Get your farewells ready a little quicker.

Senior Night for Coupeville High School girls soccer has been bumped from Oct. 23 to Oct. 16 after East Jefferson cancelled a non-conference game with the Wolves.

That means the finale for seven CHS seniors will come against Sultan, in what will be the last game in a four-game homestand at Mickey Clark Field.

Coupeville’s final two regular-season games are on the road.

East Jefferson, which is the result of Chimacum and Port Townsend combining their sports programs, had to drop the Oct. 23 game to make way for a rescheduled league game.

That clash was originally a victim of Covid.

And the never-ending schedule changes continue to fall like rain drops on a Pacific Northwest afternoon…

Kyle Nelson summed up his day in four words.

Asked how the Coupeville High School girls soccer team had done Saturday, the veteran coach kept his post-game comments crisp and clear.

“Well, not so great.”

Coming off a season-opening home win against league rival La Conner, the Wolves trekked off Whidbey for game two, and found a barrage of goals awaiting them.

Facing off with East Jefferson, the result of Chimacum and Port Townsend combining their sports programs, Coupeville’s booters fell 9-0.

The loss evens the early-season record at 1-1.

The Wolves get right back at it next week, with two games, neither of which are likely to be easy.

Coupeville hits the road Tuesday, Sept. 21 to face defending Northwest 2B/1B League champ Mount Vernon Christian, which was a juggernaut last season.

The Hurricanes have picked right back up where they left off and are 4-0-1 overall, 1-0 in league play this season.

CHS then hosts 1A Granite Falls (2-2-1) Thursday, Sept. 23 in a non-conference tilt.

Covid ain’t got nothin’ on the wind.

The reality of life on an island once again came to the forefront Friday, as an incoming storm killed a planned football game.

Coupeville High School was supposed to travel to Port Townsend for a non-conference game with East Jefferson, but the game was cancelled an hour before the Wolves were set to board the bus.

With several ferry runs between Coupeville and Port Townsend already being cancelled today, the chances of getting to the mainland were limited, and the chances of getting back even slimmer.

A wind advisory, with predictions of winds gusting up to 55 miles per hour, is in effect through 8 PM Friday night.

The game will not be rescheduled.

Instead Coupeville (0-2) moves forward into Northwest 2B/1B League play, hosting La Conner next Friday, Sept. 24.
