The Coupeville soccer team battled Port Townsend and Mother Nature in a 1-0 win over Port Townsend Thursday, Oct. 19, at Mickey Clark Field.
The Wolves played with a strong wind at their back in the first half, “taking a lot of good shots that were narrowly missing,” according to coach Kyle Nelson.
One shot, however, found the back of the net as Mallory Kortuem drove home the match’s only goal from distance.
That set up the second half when Coupeville had to hold off Port Townsend (1-6, 2-11) and its wind-aided attack.
“Our defense stayed strong and Sarah Wright provided some excellent saves to maintain the victory,” Nelson said.
The Wolves (5-2, 7-7) host Klahowya (7-0, 12-1) on Senior Night at 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 23.
