Klahowya continued its dominance in soccer in the Olympic League, beating Coupeville 4-0 Saturday, Oct. 22, in Silverdale.
The Eagles ran their record to 7-0 (10-1-2), while second-place Coupeville dropped to 5-3, 7-6-1.
“(The) girls gave everything they had,” coach Troy Cowan said. “(They) followed my instructions to the letter and never quit, and we still came up short on the scoreboard, but not on my scoreboard.
“We don’t have a bunch of premier level players or even a bunch of select level players. What Coupeville does have is a bunch of players with heart, guts and never die attitudes.”
The Wolves host Chimacum (1-6, 2-7-1) in the regular season finale at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25, and then head to the playoffs.
Coupeville opens district play with a loser-out game against the third-place team from the Nisqually League at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, in Oak Harbor.
That third-place team is currently Vashon Island (7-3-3), the squad that eliminated the Wolves from the playoffs the previous two seasons.
If Coupeville wins the district opener, it moves on to the four-team, double-elimination portion of the tournament and faces Nisqually League champion Cascade Christian (13-0-1) at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, at Orting Middle School. A win there or in the following loser-out game will earn a state berth.
