Bookend goals carry Port Townsend past Wolves | Soccer

Port Townsend scored very early and very late to pull out a 2-1 soccer win over visiting Coupeville High School Saturday, Sept. 15.

The Redskins converted just three minutes into the match, and the lead held until Coupeville freshman Makana Stone tied it up 15 minutes into the second half.

Stone's goal is the Wolves' first of the season after opening the year with three shutout losses.

Port Townsend squeaked in a goal with only two minutes left to earn the win.

Coupeville coach Dan d'Almeida said his club, which was missing four starters, "was really undermanned" and "missing its front line."

He added, "We had more (scoring) opportunities than they did, but we did not have enough key players to execute.

"However, the young players played well and I am pretty happy with our play. Our young players are getting good experience. Good stuff."

Coupeville (0-4) should be back to full strength, d'Almeida said, for Tuesday's (Sept. 18) 6 p.m. home showdown with South Whidbey (0-3-1).
