SPORTS: Sequim shuts out Port Townsend 4-0 in boys soccer; other prep reports

PORT TOWNSEND — Sequim scored four goals in the first half and cruised to a nonleague boys soccer win over Port Townsend on Thursday.

The Wolves are now 3-0 on the year after the 4-0 victory.

The weather was dry and chilly but the field was soggy from previous storms.

“It was a mud bowl,” Sequim coach Dave Brasher said.

Waylon Lam scored the only goal the Wolves needed just eight minutes into the game on a Nick Camporini assist.

Omar Flores made it 2-0 at the halfway mark in the first half at 20 minutes on another Camporini assist while Beau Little made it 3-0 at 26 minutes on a Mitch McHugh assist.

Omar’s cousin, Saul Flores, finished the scoring at the 39th minute on another assist by McHugh.

Many reserves played in the second half for Sequim as the Redskins outshot the Wolves 11-10.

Byron Boots had another strong game in the net with six saves for the Wolves, who have now beaten Port Angeles, Chimacum and Port Townsend.

It was the second shutout for Boots.

Despite the mud, the Sequim offense was sharp, making 40 percent of its shots on goal.

“We had some solid shots,” Brasher said.

“And our defense played well again, even though we were filling in kids in the second half.”

Mason Barrett and Lijah Sanford had strong defensive games while Michael Lee played well in the midfield, Brasher said.

The Wolves next host North Kitsap in a nonleague game Tuesday night.

Forks 4, Montesano 3
