Wind, Mount Baker take down Wolves / Soccer

Mount Baker took advantage of a stiff wind at its back and a shorthanded Coupeville High School soccer team to defeat the Wolves 4-2 Monday, March 11, at Mickey Clark Field.

The winded picked up in the second half, and Coupeville, battling Mother Nature, found it tough to get the ball past middle field.

The Wolves went into the match with only one sub, and he was needed with starter Aram Leyva, who scored three goals in Coupeville’s opening contest Saturday, left with an injury.

Coupeville’s Derek Leyva scored the match’s first goal less than 10 minutes into the action. Mount Baker soon countered, then James Wood scored on a corner kick to give the Wolves a 2-1 halftime lead.

As the wind blew harder, Coupeville’s offense stalled while the Mountaineers took advantage and scored three goals in the second half to secure the non-league win.

Coupeville (1-1) goes to Meridian (1-0) at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 14.
