Wolves stun Tigers in double overtime

Tuesday's 2-1 victory in double overtime over undefeated Archbishop Murphy was the biggest win in the history of the Coupeville High School soccer program.

All season long, the Wolves have played tough and aggressive on the field and all that hard work has paid off.

Matt Leen off a Sean Ryan assist gave Archbishop Burphy a 1-0 lead just six minutes into the match and that was the last time Wolf Pack goal keeper Evan Ameluxen-Coleman would fail to turn back a shot.

At the 56-minute mark, Coupeville's Mitch Stevenson tied the score with a header off a corner kick, but that was only the beginning of the heroics for the sophomore midfielder.

The scored was tied 1-1 at the end of regulation time and remained knotted at the conclusion of the first 5-minute overtime period.

With six seconds remaining in the second overtime period the Wolves were awarded a corner kick and due to a delay by the Tigers, the officiating crew allowed the match to continue after time had expired.

Senior Geoff Wacker had his header attempt bounce off an Archbishop Murphy player and teammate Justin Adams had his bicycle kick scoring attempt glance off the goal post.

With Tiger goal keeper Doug Ehlebracht now out of position, Stevenson pounded the rebound home for the game-winning score.

The victory evens the Wolf Pack's season record in the Cascade Conference at 5-5.
