King's held on to first place in the Cascade Conference soccer standings by defeating Coupeville 6-0 Tuesday, April 13.
The Knights (6-2) edged Coupeville 3-2 earlier this season.
In Tuesday's match, Coupeville coach Paul Mendes said, "First, King's played exceptionally well. They hit some amazing shots. An early goal off a deflection knocked us off balance, and the second goal quickly followed off an unstoppable volley shot. It took us awhile to recover."
Mendes said the Wolves made some adjustments and "played much better in the second half, allowing only one goal. It was not our night and we will use it as a learning experience."
The Wolves (4-4, 4-5) go to Granite Falls (0-8, 1-9) tonight, April 15. Coupeville defeated the Tigers 6-1 in their first meeting this year.
Coupeville will entertain Friday Harbor Friday, April 16, at 4 p.m. in a nonleague game postponed from earlier this spring.Contact Whidbey News Times Sports editor Jim Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-675-6611 ext. 5060.
