Kennedy Sends Sequim Home Early 2-0

Rats!  It’s All Over!

May 15, 2003


 A beat-up and tired Sequim team chose a bad time to have an average game as the Kennedy Lancers ended the Wolves season with a 2-0 victory at Highline Stadium in Burien.  A deflected free kick and a failed clear of a corner kick gave the Lancers a 2-0 lead after 25 minutes.  The Wolves, after dominating the first 10 minutes, couldn’t quite get it going again despite all-out effort in the second half.  An apparent tying goal, 5 minutes after the Lancers first goal, was disallowed because of a “hand” ball.  This might have changed the whole complexion of the game but ahh, not to be.

  Playing frantic catch-up, the Wolves got out of their control game and you know the rest.  It’s hard to write good stuff after a tough loss.


Thanks for a great season, everyone!!!





Wolves Win Play-Off Thriller 2-1 in Penalties

McKenzie Large Again in PK Victory over Franklin Pierce

May 13, 2003


  After a week off, it took the Wolves a whole 40 minutes to remember how to play well.  Franklin Pierce, the SeaMount’s Pierce Division 4th place team took the Wolves deep into penalty kicks Tuesday at the Cardinals home field in Tacoma, before the Wolves were able to leave with a victory.  The Cardinals scored first, 8 minutes in, when Josh Strong ended up with the ball on the left side after Sequim was unlucky in attempting to clear a long throw-in.  He made no mistake, hammering it past Kyle McKenzie low and to his left.  The Wolves were lucky to escape at halftime only down by one, as Franklin Pierce was unable to convert a couple of nice chances.

     The second half was a different story as the Wolves dominated completely.  Mario Servin played out of his mind with a series of dazzling runs midway through the half.  The best one ended up with the ball in the back of the net, leveling the score.  Beginning arguably the best sequence of the year, Servin started an attack with a run on the left near midfield.  Juking one defender, Mario sent the ball central to Elliot Watson who settled it and carried it to the right.  Joe Quan seeing the play develop, swept right on a corner run.  Watson saw him and pushed a lovely ball over to the right corner.  Quan, in stride, launched a beautiful driving cross toward striker Evan Still.  Still one-touched a sweet nudge on to a streaking Servin who had headed goalward after his initial pass to Watson.  Mario completed the goal with a right-footed blast while sprinting full speed!  Oh Yes!!

     Sequim also dominated the two overtime periods, nearly getting the “Golden Goal” right off the bat as Evan Still put a long Quan cross right over the top.

     The PK’s were dramatic as Sequim nearly gave it away.  Quan started and made it.  FP converted also, 1-1.  Kyle Schoessler then hit the crossbar (his 1st miss all year) and Mac stopped a FP laser, 1-1.  Evan Still then hit the side post (his first miss all year) and FP converted, 1-2.  Luke Apple then drilled one but FP responded, 2-3.  Cody Sandell then bent some hardware deep in the goal with a rocket and FP went wide with their chance at victory, 3-3.  Servin, after being convinced by his teammates, sent a wicked left footer to the back of the net with added emphasis!  FP also converted, 4-4.  Vann Brasher, who had been unreliable from the mark earlier in the year, made believers out of skeptics with a deceptive strike and a 5-4 lead.  The Cardinals then went home when the crossbar denied them a chance to continue.



Wolves Avenge Only League Loss 2-1

McKenzie Looms Large in PK Win

May 6, 2003


  In a play-off tune up match played at neutral Sumner H.S., Sequim avenged an early season 3-1 loss to Steilacoom with an overtime penalty kick shoot-out win.  The game began with the Wolves giving a clinic on possession soccer with plenty of quality chances.  At one point, a Steilacoom player said “Guys, there passing around us like we’re cones!”  Mario Servin had an apparent goal off a corner kick that was kept out by a well-hidden handball from the near post Steilacoom defender.  Steilacoom was limited to only a few chances, coming mainly on counter attacks that Kyle McKenzie and the Defense had total control of.  Each team had a goal in the second half with Luke Apple getting a pure hussle goal that was classic Apple.  Not to be denied, Luke pushed through the left side and just as everyone thought the keeper would get to it first Apple beat him to it and knocked it into the back of the net.  Steilacoom’s Brandon Beeks tied the game with 10 minutes remaining on a nice 1-2 worked with fellow All-League forward Sean Grisham.

