Wolves drop district play-in match / Soccer

Vashon Island brought Coupeville High School’s soccer season to an end by defeating the Wolves 2-0 Saturday, Oct. 28, in a district tournament play-in match at Oak Harbor’s Wildcat Memorial Stadium.

Coupeville, once again, failed to get by the first round of the playoffs, but it did finish with eight wins, tying the school record. The Wolves were 6-3 in Olympic League play, good for second place, and 8-9 overall.

Coupeville will have an excellent chance to surpass the eight-win mark next fall because this year’s team includes only two seniors, Sage Renninger and Lauren Payne.

Also returning will be the Wolves’ top three scorers, led by junior Kalia Littlejohn. Littlejohn finished 2017 with 16 goals and now has 34 career goals, one shy of sister Mia Littlejohn’s school record.

Vashon Island raised its record to 9-6-1 and will face Nisqually League champion Bellevue Christian (12-2-1) in a loser-out match Tuesday, Oct. 31.

The Pirates scored seven minutes into the Coupeville match Saturday and then added a second goal just before halftime.

Coupeville produced several good scoring opportunities but could not convert.
