Seagulls sail by Oak Harbor | Soccer

League leader and state-ranked Everett rolled by the Oak Harbor High School soccer team 6-0 Thursday, Sept. 20, at Wildcat Memorial Stadium.

Wildcat coach Jeff Laiblin said, "This is a learning process; I saw some good things."

Laiblin pointed out that the powerful Seagulls (3-0, 6-1) have a "great midfield" and have "put the beat down on some good teams."

He also noted that the loss was "a far cry" from past years which included double-digit losses to Everett.

The Wildcats played a "sloppy first half," Laiblin said, and "you can't do that against a good team."

He added, "Their first solid goal was 60 minutes into the match."

Although his club was shutout, Laiblin said he "liked how we showed an offensive presence for the first time in a long time."

Oak Harbor (0-3, 1-4-1) goes on the road twice next week, starting with a 7:30 p.m. match at Stanwood (1-1, 2-3) Tuesday, Sept. 25.