          In the shoot-out, Joe Quan, Apple, Evan Still and Kyle Schoessler all beat Steilacoom’s “All-League” Keeper.  At the other end, McKenzie stuffed Grisham for the second time (Mac stopped a PK of Grisham’s in the first meeting), and midfielder Matt Moulten put his kick wide to give Sequim the well-deserved victory.



Still Goal Beats Eagles in Wind

Klahowya Plays Tough, Wolves Survive in OT

May 3, 2003


 Evan Still finally found the back of the net in double overtime to give Sequim a hard-earned 1-0 victory over a stubborn Klahowya Eagle team.  In windy conditions on the concrete surface of Silverdale Stadium, Cody Sandell sent in a looping free kick from 35 yards out that Luke Apple ran onto.  Apple flicked a head at it and sent it to the far post where Still had set up camp.  Still, snakebit since the Civil War it seemed, neatly drove it home past some big tall Goalkeeper.  Klahowya, in its final home match, played their guts out and outshot the Wolves 20-12.  Aided by the wind in the first half, the Eagles had nice chances in the 15th, 25th and 32nd minute.  Kyle McKenzie snuffed out all the chances and the score lodged at 0-0 at the half.  The Wolves had the 2nd half wind but were unable to close the game out in regulation, setting up Still’s heroics.



Wolves Complete Sweep of Pt. Townsend 3-0

Third Victory Over Redskins

May 1, 2003    


     The 3-0 score wasn't true to the domination that Sequim showed over a game Pt. Townsend team Thursday night.  Pt. Townsend had only a handful of decent opportunities as the Sequim defense led by Bill Stansberry, Per Berg and Joe Quan bottled up All-League Gus Grefthen with a cork.  Cody Sandell opened the scoring with a crafty little chip over "All-League" Keeper Casey Glaubman.  Sequim ended up scoring 7 goals in 2 games on Glaubman, while McKenzie gave up nil.  Hmmm......  Makes you wonder what the other coaches were watching.

     Elliot Watson scored in the second half along with Kyle Schoessler for the Wolves and McKenzie kept the Skins at bay for the victory.


Wolves Lasso Cowboys, 5-1

Corny Headline Way Overdue

April 29, 2003


     Goalkeeper Kyle McKenzie held the Cowboys scoreless for 65 minutes, then scored a goal as a field player with five minutes left as the Wolves dumped Chimacum Tuesday night.  Luke Apple opened the scoring 11 minutes into the game with a breakaway goal after receiving a lovely feed from Cody Sandell.  Sandell added his second assist 6 minutes later when he touched a Joe Quan cross back to Vann Brasher who beat Cowboy keeper Dylan Hendy high and left.

     Mario Servin then went to work befuddling the Chimacum defenders with moves before sending a sweet chip through to a streaking Apple.  Apple made no mistake with the feed and Sequim was up 3-0.  The second half opened with more Wolf pressure and 9 minutes after the whistle, Evan Still found Sandell on the left side.  Sandell finished sharply into the right corner, 4-0.  Brian Lippert replaced McKenzie in goal with 15 minutes to go and was forced to make a couple of sliding saves due to lethargic Sequim defending.  The Cowboys were able to get one back on a nice combination between Josh Brown and Robbie Andrus.  Brown lofted a 35-yard free kick that Andrus ran onto and headed home from the left side of the penalty box.





Bulldogs Throttled 10-0

Nagler, Finitzer Account For 6 Goals

April 24, 2003


     The Wolves scored early and often as Sophomore Casey Nagler scored 4 goals and Matt Finitzer added a pair as Sequim pounded an overwhelmed North Mason side.  Noah Brasher, Luke Apple, Cody Sandell and Joe Quan also added markers.



