North Kitsap girls soccer going strongOctober 2nd, 2013 by jeff graham
North Kitsap soccer coach Chris May is fighting a head cold.
It’s about the only thing May has to complain about these days.
North Kitsap is looking like one of the top Class 2A teams in the state. The Vikings entered Thursday’s game against North Mason in first place in the Olympic League with a 7-0-0 record.
North Kitsap took two out of three points against Kingston last week, winning in a shootout. Besides that, the Vikings have been perfect.
With a roster full of talent, May said it’s difficult for him to decided on a starting 11 every game.
“I haven’t had the same lineup yet,” he said. “We’re pretty much two-deep at every position. I’m really trying to get everybody playing time.”
Offensively, the Vikings have three of the top eight scorers in the league in freshman Briann George (8 goals) and seniors Abbie Wright (6 goals, 2 assists) and Cassie Marcotte (5 goals, 2 assists).
But this is a balanced attack averaging more than three goals a game. In total, 10 Vikings have found the back of the net at least once.
North Kitsap’s defense, meanwhile, has been stingy with Shelby Blevins and Allie Zinn controlling the center and Delaney Lehman, Jenae Arnold and Taylor Vadset patrolling the outside and Maggie Alikpala starting in goal.
The Vikings have allowed only two goals while posting five shutouts.
