Sports Roundup | Sept. 29

A look at this weekend’s football games and Thursday night soccer and volleyball action.

Weekend football preview

Olympia (3-1) at South Kitsap (0-4), 7 p.m.

The Wolves continue to search for their first win of the season and host Olympia at Kitsap Ban Stadium. Olympia is coming off a 17-14 loss to a 1-3 Curtis squad, and could be vulnerable to a South Kitsap team hungry to get into the win column. The worst of their schedule is now behind them, and this game could be an important stepping stone to a successful second half for the young Wolves team.

Sequim (2-2) at North Kitsap (4-0), 7 p.m.

An Olympic League showdown with Bremerton looms ahead for North Kitsap, but it must first deal with Sequim, which lost to Bremerton 30-22 last week. If the Vikings pass this test, the game against Bremerton on Oct. 6 could very well decide the league title.

Cedar Park Christian (Bothell) at Bremerton (4-0), 7 p.m.

The Knights look to extend its undefeated season against Cedar Park Christian. Senior running back Sema’J Cook has racked up 600 yards and seven touchdowns through four games, leading the Bremerton Wing-T attack.

North Mason (3-1) at Olympic (1-3), 7:15 p.m.

The Bulldogs look to stay alive in the Olympic League 2A race in a matchup with a struggling, inexperienced Olympic team. With a tough league loss to Port Angeles last week, North Mason needs both North Kitsap and Bremerton to fall at some point this season to have a chance.

Kingston (0-4) at Port Angeles (2-2), 7 p.m.

Both teams have struggled to score this year, so this game will be a good opportunity for the offenses to build some confidence. The Roughriders are coming off an unexpected win over North Mason last week.

Central Kitsap (2-2) at Gig Harbor (1-3)

The Cougars two losses have been to North Kitsap and Timberline, both ranked in the top ten in the state in their respective classifications. Central Kitsap went toe-to-toe with Timberline in its last game and should fare much better against Gig Harbor to help itself back in to the South Sound Conference 3A race.

Klahowya (1-3) at Cascade Christian (3-1) Sept. 30, 7 p.m.

Cascade Christian is usually a favorite to win one of the Nisqually League spots, but an upset by Klahowya could change the entire picture. The Eagles graduated 29 players off of last year’s 7-3 team, can they pull off the upset here?

Klahowya 5, North Kitsap 1

Curtis 3, South Kitsap 2

The Wolves lost a heartbreaker in stoppage time to Curtis, which now sits in second place in the South Puget Sound 4A League, just one point behind Puyallup. Teanna Lathum and Savannah Foster both scored for South Kitsap.

Olympic 4, Bremerton 2

The Knights actually held a 2-0 lead at halftime on two Lucy Holloway goals, but the Trojans came to life in the second half. Sydney Troy scored twice for Olympic.
