Coupeville rally shocks BC / Soccer

A stunning comeback lifted the Coupeville High School soccer team to a 3-2 win over visiting Bellevue Christian Saturday, Sept. 9.

Down 2-0 in the second half, the Wolves rallied to collect their first win of the season and the hand the Vikings their first loss in three matches.

“Great win yesterday against a quality Nisqually league opponent,” Coupeville coach Kyle Nelson said. “Really nice to see the ladies never get down, keep themselves focused and keep fighting.

“A great early season victory to build upon.”

The Wolves (1-1) will take that momentum to Chimacum (0-1) Tuesday, Sept. 12, for the Olympic League opener at 4 p.m.

Bellevue Christian scored its second goal early in the second half, then the Wolves exploded.

Lauren Bayne got things started with a goal from long distance that skipped under the Viking keeper.

After receiving a well-placed free kick from Lindsey Roberts, Kalia Littlejohn beat the BC keeper one-on-one for the equalizer.

Coupeville won the match with a goal with five minutes remaining. Off a “great” corner kick from Sage Renninger, according to Nelson, the Wolves received an own goal from Bellevue Christian when a Viking tipped the ball in during the scrum for the loose ball.

From there, first-year keeper Sarah Wright and the Coupeville defenders held the Vikings to help secure the win.
