On Tuesday, Oct. 17, the Pirates dominated Port Townsend 10-0 with a pair of hat tricks as juniors Anna Riggs and Dalia Aladin scored three goals apiece. Sophomore Sydnee Adams added two more goals, and sophomore Jenna Harrold added one.

On Thursday night, the team traveled to rival Charles Wright Academy, who they had beaten just two weeks earlier. The game was played in a sloppy downpour and looked as though it would take extra time to be decided. The defense played well, but nothing could be generated on the offensive end for either team. Finally, with 10 minutes remaining, Charles Wright was able to sneak the ball behind the Pirate defense and find the goal. The Pirates fell short 1-0.

The team’s final home game of the season and senior night was played Monday after press time against Bellevue Christian. The girls will begin post-season play this weekend with the district tournament at Fife High School.
