‘Cats suffer another close loss / Soccer

Another day, another hard-luck loss for the Oak Harbor High School soccer team.

The Wildcats lost 1-0 to visiting Stanwood Thursday, Oct. 12. It was their fifth one-goal setback of the season, all coming to teams that are currently ranked among the top six in the Western Conference.

Stanwood’s Espy Sanchez scored just after halftime to help the second-place Spartans (6-1-2, 7-3-2) escape Oak Harbor with a win.

The Wildcats (1-8, 2-11) play Shorewood (3-6-1, 4-8-2) at Shoreline Stadium at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17.
