Wildcats put up battle but lose to Spartans / Soccer

Troubles continued for the Oak Harbor High School soccer team as it fell 3-0 to visiting Stanwood Wednesday, April 10.

“Another frustrating loss against an opponent we outplayed for most of the game,” Oak Harbor coach Jeff Laiblin said.

The Spartans took a 1-0 lead at the 10-minute mark on a penalty kick.

“We had a great chance to tie late in the half, but their keeper made an amazing save on a shot from Jayden Wallace,” Laiblin said. “The game stayed 1-0 for most of the game with their keeper making several saves.”

Stanwood (3-6-1, 4-7-1) punched in two “weak” goals late, according to Laiblin, to put the match away.

“I really feel for the players, because they are great young men that need a break to go their way for once,” Laiblin said.

Marysville-Pilchuck (7-1-1, 9-1-1) plays Oak Harbor (0-10, 0-12) at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 16, at Wildcat Memorial Stadium.
