A strong first half carried the Port Angeles High School soccer team to a 9-3 non-league win over visiting Coupeville Thursday, Oct. 5.
“A tough opponent tonight, with a tough first half,” Coupeville coach Kyle Nelson said. “We came back and played a much better second half. Our defense was able to make some adjustments and kept their score down in the second half.”
The Wolves punched in three goals after the break, two from Sage Renninger off free kicks. The other score came on a “nice back-post run” by Knight Arndt, according to Nelson.
“We look at these game as opportunities to improve, and we figured out a few things tonight,” Nelson said. “We came out a stronger team.”
Coupeville (6-5) plays another non-league match at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10, at home against Sequim (6-4) before returning to conference play.
