Wolves use shootout to edge Redhawks / Soccer

Avoiding a big meltdown, the Coupeville High School soccer team defeated host Port Townsend 5-4 in a shootout Thursday, Sept. 28.

The Wolves jumped to a 4-1 first-half lead and appeared to be on the way to another easy win over the Redhawks. Coupeville defeated PT 8-0 Sept. 16. The Redhawks had other ideas and rallied to tie the score in regulation.

After a scoreless overtime period, Coupeville topped Port Townsend 3-2 in the shootout to secure the win.

Lauren Bayne, Genna Wright and Maddy Hilkey provided the shootout goals for the Wolves, while keeper Sarah Wright added “a couple of nice saves,” according to coach Kyle Nelson.

Genna Wright paced the first-half scoring with a pair of goals. Ema Smith and Mallory Kortuem added the others.

The Wolves (3-1, 5-4) tightened their grip on second place in the Olympic League with the win.

Coupeville entertains Chimacum (0-4, 0-5) at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 3.
