Lynden Christian 7, Port Townsend 1

LYNDEN — The Redskins saw their season come to an end in a flurry of Lyncs goals in a Class 1A loser-out Tri-District playoff game Tuesday.

One day after beating Charles Wright 2-1 to keep its state hopes alive, Port Townsend (6-11-1 overall) couldn’t match up with the Northwest Conference powers.

“Lynden was a very good team and we just had a hard time keeping up”, said Port Townsend coach Pat Kane. “We played very well throughout the season and we had some great games.”

Max Gunn picked up the lone goal for the Redskins in the loss.

Sequim qualifies one for state

BREMERTON — Ryan O’Mera shot a 75 to finish second at the Olympic League championships at Gold Mountain Golf Course on Monday.

The 3-over par round of 18 holes was good enough to qualify O’Mera for the Class 2A state tournament for the third straight year.

While Sequim’s five other golfers finished out of the top eight position needed to move on to state, each shot well enough to advance to the 2A Bi-District next Tuesday.

Mallory Maloney shot an 85, Ezra Perkins an 86, Josh Francis an 86, Casey Torres an 88 and Brendon Hudson an 89 to move on to Bi-Districts.

That tournament will also be held at Gold Mountain, with the top 10 from going on to state.