Schoessler's Pair Lead Sequim Over Redskins

Both Goals Assisted by Brasher in 4-0 Rout of Port Townsend

April 19, 2003


  Kyle Schoessler scored two gems on assists from Vann Brasher as Sequim rolled over a young Pt. Townsend team on the Rainshadow Grounds in Sequim Saturday.  Schoessler, who had to to come off the bench after missing practice "helping his mom clean the house", scored on a lovely one-timer off a cross from the right from Brasher in the 48th minute and again 3 minutes later with a dynamite header off a Brasher corner.  Kyle's mom Teri said, " That little liar, he never helped me one bit with the house work.  But he's not starting anyway so go ahead and don't start him, Dave."

     Luke Apple opened the scoring 4 minutes in after receiving a beautiful feed up the middle from Evan Still.  Apple took the ball at about the 30, bumped hard with Townsend defender Brock Isaac as they ran side by side and Apple let go a low left footer from the 10 into the right corner past Casey Glaubman.

     The Redskins had a chance to pull within 2 in the 62nd minute when Gus Geftlen broke down the left side and let go a bullet that beat Kyle McKenzie to his left.  The ball bounced off the post and was cleared away by Morgan Carl.

     Matt Finitzer finished the scoring with a hard blast from the left in the 72nd minute.  The Finitzer blast completed a darling sequence begining with a lurch up the left from Brian Lippert who touched it in to Carl at the PT 18.  Carl slipped it in to space on the left and Fin ran on to it and left no doubt on the finish.



Seniors Tally All Goals As Sequim Pounds Eagles

Two Late, Great Saves by McKenzie Keep 4-0 Shut-out Intact

April 17, 2003


     Seniors Cody Sandell, Tony Walla, Elliot Watson and Luke Apple scored a goal apiece as Sequim dominated Klahowya 4-0.  After a freak thunder, lightning and rainstorm moved through, the Wolves gave a little thunder and lightning to the young Eagles by pounding goalkeeper Justin Wick with 32 shots.  At one point Klahowya sophomore sweeper Elias Cook shouted "How are we going to mark these guys?" as the Wolves came in waves to the Eagle net.

     Sandell opened the scoring at 26:00 with a low, hard blast from the 20 into the lower left corner.  Set up on a lovely drop from Matt Finitzer, Sandell wasn't to be denied.  Kyle Schoessler started the play with a cross from the right side that Joe Quan neatly dummied and Finitzer was able to spot an unmarked Sandell lurking at the 20.

    The unlikely duo of Bill Stansberry and Tony Walla combined for the second goal right before halftime.  Stansberry took a ball from the right side of his own end and sprinted up the side with it.  Seeing nothing but space, he carried it into Eagle territory.  As defenders converged on him, he fed the ball through to the left as Walla burst through.  Walla finished it past Wick in the lower left corner.

     The 2nd half was more Sequim power as Brian Lippert sent in a cross from the left at 42:00.  Wick got a hand on the cross but Watson was there to poke in the loose ball and Sequim was in control 3-0.  Vann Brasher started the attack that led to the 4th goal, driving the ball up the middle and finding an open Watson on the right.  Watson delivered a peach of a ball through the Klahowya defense to Apple who neatly finished it in the right corner.

     The Wolves then put it in cruise mode and forgot to play good defense.  A long shot from Thoreau Tiknis got redirected in front of the Sequim goal, forcing Kyle McKenzie to make an outstanding reaction save to his right.  3 minutes later a blown clearance from Morgan Carl led to a 1 vs. 1 breakaway from near midfield.  McKenzie sized up the onrushing attacker, came out perfectly and stuffed the ball in his midsection, preserving the shut-out.




Steilacoom Deals First League Defeat to Wolves, 3-1

Great Game Leaves Wolves Licking Wounds

April 15, 2003

     The Steilacoom Sentinels came to Sequim to battle the Wolves in a match-up of Nisqually League undefeateds.  The same two teams were co-Nisqually League Champions last year and both only lost 3 seniors.  Both 5-0 teams were primed and ready to go on a drizzly night in the rainshadow.  From the opening whistle, the game had the intensity of a play-off game. Both teams had chances in the first 20 minutes with the Wolves controlling most of the play.  The Sentinel defense stood tough, blocking shots by Elliot Watson and Vann Brasher.  The Sentinels cracked the ice first when Brandon Beeks broke free down the left side and finished off a weird squirting deflection after Sequim Goalie Kyle McKenzie made the original save.  The Wolves came back with renewed vigor and finally got the equalizer with  3 minutes left in the half.  Brasher's low driving corner kick was mis-played by the defense and snuck in past the near post.  Right before the halftime whistle, Sequim defender Per Berg brought down a Steilacoom attacker in the penalty box and the Sentinels were poised to walk off with a 2-1 halftime lead.  But Kyle Mac came up huge with a lunge to the right stuffing Sophomore sensation Sean Grisham.

