Conference competition got off to a rousing start for the Coupeville High School soccer team as it trounced host Chimacum 7-2 Tuesday, Sept. 12.
“Overall, we continue to be making progress,” coach Kyle Nelson said. “Our passing game took a nice jump forward as we continue to work on various aspects of our game. We also left Chimacum healthy as we start a succession of away games this week.”
Coupeville (1-0, 2-1) travels to Sequim (1-2) for a non-league match at 5:15 Thursday, Sept. 14, and then returns to the peninsula for an Olympic League match at Port Townsend (0-2) at 1:15 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16.
Nelson provided the highlights from Tuesday’s one-sided win over Chimacum from memory and said, “I hope to give proper credit for goals and assists.”
Kalia Littlejohn, Lindsey Roberts and Genna Wright each scored two goals, and Avalon Renninger added the other.
Wright also had two assists, as did Sage Renninger, while Littlejohn and Roberts chipped in with one each.
One of Roberts’ goals was off a free kick, so no assist was recorded.
