Wildcats earn first win / Soccer

The Oak Harbor High School soccer team put its first check in the win column with a 2-0 victory over South Whidbey Saturday, Sept. 23, at Wildcat Memorial Stadium.

Although the Wildcats won their first match in eight tries, coach Mike Lonborg said, “Today was not pretty.”

“We have a tendency to play to our opponent’s skills,” he added. “We had a hard time stringing passes together.”

Regardless, it was a win, thanks to goals by Caylie Etherington and Natalie Plush.

Oak Harbor (0-4, 1-7) returns to conference play when its hosts Meadowdale (1-2-1, 2-2-2) at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26.
