So far this season, the Coupeville High School soccer team has proved to be the second-best team in the Olympic League; it also found out recently how far it has to go to be the No. 1.

League-leading and unbeaten Klahowya defeated the Wolves 9-0 at Mickey Clark Field Tuesday, Sept. 26.

Earlier this season, Coupeville clubbed league foes Chimacum 7-2 and Port Townsend 8-0, setting up a battle for first place with Klahowya.

The Eagles (4-0, 6-0) are the gold standard in the Olympic League 1A division and have not lost a conference match since the the division was formed in 2014, a string of 24 wins.

“We found out how high the bar is,” Coupeville coach Kyle Nelson said after Tuesday’s match. “Now we know where to go; we are always trying to improve.”

The Wolves are still a work in progress, he added, as they continue to “work on communication and playing together.”

Nelson noted that matches like this are important: “When you get beat, it shows you what you need to work on.”

Coupeville (2-1, 4-4) plays at Port Townsend (1-2, 2-5) at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 28.