     The second half opened with the Wolves sitting back a bit and Grisham made amends for his PK failure with a wonderful streaking header.  The ball was lifted from the right side and Grisham met it in stride and put it past onrushing McKenzie.  Sequim tried to turn it up and had excellent opportunities to tie it from Kyle Schoessler on a diving header, Evan Still and Matt Finitzer on a scramble in front and Brasher on a cross from Berg.  Grisham added his 2nd goal of the night with 2 minutes left when a Sequim clearance got deflected backwards and set him free on the left side and he tucked it past McKenzie.



Rusty Wolves Hang On, Defeat Chimacum 5-2

31 Shots, 5 Goals Against Improved Cowboys

April 10, 2003

  Vann Brasher knocked in 2 second half goals to complete a sloppy victory over a game Chimacum team at HJ Carroll Park Thursday afternoon.  Cody Sandell opened the scoring after many missed opportunities with a nice finish of an Elliot Watson feed.  Evan Still started the play coming up the middle and finding a slashing Watson at the Chimacum 25.  Watson slipped the ball through to Sandell at the 18 who tucked in to Goalie Dylan Hendy's left.

  Chimacum's All-World basketball star Robbie Andrus knotted the score on a wind-aided curling corner kick from the left side that befuddled Sequim's fill-in Goalkeeper Brian Lippert.  Sequim re-gained the lead on a Tony Walla goal.  Walla gathered in a long cross from the right by Sandell at the left side of the penalty area and took it inside.  Unable to get a drop off to an approaching Vann Brasher, Walla shrugged his shoulders and knocked in a right-footed blast.  The Cowboys tied it minutes later as a lofting ball into Sequim's penalty area was unable to be cleared by Bill Stansberry and Joe Quan.  Andrus got inside and poked the lose ball toward goal. Josh Brown gathered in the deflection and pushed it past Lippert.

  The second half was all Sequim as the overmatched Cowboys started to fade.  A sprinting Walla got a head on a wicked cross from Luke Apple 5 minutes in.  Hendy made the initial save, but Vann Brasher was there to knock in the rebound.  Quan led the next charge with a foray down the right side.  Cutting in from the side, he slid the ball across to Brasher who slotted it in the right corner from the 18.  Substitute Casey Nagler finished the scoring after Allen Ohmert blasted a header at Hendy off a Brasher corner.  Nagler cleaned up the rebound and Sequim moved to a 6-1 over-all record, 5-0 in league.


Wolves Go Into Spring Break Atop Nisqually

Eatonville Cruisers Latest Victim 5-1

March 27, 2003

     Four different Wolves plus an Eatonville player scored goals for Sequim as the boys  Soccer team pummeled the Cruisers 5-1.  Heading into Spring break, the Wolves sit atop the Olympic Division of the Nisqually League with a 4-0 record.

     The Cruisers opened the scoring after Elliot Watson failed to clear a ball in the Sequim penalty area.  The resultant deflection ended up on Eatonville's David Hamilton's right boot with an unimpeded track to the goal.  He placed it to Kyle McKenzie's left and into the back of the net and the Cruisers were up 1-0.  Some fans speculated Watson was upset and tried to kick it at an Eatonville player which led to the turn-over.  Anyway, the Wolves had given up their first goal in League play and had to dig out of a hole.  Watching from the press booth, Brian Berg said that for the next 30 minutes the Wolves played, "some of the best soccer I've seen in a while".  Coming in waves and with purpose, Joe Quan received a ball at the Eatonville 30 and cut hard to the goal.  He was laid out by an Eatonville defender as he entered the penalty box and referee Cam Corey pointed to the Spot.  Evan Still converted the PK and the game was knotted 1-1.  Substitute Tony Walla then started a drive up the right side, delivered a give'n'go to Elliot Watson and then nudged it through to a sprinting Luke Apple who buried it.  Cody Sandell started the next attack, delivering an express package to Mario Servin in the left corner.  Servin tracked it down and sent it on to the wild one, Kyle Kautzman.  Wild then settled it, and put a guided roller past the Keeper and barely into the far right corner and the half ended with Sequim up 3-1.

