It was there, then it was gone, but they want to get it back.

Playing on turf in Bothell Tuesday, the Coupeville High School girls soccer squad had a close game slip away, causing the Wolves to fall 3-1 to host Cedar Park Christian.

The loss drops CHS to 1-2 in North Sound Conference play, 1-4-1 overall.

Coupeville came out strongly in the first half, with Genna Wright rifling home a goal to knot things at 1-1 headed into the break.

That tally, her second of the season, moves the Wolf sophomore into a four-way tie with Mallory Kortuem, Avalon Renninger and Lindsey Roberts atop the team scoring chart.

The Wolves scoring touch went cold after halftime, however, while Cedar Park broke through with a go-ahead goal and then an insurance score.

“We just were not able to convert on a number of chances in the second half,” said Coupeville coach Kyle Nelson.

The two teams will clash again Oct. 11 on Whidbey, and Nelson is already looking towards the match-up.

“Should be a good game when we host them later in the season.”

The Wolves, who are in the midst of a four-game road trip, return to action Saturday, when they face Mount Vernon Christian in a non-conference rumble.

After that, seven of the final eight games on the regular-season schedule are league affairs.

Volleyball is crushing it, but football took a big step back.

While the spikers in the North Sound Conference haven’t played a single league match yet — that begins this coming week — the six teams have combined to thrash a variety of outsiders.

Led by Coupeville and South Whidbey, which are the last two NSC fall sports teams still capable of pulling off an unbeaten season, the league’s volleyball squads are a combined 15-4.

That’s a big step up on football, where five of six teams suffered a loss Friday in the third week of non-conference play.

Meanwhile, soccer and tennis are the only sports where conference mates have clashed.

While it’s still (very, very) early, Coupeville and King’s sit atop the pile, with two league wins to their credit.

The Wolves have won a game on both the pitch and the courts, while the Knights don’t play tennis.

Cedar Park Christian and Granite Falls have one league win apiece, while Sultan and South Whidbey are still looking to collect that first W in the first year of the league.

Early results look good.

Having finished the first full week of fall sports, three Coupeville High School varsity squads remain undefeated.

Football, volleyball and boys tennis are all flawless, and while it’s early, the Wolves, and next door neighbor South Whidbey, are setting the pace.

The Falcons are also undefeated in three sports — girls soccer, volleyball and football — meaning Island teams account for six of the nine North Sound Conference programs which can still dream of perfection.

King’s, Sultan and Cedar Park Christian have unblemished volleyball records, while Granite Falls has already been dinged at least once in every sport.

Of course, this is all preamble, as everything played so far has been out of conference.

With one exception.

That was a boys tennis match-up between Coupeville and South Whidbey, which the Wolves claimed in a 3-2 thriller.

As we head into the second week of the season (or week three if you play football), a look at standings through Sept. 9:
