Oak Harbor and Bellingham fought to a 0-0 tie in soccer Tuesday, March 18, at Wildcat Memorial Stadium.
Wildcat coach Brian Thompson said, "(It was) a very exciting game, evenly matched where either team could have won."
Oak Harbor had an opportunity to win the match with seconds left, but the Raider goalkeeper Connor Zeljkov turned away a Wildcat penalty kick.
Kevin Silveira earned the shutout in the Oak Harbor goal.
"We had a few minor injuries that held a couple players out at the end of the game, but the players coming in off the bench did a great job and kept us in the game," Thompson said. "We moved the ball well offensively and the defensive played very well."
The Wildcats were missing three starters. One, Dakota Powers, is out for the year with a broken leg, according to Thompson.
