Behind a relentless offense and a stingy defense, the Coupeville High School soccer team clipped host Concrete 4-1 Tuesday, Sept. 6, in the season opener.
Coach Mike Thornton said the Wolves "looked a little nervous" early and allowed a goal in the 13th minute. Coupeville's constant offensive pressure finally paid off when Kelsey Miranda scored off an assist by Micky LeVine in the 34th minute.
Three minutes later, the Wolves took the lead when Erin Rosenkrace scored with an assist from Amanda d'Almeida and Ana Luvera.
In the second half, Coupeville added another goal when a corner kick bounced off a Lion defender.
At the 74th minute, Rosenkrance struck again, this time beating her defender and the goalie for the score.
The Wolves out shot Concrete 27-3 as Coupeville keeper Grace LaPoint recorded three saves.
Coupeville travels to Archbishop Murphy Tuesday, Sept. 13, for a 4:45 p.m. match.Contact Whidbey News Times Sports editor Jim Waller at email@example.com or 360-675-6611 ext. 5060.
