Sequim 3, East Jefferson 0

SEQUIM — An undermanned East Jefferson team managed to keep an unbeaten Sequim team to just three goals as the Wolves won 3-0.

“We’re focusing on tight defense,” said East Jefferson coach Robert Cantley. “[Sequim] is definitely a strong team. They have good chemistry from Storm King.”

Sequim coach Ken Garling praised East Jefferson’s defense, which held Sequim to just three goals after the Wolves scored 11 against them earlier this season.

“They played really well,” said Sequim coach Dan Garling. “They did a good job.”

Sequim was up 1-0 in the first half, but Cantley thought East Jefferson was flat. He said East Jefferson turned up its intensity in the second half and played more aggressively, but the Wolves were simply too much.

Tyler Lawson had a first-half goal for Sequim, assisted by Rafael Flores, who set him up with a crossing pass.

Gish scored in the second half on a penalty kick and Christian Mingoy scored in the 76th minute, with another assist on a cross by Flores.

Trenton Rocha and Jack Vandewege get the credit for the shutout in goal.

Cantley said Ashton Meyer-Bibbins played well for East Jefferson at left back and goalkeeper Have McMillan also played well.

“We was pretty busy. They had a lot of shots,” Cantley said. It was a marked improvement against the Wolves.

While East Jefferson is still looking for a win, it was the third match this year in which the team gave up three goals or less.

Sequim, which improved its record to 6-0, next plays Thursday, hosting Klahowya (3-2). East Jefferson (0-5) hosts Olympic (0-4) at 4:45 p.m. Tuesday.

Kingston 3, Port Angeles 0

KINGSTON — Three quick first-half goals from Kingston were the difference in a 3-0 win by the Buccaneers over Port Angeles.

All three goals in Thursday’s came from the Bucs’ Kaden Schaefer.

“Kingston outpassed, outskilled, and used their speed well to get in behind the Rider defense. Schaefer finished well when he got his opportunities,” said Riders’ coach Chris Saari. “The Riders attack was limited for the most part.”

Saari said the Roughriders were able to keep Kingston off the board in the second half and had at least one good chance at scoring.

“Toward the end of the first half, Port Angeles had a good opportunity on a corner kick but was unable to capitalize on a close range left footed shot by Nova Raupp,” Saari said.

Saari said Sean Rankin was solid at the back, winning a lot of balls and distributing well and that Dayton Williams was the biggest offensive threat for Port Angeles, taking on players one on one, but he was unable to break through the Bucs’ defense for very many quality opportunities. He named Rankin his defensive MVP for the game and Williams and Josiah Long as his transition MVPs.

“Josiah’s work rate is always above and beyond. He flashed skills and beat several players in the first half to create some opportunities for himself in and around the Kingston penalty box,” Saari said.

Port Angeles finished with six shots to Kingston’s 20. The Riders junior varsity won 2-0.

The Riders (3-3-0) play at 6:45 p.m. Thursday against East Jefferson (0-5) at Peninsula College. Port Angeles beat East Jefferson 2-0 earlier this season.
