Mother Nature is still in charge.

Dropping a mid-November storm on Whidbey Island Monday, she reminded us all of her power.

A semi-truck almost got blown off of Deception Pass Bridge, I lost power for 16.5 hours (the horror, the horror…), and John Fisken waded out into the blusteriness to get the pics seen above and below.

The status quo holds.

Three games, three shutouts Thursday left the North Sound Conference girls soccer standings basically unchanged.

Coupeville fell 5-0 at Cedar Park Christian, while King’s bounced Granite Falls 4-0 and South Whidbey eased past Sultan 2-0.

With six days, and two games per team, left in the regular season, South Whidbey (8-0, 12-0-1) and King’s (7-1, 10-4) are headed towards an Oct. 23 showdown in Shoreline.

With the win Thursday, Cedar Park (4-4, 7-5) eased a game ahead of Granite (3-5, 6-7), while Coupeville (1-7, 1-10-2) and Sultan (1-11-2) remain tied for the league’s fifth, and final playoff spot.

The Wolves travel to South Whidbey Oct. 21, then host Granite Falls Oct. 23, while Sultan hosts King’s, then travels to CPC the same days.

If CHS and the Turks remain knotted, having split their regular season match-ups by 1-0 scores, the two teams meet Oct. 24 in Coupeville to play a tiebreaker to decide who’s playoff-bound and who’s banquet-bound.

Thursday night, the Wolves were buffeted by Cedar Park’s shooters, but also the weather.

“It was a rather windy and wet game,” Coupeville coach Kyle Nelson remarked.

The two schools started the night with a JV game which was regarded as a “friendly” since CPC borrowed the Wolves a few players to make even sides.

While no final score was registered, Coupeville’s Lily Leedy did score a hat trick, rattling home three goals for the Wolves.
