Soccer: Wolves lose another close match

Don’t believe its 3-7 league record, Coupeville has one of the Cascade Conference’s best soccer teams.
Ask King’s.
The first-place Knights are 10-1 and had all they could
handle from the Wolves in a 1-0 win at Mickey Clark Field Tuesday, April 19.
Earlier in the season, King’s had an even tougher time with
Coupeville, edging the Wolves in a shootout.
Although Coupeville sits tied for sixth in the eight-team
league, they have played nearly everyone tough. Five of the seven losses have
been by one goal, and two of those losses were in shootouts.
Even after another heart-wrenching loss to King’s,
Coupeville coach Paul Mendes liked his team’s effort: “It was a good overall
performance. We knew we had to play good team defense to stay with them, and we
did. They scored on a superbly taken free kick that no goalkeeper could have
stopped.
“We came close to scoring a number of times, with some of
our best chances coming in the closing minutes. King’s is a very good team and
we played with them right to the end.”
The Wolves (4-7-1, 3-7) head to South Whidbey (7-5, 5-5) for
an island-rivalry match Friday, April 22, at 6 p.m.
