Miscues continue to hurt Wildcats / Soccer

Mistakes continued to haunt the Oak Harbor High School soccer team in its 4-1 loss to visiting Edmonds-Woodway Friday, March 29.

“The final results does not reflect the game,” coach Jeff Laiblin said. “(It) could have been 1-1 or 1-0. We started the game by giving up an own goal and then some bad mistakes led to the rest of the EW goals.”

Laiblin noted that the pattern “could be the story of our season.”

The Wildcats picked up their goal when Jonathan Tang scored on an assist from Nathan Merrill.

“Now we enter a tough stretch of the season where we won’t be 100 percent due to injuries and spring break,” Laiblin said. “What I know is this, I believe in these players and this team and that they will continue to play hard, play their best and be competitive.

“Once we get over that initial hurdle of getting that first positive result, we will see the results.”

Oak Harbor (0-6, 0-8) goes to Archbishop Murphy (1-3-2, 1-4-2) at 6 p.m. Monday, April 1.
