PREP ROUNDUP: Sequim boys soccer plays well, just can't score in road opener

BREMERTON — Sequim controlled the match but couldn’t break through and score against a stacked defense in a 1-0 Olympic League boys soccer loss to Olympic on the road Tuesday night.

“We held possession 80 percent of the game and they held a seven-man back line, parking the bus, so to speak,” coach Dave Breckinridge said. “We were still able to break through their back line with some great decisions from Josh Alcaraz and Evan Cisneros, but unfortunately they were a little heavy on the delivery.”

Olympic scored off a rebound after sending in a long ball bouncing into the goal box in the 35th minute.

Breckenridge said senior Mekhi Ashby worked hard in the second half.

“Mehki had a strong second half with multiple shots under pressure that just didn’t find the net,” he said.

Sequim (1-1) hosts undefeated North Kitsap tonight.

North Mason 7, Port Angeles 1

BELFAIR — The Riders’ youth movement had a night to forget on the road Tuesday night, according to coach Chris Saari.

Playing seven freshmen and a number of sophomores, Port Angeles allowed two early North Mason goals, but did pull one back in the 17th minute when Oliver Martinez notched his first varsity goal.

“Defender Grant Butterworth took a long free kick and sophomore classmate Oliver Martinez headed the ball over the Bulldog goalkeeper’s head as the keeper came out,” Saari said.

“The Bulldogs were able to get a couple more goals before halftime. [We] had some defensive lapses and miscues and North Mason capitalized on their opportunities.”

Saari said the Riders missed out on a couple of opportunities after halftime.

“Jacob Weaver had a free kick that the Bulldog goalkeeper tipped off the crossbar and Oliver Martinez had a good chance with an empty net from a tough angle and was unable to cut the ball back enough to score,” Saari said.

Freshman Jordan Saluskin finished out the match in goal and Saari said he made a couple of good saves to keep the Bulldogs from adding on to the score.

Port Angeles (1-2-0, 2-3-0) hosts Olympic on Friday.
