PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Sequim girls golfers take inside lane to league title

SEQUIM — The Sequim’s girls golf team preserved its unbeaten match record and took the upper hand in the race toward an Olympic League championship by besting Olympic 173-204 at Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course on Tuesday.

Sarah Shea earned medalist honors with an even-par round of 36 on the Dungeness’ front nine.

“Yana Hoesel (46), Samantha Smith (42), Maddie Uranga (49) and Jessica German (62) all had career low nine-hole scores.

Port Angeles 7, Coupeville 2

PORT ANGELES — The Roughriders controlled the game from the start but allowed an early goal in the 16th minute before rallying for a nonleague rout of the Wolves on Tuesday at Civic Field.

“[We] were able to perservere and get the equalizing goal 11 minutes later when Andrew Methner took a chipped pass from Ben Schneider and slipped it past the Coupeville goaltender,” Port Angeles coach Chris Saari said.

“From there the floodgates opened and [we] scored another four goals in the last 10 minutes of the first half.

“Ben Schneider, Kenny Soule and Andrew St. George each notched two goals and one assist for Port Angeles.”

The Riders added a couple second half goals before Coupeville finished the scoring in the 75th minute.

The Port Angeles JV team shutout Chimacum 7-0 in the nightcap Tuesday at Civic Field.

Port Angeles (4-2-0, 7-2-1) host league-leading Kingston at Civic Field on Friday.

The Riders sit in fourth place in the Olympic League standings with 13 points, four shy of the Buccaneers.

Sequim 9, Olympic 0

SEQUIM — The Wolves opened the second half of Olympic League 2A Division play by routing the Trojans.

“We played pretty well,” Sequim coach Dave Brasher said of Tuesday’s game. “Pretty much the whole game was in their half [of the field]. We held them shotless. We controlled the defense pretty handily between Mathew Craig, Chris Morgan, Adrian Funston and Sean Weber.”

Ryan Tolberd and Mike McAleer each scored two goals to pace the Sequim attack.

Liam Harris added a goal and an assist, Funston came up from defense to add a goal, freshman Eli Gish scored, Spanish exchange student Hayuk Minano found the net and Olympic committed an owl goal on the night.

“Evan James was our man of the match,” Brasher said. “He had a couple of assists and played well in defense.”

Brasher was pleased with how his team played against the cellar-dwelling Trojans.

“It would have been easy to overlook this game,” Brasher said. “We did a little last year we beat them handily the first game and then it was a close 2-1 game until the final 10 minutes. So it was much better to see the boys stay focused and not let down.”

Sequim (5-2-0, 6-2-2) will visit Klahowya (4-0-0, 6-2-1) in a nonleague match Friday.

“We are excited to play them,” Brasher said. “They are a good team and some of our players play with some of their team in select soccer.”

Quilcene 39, Pope John Paul II 7

LACEY — Quilcene bats erupted in an astounding display of offensive firepower as the Rangers beat Pope John Paul II 39-7.

Coach Mark Thompson said the Rangers banged out 32 hits, and he stressed these were legitimate, no-doubt hits. He also said the Rangers went to great lengths to keep the score down, not stealing bases and subbing out regulars.

In addition to the 32 hits, a trio of Quilcene pitchers also combined to throw a no-hitter. PJP II managed to score seven runs on a number of Quilcene walks and a couple of errors.

Leading the way at the plate were Madison Coffey, who went 4 for 5 with two doubles and three RBIs, Erin Macedo went 4 for 4 with two doubles and four RBIs, Katie Love 3 for 5 with two triples and 2 RBIs, Marissa Kieffer 3 for 6 with a triple and four RBIs and McKenzie Kieffer 3 for 5 with a double and an RBI.

Abby Weller started the game and didn’t give up any hits or runs in a couple of innings to pick up the win, going 4-2 on the year. Brittney Beukes and Kayla Ward also pitched and gave up no hits.

Thompson didn’t know if the 39 runs was a school record, but said it was the most the Rangers have scored in the six years he’s been the coach, bettering the old number of 33 runs. The Rangers, who finished second in the 1B state tournament last year, have also scored 15 and 17 runs in two earlier wins this year.

Quilcene (1-0, 4-2) played the Sequim JV Wednesday, then will next play at 4 p.m. Monday at home against La Conner (1-1, 1-3).
