down the visiting Buccaneers to improve to 10-3 and within a game of Olympic League-leading North Kitsap.

Anna Petty scored twice, her second two-goal game in a row for Port Angeles. Petty’s goals were assisted by Bailee Larson and Izzy Felton.

Larson added to her team-high goal tally with her 11th score, assisted by Mia Gagnon.

Senior defender Teagan Clark buried a penalty kick attempt for her fourth goal of the season.

Two Riders scored for the first time this fall: Julia Baeder on an assist by Lily Sanders and Mackenzie Hammond with an assist by Jayde Gedelman.

Port Angeles piled up 24 shots and kept Kingston shotless on the evening as the Riders earned their seventh shutout in a row and ninth on the season.

The Riders have allowed the fewest goals in the Olympic League this year — eight.

Port Angeles hosts Bremerton tonight at Wally Sigmar Field with a share of first place on the line in the Olympic League Class 2A standings. North Kitsap beat Bainbridge on Tuesday 3-2 to finish 11-3 in league, grabbing a share of first place. The North Kitsap victory knocked Sequim (9-4) out of the running for first place, but the Wolves are still in the postseason.

Tiebreakers are unclear at this point, according to Port Angeles coach Scott Moseley.

The Riders and Vikings split their two contests and split with third-place Sequim.
