Wildcats continue trend / Soccer

Same story, different chapter. The Oak Harbor High School soccer team lost 2-1 to Shorewood Tuesday, Oct. 17, at Shoreline Stadium.

The loss was the Wildcats’ sixth in Western Conference play by one goal.

Shorewood scored twice in the first half, then the Wildcats got on the board on a long-range shot by Caylie Etherington midway through the second period.

“We put pressure on them the entire second half and had some chances but just couldn’t put it in,” coach Mike Lonborg said.

“It all comes down to tiny mistakes,” Lonborg said in regard to the close losses.

“We are competitive but all it takes is slight errors, and whichever team makes fewer errors gets the win. Unfortunately we have been on the wrong side of those errors even though they are small.”

A poor pass in Oak Harbor’s penalty box handed the Thunderbirds their second goal, he said.

“Tiny mistakes that bite us.”

Oak Harbor (1-9, 2-12) plays at Marysville-Pilchuck (5-5, 5-7-1) at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19, and then finishes the season at home with Mountlake Terrace (1-7-2, 2-9-2) at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24.
