Oak Harbor falls in final match

The Oak Harbor High School tennis team ended the 2008 WesCo North season with a 1-15 record losing the final regular season match 6-1 to Marysville-Pilchuck Friday afternoon.

Lauren Ricco, playing in fourth singles, was the only winner for the Wildcats, defeating Sasha Thomas 6-2, 6-1.

’Cats lose another close one

Jessica Kallander had the only extra base hit as the Oak Harbor High School softball team lost a narrow 6-4 decision to Lake Stevens in a Friday WesCo North softball game.

The Vikings held a 4-0 lead with a run in the bottom of the second inning and three more in the bottom of the third, before the Wildcats mounted a rally.

In the top of the fourth inning, Oak Harbor (1-13 league, 2-16 overall) pushed four big runs across the plate to tie the score.

However, the Vikings (5-8 league, 6-9 overall) scored two more runs off losing pitcher Whitney Osborne in the bottom of the fourth inning to win the game.

Oak Harbor battles Tomahawks

A 1-14-1 record is not indicative of how hard the Oak Harbor High School soccer team played during the 2008 WesCo North season — and Thursday’s final game on Senior Night against Marysville-Pilchuck was no exception.

Pitted against the the 13-3 Tomahawks, the Wildcats left everything they had on the field in dropping a 2-1 decision to Marysville-Pilchuck that finished in second place in the league.

“This team is way better than their record looks. That’s about all I can say,” coach Steve Barker said at the conclusion of the game.

The Tomahawks took a 1-0 lead at the 15-minute mark of the first half when Nickolas Burdett beat Oak Harbor keeper Jack O’Neil with a penalty kick.

Oak Harbor stepped things up on defense and O’Neil made eight saves to keep the score 1-0 at halftime.

Six minutes into the second half of action, Brady Ballew made the score 2-0, with a crossing shot from the right side that the diving O’Neil couldn’t tip away.

The Wildcats remained tough, controlling the pace of the game and a bouncing shot by Kevin Flavin at the 69-minute mark got past Marysville-Pilchuck goal keeper Erik Cruz to cut the lead in half.

Oak Harbor had several other scoring opportunities late in the game, but was unable to tie the score.
