SPORTS: Kingston nips Port Townsend in soccer; other preps results

KINGSTON — Kingston nipped Port Townsend 2-1 in girls soccer Tuesday night.

The Redskins’ (0-2-0, 2-2-0) defense lapsed for just a moment before halftime and the Buccaneers took advantage to score and take the lead into halftime.

Kingston added a goal in the 70th minute before Port Townsend freshman Irina Lyons ran onto a through ball from Khloe Frank and fired it into the net for the Redskins’ lone score.

Elena Akins and Jennifer Grauberger were outstanding in defense and Frank once again dominated the midfield for the Redskins.

The team had only 14 players suited up and eligible for the game.

“The work rate of the entire team is impressive and we wait to see what we can do with a full, fit squad,” coach Colin Foden said.

Port Townsend hosts North Mason on Tuesday.
