Looking for some relief from a tough regular season, the Coupeville High School soccer team didn’t find any in the district tournament, losing 6-0 at Lynden Christian Wednesday, Oct. 24.

While Lynden Christian (10-6) dominated the first half, going up 2-0, Coupeville (1-16) came out energized in the second and appeared it might get back into the match, controlling the ball the first 10 minutes.

“If we had collected a score, the outcome would have been very different,” coach Dan d’Almeida said.æ Frankly, once they got their third goal, our team lost focus and let the cold and wind get to them.”

The Wolves, with many reserves getting playing experience, then gave up three late goals. The future looks bright for Coupeville, d’Almeida said, as he started eight underclassmen.

“Our core senior group will be missed,” he said. Collectively the seniors amassed over 100 starts for Coupeville.
