King's rallies to top Wolves | Soccer

King's roared back from a 2-0 deficit to edge the Coupeville High School soccer team Tuesday, March 27, at Mickey Clark Field.

The Wolves struck quickly with two early goals. Dylan Tack, with an assist from Sean Donley, scored just eight minutes into the match. Nathan Lamb added another goal six minutes later.

King's (3-0, 3-2) Rocko Menzyck scored in the 21st minute, then Cameron Duncan even the match on a penalty kick in the 25th minute.

Duncan nailed the game winner in the 34th minute.

Coupeville coach Paul Mendes said, "The first 20 minutes were the best our midfield and offense have played all year, especially considering the quality of the opposition. We scored two great goals and came close a number of times to getting the third before King's could settle into their game. Their first goal came on a long 30 yard shot that took and odd bounce and went in, which broke our momentum."

He added, "We regrouped at halftime and came back strong for the entire second half. We came very close to tying the game, creating numerous scoring opportunities and fought hard right to the last minute."

Coupeville (0-3, 1-3) goes to South Whidbey (3-0, 4-0) at 6 p.m. Friday, March 30, to finish a run of four matches against Cascade Conference teams with a combined league record of 11-1.
