Soccer: Eagles split week's matches

If the Klahowya Eagles girls soccer team can figure out a way to score, watch out.

The Eagles, who have ridden a strong defense and solid goal keeping to a 5-6-1 overall record (4-4 in Nisqually League play), again relied on those constants to split the week’s matches with a 4-0 loss Tuesday to Seattle Christian at home and a 2-1 shoot-out win over Vashon Thursday on the road.

Against Seattle Christian, the Eagles were able to move the ball fairly well, taking advantage of the lack of SC pressure. And while defense was solid, SC was able to take advantage of the few breakdowns it saw.

“To me the score isn’t very indicative of how the game went,” Eagles coach Troy Oelschlager said. “We had four breakdowns on defense. Maybe a few more, but four that hurt us.”
