The Coupeville High School soccer team solidified its hold on second place in the Olympic League with a 3-2 win over Chimacum Tuesday, Oct. 3, at Mickey Clark Field.
The Wolves improved their conference record to 4-1 (6-4 overall) and pulled farther away from third-place Port Townsend (1-3, 2-6).
Coupeville plays two non-league games before returning to league action when it will go to first-place Klahowya (4-0, 9-0) Oct. 17.
First up is a trip to Port Angeles (5-4) at 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 5.
Winless Chimacum (0-5, 0-6) put up a stronger fight than the first time it tangled with Coupeville, a 7-2 loss Sept. 12.
Coupeville’s Kalia Littlejohn put the Wolves up 1-0 with an early goal, but the Cowboys countered with a pair to take a 2-1 lead.
Littlejohn struck again with the equalizer, her 15th goal this season, 20 minutes into the match.
The score remained knotted until Genna Wright scored a second-half goal off a corner kick by Sage Renninger.
