Wildcats, Chargers play to scoreless tie / Soccer

Outstanding goalkeeping forced the Oak Harbor and Marysville Getchell high school soccer teams to settle for a 0-0 tie Tuesday, April 18, in Marysville.

“It was a battle of the keepers,” Oak Harbor coach Jeff Laiblin said. “Jared Hoyt played the best game of his career, and the keeper for Getchell, Erik James, also played fantastic for them, making several key saves during the match.”

Hoyt made an outstanding save with five minutes left in regulation and with 10 seconds left in overtime, according to Laiblin.

James countered with several key saves in regulation and overtime to keep Oak Harbor off the board.

“We were disappointed to not get the win,” Laiblin said. “I felt our energy level was low at times in the match, but, all in all, I was happy with the heart the boys played with.”

With the tie, Oak Harbor’s record is now 1-6-2 (3-7-3) and Getchell is 2-3-3 (3-4-4).

The Wildcats host Stanwood (1-6-1, 1-9-2) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 21.
