Kingston held scoreless against Sequim

The Kingston Buccaneers looked for the first win of the season when the Sequim Wolves came to town Oct. 4. Although Kingston’s defense held strong throughout most of the soccer match, Sequim left with a 2-0 victory.

Sequim started the night with a through ball that led to the first shot of the game in the 38th minute. Sequim’s Libby Turella forced a shot right to Kingston’s goalie, Kalli Lloyd, a few minutes later.

After about 10 minutes of no-shot attempts, Sequim’s Taryn Johnson kicked the Wolves’ offense into another gear. She deked a few defenders on separate occasions and rifled shots to keep the pressure on Kingston.

Kingston’s Justice Correa-West looked to answer back but Sequim held firm. Instead, the two squads went scoreless into halftime.

In the second half, Sequim scored early to take a 1-0 lead. Afterward, Lloyd tried to push Kingston’s momentum by leading the troops and taking free kicks. However, her free kick from midfield flew past the Sequim goalie for a goal kick. Sequim answered with another goal in the final 20 minutes before playing a prevent defense.

Kingston tried to connect passes on their half with 10 minutes remaining but failed. Instead, the Buccaneers only crossed midfield a handful of times in the final minutes, causing Kingston to drop its sixth match in a row.
