Eagles draw against Seahawks
It might not have been the game Klahowya was hoping for, but the Eagles girls soccer team still controls its own destiny.
We didnt play our best game, Klahowya coach Troy Oelschlager said of Thursdays 1-1 tie with Peninsula. We were a little on our heels most the game.
But at 4-3-1 in league play, the Eagles still have the inside track on a postseason berth.
We control our own fate, Oelschlager said. One of our goals is to get to the state tournament. To do that, we need to be the No. 1 team from our district.
After Peninsulas Megan Blunk put a goal by Klahowyas Kazandra Holliday, the Eagles responded. Just five minutes after Peninsulas goal, Sierra Cook planted one to knot it up.
And while the end result wasnt what they wanted, the team has been on a roll lately.
I think were on that track, Oelschlager said. Giving away a couple league games early in the season wasnt in the game plan, but were playing better as of late.
But he knows his team will still have to come up big with a game Thursday at Port Townsend.
Theres no guarantee well be the No. 1 or 2 team, Oelschlager said. Weve of lots of things to do better between now and then.
The team will need to stay solid.
Everybody contributing and playing well, he said. Its just everyone doing what they need to do.
