Wolves over Wilson
After being shut out for only the second time this season last week against Gig Harbor, South Kitsap responded with a 3-1 Narrows League win Tuesday night at Wilson.
The Wolves (6-3-1 overall, 5-2-1 league) took an early lead when Crystal Polen scored in the fifth minute.
But the Rams (4-6-2, 2-4-2) later tied the match on a goal by Sarah Gamache.
“We got really comfortable controlling the tempo of the game,” South coach Michael Krug said, “and unfortunately we just made a mental error that cost us.”
But Fairweather, a senior forward, responded with a goal in the 38th and another a minute later on an assist by Riley Dopps.
“It was nice of her to take care of us so we could go into the second half and settle down a little bit,” Krug said.
Because the Narrows has 11 teams, everyone has a bye at some point, and the Wolves’ was Thursday.
That gave the team a week to prepare between the Wilson match and their 7 p.m. contest Tuesday at Shelton.
South finishes the regular season when it hosts Stadium at 7 p.m. Thursday.
“After we place for league, we play the Narrows League tournament,” Krug said. “We’re playing for seeding right now. If we take care of our business, we should take second or third.”
Krug, who is in his first year coaching at the school, said he expected the team to improve throughout the season as it adjusted to his schemes and style. He said he’s satisfied with the team’s progress.
“I’m really pleased,” Krug said. “The girls are eager, work hard and continue to make strides.”
