After squandering several scoring chances in the first half, the Oak Harbor girls soccer team, behind Millie Goebel, punched in three second half goals to defeat visiting Lynnwood 3-0 Saturday, Sept. 18.
Senior Goebel scored all three Wildcat goals with freshmen Annie Leete assisting twice and Chelsea Atkinson once. Her goals came at the 50th, 65th and 75th minute marks.
While Goebel and company were leading the offense, the Oak Harbor defense behind keeper Jordan Boucher earned its second shutout of the season. Clarissa Abadesco, Ashley Everett, MaKenzie Schneider, Jessica Burns, Lily Mosolino and Maura McKole "provided an iron curtain back line," according to coach Jeff Laiblin.
Laiblin added, "I can't emphasize enough how much a team effort this game was. We played all 17 players, with each coming in and doing her job in this victory. I am proud of all my girls."
Oak Harbor (1-2, 2-3) goes to Glacier Peak (2-0, 3-0-1) Tuesday, Sept. 21, at 7:30 p.m.Contact Whidbey News Times Sports editor Jim Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-675-6611 ext. 5060.