     Matt Finitzer headed in a weird over the shoulder kick from Kautzman 10 minutes into the second half and Sequim led 4-1.  Sequim continued the pressure, outshooting the Cruisers 19-9.  The Wolves had good chances from Vann Brasher, Casey Nagler, Joe Quan and Elliot Watson.  Eatonville tried to head clear a Sequim corner kick late in the game and it ended up in their own goal.  Final, Sequim 5, Eatonville 1.


Foster Falls to Sequim in Penalty Kicks

Rough Play Fails to Derail the Wolves

March 24, 2003

     The Foster Bulldogs nearly toppled the Wolves by tugging, tripping and popping their way into a PK shoot-out at Foster Stadium in Tukwila.  Sequim dominated the game but not the scoreboard, as regulation time ended in a 0-0 tie.  Foster, fielding a multi-ethnic European mix of gritty, experienced players, gave the Wolves a face full of hard-nosed soccer.  Sequim was up to the task and nearly ended it in the 2nd overtime period when a Matt Finitzer cross from the left ended up on Luke Apple's head.  Apple saw nothing but clear net and drove the ball a bit too much right and nearly bent the rght goalpost in half.  The scramble with the rebound was nudged wide by Joe Quan.

     In the shoot-out, Matt Finitzer was first for Sequim.  Unstoppable in practice, Fin put the ball wide right.  Adis Sehovic then buried Foster's first to the left of Keeper Kyle McKenzie, Sequim 0-1.  Evan Still put the Wolves on the scoreboard with a blast that keeper Darko Slugic couldn't contain.  Sasha Alic then drove the ball over the top and things were tied, 1-1.  Cody Sandell mirrored Still with a drive through Slugic, Sequim 2-1.  McKenzie then came up big as Faruk Hajdarevic pounded one that Mac ate up.  An emphatic spike of the stone by McKenzie showed his feelings.  Kyle Schoessler next had the only clean PK bending the left side of the twine, Sequim 3-1.  After Damir Alic put the second Foster PK in, Vann Brasher had a chance to win it and calmly sent the ball to a diving Darko's right.  The Dark one came up with it and the 'Dogs were still alive.  "This one's for you #14" cried Jasmin Kasumovic as he stepped up.  Jasmin sent a rocket into low-orbit that McKenzie may have touched on its collision course with the crossbar.  Kasumovic collapsed to his knees and the Wolf celebration was on.




Wolves Grill Pirates 4-0

Team Treated to BBQ by Humbled Islanders

March 20, 2003


        The Vashon Island Pirates provided a sweet BBQ dinner for the visiting Wolves after being beaten by the Wolves 4-0.  Sequim dominated the game from the start with Cody Sandell getting the first goal at 19:00, volleying in a lofted ball from striker Evan Still.  Still held the ball in the middle at about the 20 yd mark, waited for Sandell to open up, then flipped a little lob that was one-timed into the back of the net.  Vann Brasher got free down the right side 5 minutes later and drove a nice cross through the penalty area that Matt Finitzer caught on the run with a left footed finish.

     The second half saw 2 long range goals from the Wolves.  Tony Walla ran down an errant clear from the Pirates on the left side at about the Vashon 40 yd line.  Noting the keeper was out too far, Walla pushed it forward to the 35 and lit up the sky with a neon laser that only slowed down as it got caught in the back of the net.  Mario Servin worked a little magic 10 minutes later, dribbling the Pirate defenders into shambles, mesmerizing the overmatched keeper, then lofting a 25 yd left footer into the upper left corner. 

     The JV won 3-2 on goals from Casey Nagler, Corey Verdu and Kurt Ludke.




