Wolves nip Chimacum; head to playoffs / Soccer

With the regular season out of the way, the Coupeville High School soccer team can now focus on the district playoffs.

The Wolves wrapped up Olympic League play with a thrilling 2-1 win in overtime at Chimacum Wednesday, Oct. 25. The win lifted Coupeville’s conference record to 6-3, good for second place. It also gave the Wolves eight wins for the season, tying the most ever in program history.

The district tournament begins when Coupeville (8-8) plays Vashon Island (8-6-1), the third-place team in the Nisqually League, at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, at Oak Harbor’s Wildcat Memorial Stadium in a loser-out match.

The winner moves on to the four-team, double-elimination portion of the tournament and will meet Nisqually League champion Bellevue Christian (12-2-1) at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 31, at Renton Memorial Stadium.

Coupeville defeated Bellevue Christian 3-2 Sept. 9 in a non-league match.

The Cowboys scored midway through the second half, taking advantage of Coupeville’s inability to capitalize on its opportunities.

The Chimacum goal “sparked us into a higher gear,” coach Kyle Nelson said.

“(We had) a lot of near misses all game long,” he added.

The cascade of errant shots ended when Lindsey Roberts, who just returned after missing several weeks with an injury, evened the match with five minutes left in regulation.

Three minutes into overtime, Kalia Littlejohn drilled the golden goal for the win. The goal was Littlejohn’s 16th of the season.
