South Whidbey defeats Coupeville / Soccer

South Whidbey scored two unanswered second-half goals to defeat Coupeville 4-2 Thursday, Sept. 7, in the season soccer opener.

“Overall we had a really great effort last night,” Coupeville coach Kyle Nelson said. “We made many really good plays and were able to get a couple of goals.”

Kalia Littlejohn, off an assist from Lindsey Roberts, scored early in the match to give the Wolves the lead.

The Falcons countered with a pair goals, then Coupeville tied the match just before halftime when Roberts scored.

South Whidbey knocked in two goals in the second half, but Coupeville was unable to match the effort.

“Even though I thought we made some good adjustments in the second half, we were beaten in the half,” Nelson said.

Coupeville (0-1) plays its home opener at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9, with Bellevue Christian (2-0).
