Marysville Getchell, one of the preseason favorites to win the Wesco 3A soccer title, slipped by Oak Harbor 2-0 Friday, March 23, at Wildcat Memorial Stadium.
The Wildcats stayed within one goal until the Chargers (4-0) tacked on the final score late in the match.
Oak Harbor coach Brian Thompson said, "We played another really good game. Our defense -- Caley Powers, Isaiah Trower, Chase Muller and Ryan Gilman -- never stopped fighting and did not allow their very skilled forwards from getting more than the two goals."
Thompson said keeper "Kevin Silveira did great in the goal with six saves."
He added, "All of our players are doing well and we are getting better with each game. The coaching staff is very proud of this team and we are very optimistic this season will end well."
Oak Harbor (0-3-1) goes to Lynnwood (3-2) Tuesday, March 27, and then comes home to face Meadowdale (1-2-1) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 30.Contact Whidbey News Times Sports editor Jim Waller at email@example.com or 360-675-6611 ext. 5060.
