The Bremerton Knights girls soccer team earned a hard fought 3-2 victory against Sequim on Tuesday, with Kelsey Johnson booting the game winner in overtime.

Bremerton broke out to a 2-0 lead in the game, with Jacki Hill’s speed providing the push.

Hill scored the game’s first goal in the 12th minute, out-racing defenders on a fast dribble off the right side, blasting the shot past the goalie from just inside the 18-yard line.

Hill got the assist four minutes later when Sophie Berglund punched in a rebound after Hill’s quickness produced another opportunity.

Sequim kept steady pressure on the rest of the half and managed to tie the score. The team’s played a scoreless second half.

The victory was the second win in a row in Olympic League play for BHS, as the Knights beat Port Townsend 2-0 Sept. 27.

Hill scored both Bremerton goals and Vanessa Friday stepped in for regular goalie Luci Bockelie, who was out ill.

BHS tennis team gives Klahowya doubles trouble

Bremerton’s tennis squad took all four doubles flights in straight sets in a 5-2 team win against Klahowya Wednesday. Rick Villa’s three set, come-from-behind victory at No. 2 singles finished off a fine day.

Villa dropped the first set in his match 3-6, then ground out a 6-4 win before taking total control in a 6-0 deciding set.

An Ho and Eli Olson powered through at first doubles, 6-2, 6-0. Doug Tran and Johnny Olwell had a tougher fight, but won 7-6, 6-3. Ted Copeland and James Hill won 6-3, 6-0 at No. 3 and Cody Fialla and Brandon Deane rolled to a 6-0, 6-1 win.

The team dropped a 2-5 decision last week to Olympic, with the Bremerton lineup a bit scrambled. Copeland and Fialla won at third doubles, 6-1, 6-3, and Deane and Justin Wells pulled out a 6-4, 6-2 victory at the fourth slot.
