Cael Wilson brings the thunder.

It’s the big bounce back.

From having the program cancelled, to unexpectedly returning to play, to handing out varsity letters to 14 players, Coupeville High School boys soccer had a topsy-turvy, but successful season.

The reborn Wolves got six games played on the pitch during a pandemic-altered campaign, and head coach Robert Wood acknowledged the effort and grit his players showed while awarding letters.

Senior Sam Wynn was honored with a four-year award for playing every season of his prep career, while Cael Wilson was noted for being the first 8th grader to ever score in a CHS boys soccer game.


Varsity letter winners:

Owen Barenburg
Ryan Blouin
Cameron Epp
Preston Epp
Nathan Ginnings
Nick Guay
Logan Martin
Xavier Murdy

The games almost always end before the photos do.

While the Coupeville High School boys soccer squad wrapped up its pandemic-shortened campaign Saturday, I still have a pile of pics to get out to the world at large.

So, here you go — an assortment of Wolf booters in glossy color, courtesy wanderin’ photo bug John Fisken.

Call it a private school special.

Get to the playoffs, face off with a team you’ve already beaten, and, ta-da, that other squad suddenly has a dominant new player inserted in the lineup.

Maybe us hicks from the sticks living out here in Cow Town are just overly suspicious, but sometimes you wonder…

Anyways, having removed the tin foil hat from my head (for a moment at least), I can report that Cedar Park Christian-Lynnwood, with its new Cristiano Ronaldo-style ringer, capped its boys soccer season Friday with a 5-3 win over visiting Coupeville.

Sam Wynn, the pride of public schools everywhere, banged home a pair of goals for the scrappy Wolves, but when the other team has a guy pegging all his shots from 25+ yards out and recording a hat trick, well…

Still, CHS coach Robert Wood came away from the finale fairly pleased.

“A great game. Tons of fun,” the pitch guru said. “Their guy, who missed our first game, put the ball anywhere he wanted.

“A coast-to-coast dribbler, pretty amazing, but not impossible to defend,” Wood added. “(Our) kids never gave in to them … played strong the ENTIRE game. They just had our number.”

Wynn rattled home his first scores of this pandemic-shortened season, punching home the sixth and seventh goals of his prep career while making his final appearance in a Wolf uniform.

The first came on a penalty kick, while the second sprang from a torrid run upfield.

“Speedy Sam beat the defense several times, and finally went one-on-one with the keeper and buried it,” Wood said.

Coupeville’s other goal came from a star of the future, as freshman Nick Guay “drilled a ball to the upper right corner” for his first high school score.

While the Wolves finished 1-5 on the season, they were young, hungry, and highly-competitive.

Bouncing back after the program was originally shut down due to a lack of sufficient players, they finished the season with 14 players, 12 of whom can return next season.

Wynn and fellow senior defender Owen Barenburg depart, but the players who scored during this campaign included a junior, a sophomore, two freshmen, and an eighth grader.

Xavier Murdy is one of five Wolves who scored this season who can return next year.

It was the big show and a swan song all rolled into one.

Coupeville High School track and field hosted the season-ending Northwest 2B/1B League Championships Saturday, and the event doubled as a Senior Night and a photo extravaganza.

A couple of days down the road, wanderin’ photo whiz kid John Fisken has released his pics from the day, and you can see a collection of them here.

To thoroughly immerse yourself in everything his cameras captured, pop over to:
