Klahowya 3, Port Angeles 0
BREMERTON — The Roughriders’ season came to an end in the Olympic League seeding tournament Saturday at Silverdale Stadium.
The Eagles capitalized on sloppy defense by Port Angeles in the 18th minute when Paul Powell scored on an assist by Casey Sargent.
The Riders pressured on Klahowya throughout the match but were unable to score a goal in regulation against Klahowya for the third time this season.
The Riders had beaten Klahowya twice earlier in league play (both in shootouts), but the Eagles got revenge in Saturday’s loser-out game.
In the second half, James Charoenmak scored on a long shot that hit the underside of the crossbar and bounced over the goal line and out of the goal.
Port Angeles switched to a lineup with three forwards and three defenders but were still unable to score despite coming up with some late opportunities.
The Eagles sealed the win with a goal in the 80th minute by Sargent.
Port Angeles coach Chris Saari chose Vincent Ioffrida as the Riders’ defensive player of the match at Tristen Isett as the transition player of the match.
Port Angeles’ season was an improvement from last year’s 3-13 rebuilding year.
The Riders finished in fifth place in the Olympic League with a 7-10 overall record and advanced to the postseason.
Saari said Port Angeles looks to continue its improvement in 2015.
Sequim plays today
Klahowya (10-7) moves on to face first-place Kingston today in the Olympic league seeding tournament.
The other Olympic League seeding match features third-place Sequim playing at second-place North Kitsap today at 6:45 p.m.
Port Townsend falls
In other soccer action Saturday, Port Townsend lost its 1A Nisqually League play-in game 2-1 to Seattle Christian at Memorial Field.
“Unfortunately, our season is done,” Redskins coach Steve Shively said.
Port Townsend finishes the season 5-12, taking seventh place in the 2A Olympic League.
Next year, the Redskins will play in the four-team 1A Olympic League with Chimacum, Coupeville and Klahowya, which is dropping down to Class 1A next season.
