He froze out the competition.

William “Mr. Freeze” Davidson has a little bit of Cow Town athletic history to call his own, after being named MVP of the first-ever Coupeville Middle School boys soccer team.

The CMS 8th grader, who anchored the Wolves with his play as the team’s primary goalie, was honored at an awards banquet Wednesday night.

Also receiving awards were Quinten Simpson-Pilgrim (Most Improved), Mikey Robinett (Rookie of the Year), Ryan Blouin (Best Defender), and Andrew Williams (Best Sportsmanship).

The Wolf booters finished 2-8 during their debut season, drilling Granite Falls twice, while fighting strongly against undefeated league champ Lakewood and posh private school Northshore Christian Academy.

Logan Downes led the squad in scoring, rattling home five goals.

William Davidson and Co. have one game left on their schedule, a home bout Wednesday.

It rained all over the world Monday afternoon.

Or at least it seemed that way, as the Coupeville Middle School boys soccer squad escaped drenched Whidbey Island, only to end up in drenched Granite Falls.

With the liquid sunshine coming down in buckets, the Wolf booters found themselves sliding across the field, which made mounting an offensive attack nearly impossible in a 4-0 road loss.

With the defeat, the first-year CMS soccer program slips to 2-7 heading into its season finale at home Wednesday.

Coupeville hosts Northshore Christian Academy in a game set to kick off at 3:30 PM.

The weather forecast currently calls for 55 degrees, partly cloudy, mildly windy, and little to no precipitation.

So, exactly the opposite of Monday’s mess.

“Was a muddy game. Every time someone tried to plant their foot, they would end up on their butt,” said Coupeville coach Reese Cernick. “We took several shots from several players and couldn’t get one in.

“I told the guys to just have fun and play a muddy game.”

The Wolves had rung up wins in both of their previous meetings with the Tigers, but this time Granite was a different team, Cernick said.

“Very proud of the team, they tried hard, but Granite Falls played the best we’ve seen them all season.”

Ryan Blouin unleashes the full fury of his leg.

One game, and a million photos, in the books.

The brand-new Coupeville Middle School boys soccer program kicked off Monday with a home game against Northshore Christian Academy, and plenty of cameras were busy recording the historical moment.

The photos above come from wandering’ paparazzi John Fisken, who strolled in from Oak Harbor.

When you do, if you snap up any snaps, a percentage of each purchase goes to help fund scholarships Fisken doles out to CHS senior student/athletes in the spring. So there’s that.
