PREPS: Bremerton edges Sequim in penalty kick shootout

SEQUIM — Sequim came four minutes away from a regulation victory but was penalized late and the Wolves eventually dropped a penalty kick shootout 4-3 to Bremerton on Tuesday night.

“The game was great and hard fought on both ends,” coach Dave Breckenridge said.

Sequim tied the game at 1-all in the first half.

“Nicco Musso scored the tying goal by an amazing drive by Finn Braatan breaking through down the right side to the touch line and driving through multiple defenders to send a beautiful through ball to the penalty mark where Nicco was to put it away,” Breckenridge said.

Mekhi Ashby put Sequim up 2-1 in the second half.

“He made a great turn at the top of the 18-yard box and blasted a screamer to beat the keeper near post,” Breckenridge said. “He absolutely threaded a needle to make the shot.”

The Wolves tried to possess the ball and keep the Knights in check.

“Bremerton continued to play boot ball and send their guy in the box,” Breckenridge said. “Unfortunately, we ended up at the mercy of another bad call [a penalty].”

Ashby and Braaten made their penalty kicks in the shootout but the Wolves had two attempts saved by the Knights’ goalkeeper.

“The boys played great ...We still had a chance to get that victory and that’s on us for not finishing,” Breckenridge said.

Sequim (6-7-0) rounds out the regular season at Kingston (2-10-0) tonight.

PORT TOWNSEND — The Rivals earned a senior night victory and prepped for the playoffs with a home win Tuesday night at Memorial Field.

“We started off very slow and picked things up after we scored a goal,” coach Logan Stegner said. “The highlight of the match would be getting all of seniors some playing time on the field — a very special group of students.”

Rivals goal-scorers were Rene Martin, Edu Martinez and Simon Barlow.

East Jefferson (4-7-3, 4-9-3) is the Nisqually League No. 6 and will play at No. 3 Klahowya (9-2-2, 11-2-2) in a loser-out contest at noon Saturday. The Rivals earned a 1-1 draw against the Eagles and also fell 3-1 to Klahowya last Friday.
