Injury-riddled Wolves lose at district / Soccer

In one of those “what-might-have-been” contests, the shorthanded Coupeville High School soccer team was eliminated from the postseason with a 3-1 loss to Meridian Saturday, May 4, at Whatcom Community College.

The Wolves (6-10) played without several key players, including leading scorer Derek Leyva. They lost their second-leading scorer Aram Leyva and starting keeper Dewitt Cole to injuries during the match.

The Trojans, the No. 1 seed out of the Northwest Conference entering the tournament, scored all three of their goals in the first half.

Freshman Xavier Murdy tallied his first career goal for the Wolves’ in the second half.

With the win, Meridian (10-7-2) claimed the fifth and final berth into the bi-district tournament.