Wolves Dominate Bulldogs 5-0, Move to 2-1

March 18, 2003


        Kyle Kautzman had 2 goals in the 2nd half as the Wolves rolled to a 5-0 win over the North Mason Bulldogs in Belfair Tuesday.  Cody Sandell opened the scoring 10 minutes into the game finishing an excellent cross by Kyle Schoessler.  Luke Apple dummied the cross and Sandell snapped in the marker from about 6 yards out.  Evan Still had the lovliest goal of the night at the 18 minute mark, ripping a 20 yard rocket into the upper left corner after Apple dropped the ball to him from the 18.  North Mason made Sequim Goalkeeper Kyle McKenzie work a bit, firing 6 shots at him in the first half.  The closest came 30 minutes in when a lofted shot from the 25 was pushed off the crossbar by a grumpy McKenzie.  A 2-0 halftime lead wasn't enough for Mac as he chided his teammates for playing a weak 1st half.


     The talk spurred the Wolves to work harder and Apple got his own goal at 51:00 on an assist up the middle from Vann Brasher.  Brasher, who was issued a yellow card later in the half for rough play, did a nice job working with Still, Elliot Watson and Mario Servin controlling the middle.  Kautzman then went to work at 56:00 and 61:00, converting a penalty kick after being hauled down in the box and finishing a breakaway on a feed from Watson.



RoughRiders Rough Up Wolves 2-0

March 17,2003


"I hate PA" was all a disgruntled coach Dave Brasher could say after the Port Angeles Roughrider soccer team had taken another victory away from Sequim at Civic Field Monday night.  A Sequim miscue right before halftime gave PA a 1-0 lead that they would not relinquish.


PA with their patented long ball counter-attack was able to defeat the Wolves despite a strong effort from Oak Table Player of the Match, Joe Quan.  The Wolves are trying a new high volume attack which can lead to counter-attack breakaways by a long-ball oriented team.  Defending with 6 to 9 players, the Roughriders withstood the attack and handed out some nice counterattack meat in the first half.  Kyle McKenzie, Sequim goalkeeper, stuffed PA's Matt Wahto on a breakaway 15 minutes into the game, and bailed the Wolves out a couple other times.  Sequim's central defender Bill Stansberry had a bugger of a time with his footing and found himself staring at a Roughrider backside more than once.


PA's 2nd goal 10 minutes in to the second half came off a cracker of a shot from Swiss exchange student Tobey Halgestond.  McKenzie got a touch on it but not quite enough as it hit the right post and deflected in.  Sequim dominated the last 10 minutes of the game, just missing a Luke Apple breakaway and a Cody Sandell laser off a 25 yd penalty kick.


Wolves Thump Redskins 3-0

  Luke Apple opened the scoring at the 10 minute mark and the Wolves continued the attack for the rest of the game.  The Wolves allowed the young Redskin team 1 shot on goal and that was a penalty kick after Vann Brasher had kicked a PT player in the Wolf penalty box.  The PK sailed wide and the shutout was preserved.  Matt Finitzer and Brasher rounded out the scoring, the later coming when Brasher banked the ball off a Redskin defender into the net.

  Port Townsend was playing without their stand-out goalkeeper, Casey Glaubman, and freshman midfielder Keenan Johns.

What can fans expect from your squad this year?  

    This team will defend the Nisqually League Championship.  The team this year will be attack oriented with non-stop energy.  With 9 returning starters, the major obstacle will be complacency.  The taste of the play-offs last year has the team hungry to go farther.  The bench will be nearly as talented as the starters.  Watson, Brasher, the Scotts, Berg, Carl, Apple, Sandell, Stansberry, Still, Wall and Kautzman played together through the fall and hopefully honed their chemistry.   Lippert, Finitzer, Servin, Schoessler and Kyle McKenzie, took the fall off but are ready to go.  Quan will fit right back in after playing with another team in the fall.   Casey Verdu left for hopefully greener pastures in California and his energy will be missed.  


How will your team do against the rest of the league this year?  Big Rivals?  Key dates in the season?

  After running through the Nisqually League for the first time last year, we know the big games will be Steilacoom and Port Townsend.  April 8 and 15,  Port Townsend and Steilacoom come to Sequim.  There is also the rival game against Port Angeles.  The March 18 opener will be a big measure of where we are.  There are high expectations from myself as well as the players, but we need to work extremely hard to meet those expectations.  The main task is to join the high talent level into a team with the right chemistry.
