For the second time this season, South Whidbey denied the Coupeville High School soccer team its best bet for a conference win by edging the Wolves in another shootout, this time 2-1 Thursday, Oct. 13, at Mickey Clark Field.
The Falcons scored early and dominated play in the first half, but led just 1-0 at the break as Coupeville keeper Grace LaPoint turned back numerous Falcon shots.
Coupeville eventually evened the match on a majestic penalty kick by Kelsey Miranda, who took the shot after Micky Levine was fouled. The junior looped a 25-yard shot just over the reach of the Falcon goalie to get the Wolves back into the match.
Neither team scored again through two overtimes, but South Whidbey (4-7, 5-7) hit two of five in the shootout to Coupeville's one to take the win. Amanda d'Almeida recorded lone shootout goal for the Wolves.
Coupeville played the last quarter of the match and overtime one player down because of a red card.
South Whidbey also defeated Coupeville in a shootout Sept. 22.
The Wolves (0-11, 1-11) travel to Granite Falls (5-5, 6-6)Tuesday, Oct. 18, at 5 p.m.Contact Whidbey News Times Sports editor Jim Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-675-6611 ext. 5060.
