Girls Soccer Sequim 5, Bremerton 1

BREMERTON — Senior midfielder Jenny Gomez collected a hat trick and dished out an assist as the Wolves shook off a slow start on the road.

“We weren’t connecting passes and were a little disjointed to start,” coach Ken Garling said. “It was cold and rainy, maybe that had something to do with it, but we weren’t connecting on our passes in the first 20 minutes like we normally do.

Sequim striker Taryn Johnson found Gomez for the game’s first goal in the 23rd minute.

“Taryn Johnson sent a nice through ball to Jenny and she buried it in the back of the net,” Garling said.

Johnson found Gomez again about 10 minutes later.

“In the 32nd minute Taryn dribbled the ball through to the corner, turned their outside left back and got a cross in to the 6-yard box and Jenny was right there to tap it in the back of the net. Such a great pass and goal.”

Gomez returned the favor on Johnson’s 66th minute goal for a 3-0 Wolves’ lead.

Johnson notched her second score in the 72nd minute.

Gomez notched her third goal in the 75th minute.

“Our outside right back Harper Moore made a great run up the outside and she found Jenny with a cross and Jenny buried it into the corner,” Garling said. “We were happy to see Jenny get her hat trick and Harper to show great vision and execution.

Bremerton scored a goal in the final minute to avoid the shutout.

Crosspoint 5, East Jefferson 0

BREMERTON — The Rivals fell to the Class 2B Warriors, an undefeated squad which previously beat Class 2A Bremerton.

“We were short-handed,” coach Rob Cantley said. “Iris [Mattern] is away checking out her college program at Eastern [Washington] and there was a homecoming assembly and we had to wait for some girls to get to the game.

“We got caught on a few counterattacks to give up goals,” Cantley said. “We just tried to work on our fundamentals.”

East Jefferson (1-3-1, 1-4-1) hosts Life Christian today at noon.

Danika Asgeirsson grabbed second and Olivia Mesen third.”
