It’s the beginning of the end.

The Coupeville High School boys soccer team capped its regular season Tuesday with an Island rivalry rumble with South Whidbey, but first took time to honor its three seniors.

Dewitt Cole, Uriah Kastner, and Teo Keilwitz all have at least one more game to play, though, with a home playoff match Apr. 29 against Cedar Park Christian.

Win that one, and they earn at least two more district playoff games.

So, while the final exit can be seen, the road has a few more twists and turns in it before anyone gets there.

You want pretty? Probably should have gone to a different game.

Want a victory, garnered by any means necessary? Then you were at the right stadium.

Playing under the lights Friday night, and missing three starters, including their leading scorer, the Coupeville High School boys soccer squad gutted out a 2-0 win over visiting Sultan.

And, in the end, the W, especially with it coming in a league game, is what mattered most.

“We got a win in a game that was a hard fight, and we were able to take advantage of Mother Nature a bit, so that was good,” said CHS coach Kyle Nelson.

“The guys worked hard and deserved the result.”

The win lifts Coupeville to 1-1 in North Sound Conference play, 3-3 overall.

The Wolves sit in third-place in the five-team league, a game off of King’s (2-0, 3-1-1) and a half-game back of South Whidbey (1-0, 4-0).

Sultan (0-1, 0-5) and Cedar Park Christian (0-2, 0-3) round out the standings.

Friday’s clash, played in a persistent, though not overpowering wind, fell on the chippy side.

Sultan has always been a soccer program which seems to pride itself on being physical, and the Wolves got into mini-scraps with the Turks more than once.

A few yellow cards were waved in the air before the clock ran out Friday, but Coupeville dodged any red cards, while controlling play on both sides of the field.

Starting goaltender Dewitt Cole carried a shutout into the second half, while facing only one truly legitimate shot on goal.

The Wolf defense, anchored by scrappers like James Wood, Teo Keilwitz, and Owen Barenburg, kept the Turks bottled up all night, refusing to give their goalie much to worry about.

Until he came down wrong on his leg after a brief bit of action in front of the net and had to exit the game about 10 minutes into the second half.

With his senior goalie stuck on the bench the rest of the way, Nelson turned to freshman Miles Davidson, who entered the game with PA announcer Eryn Wood giving him a rousing intro.

Once on the field, the man known simply as “Turducken” played lights out, making several scrambling saves and putting in a solid half-hour of scoreless ball.

Coupeville had collected both of its goals in the first half, thanks to Sage Downes and Aram Leyva.

Downes slashed in from the left side five minutes into the game, slapping a ball past Sultan’s flailing goalie for his fourth score of the season.

While that would be the only goal the Wolves would really need, Leyva tacked on a bit of insurance right before the half.

The junior captain was awarded a penalty kick in stoppage time and promptly blew the ball past the over-matched Sultan net-minder, who waved at the orb weakly as it shot past his head doing 75 MPH in a 50 zone.

It was Leyva’s sixth goal of the season, and 25th of his career.

The Turks one really good shot (in an 80-minute game) came 15 minutes in, when a sudden, unexpected hole opened in the Wolf defense.

With the ball on his foot, a Sultan player ripped a liner at Cole, only to see the ball clang off the bar and skitter away.

That was the first, last, and only time the Turks would get a clear look at the net, thanks to a Wolf defense which imposed its will.

With starters Derek Leyva, Xavier Murdy, and Chris Cernick unavailable for duty, Nelson gave quality field time to young guns like Aiden Burdge, Dakota Eck, and Andrew Aparicio, and they all responded strongly.

Friday’s win was the last time Wolf fans will see their team play on its home turf for almost a month.

Coupeville’s next five games, which include four league contests, are on the road, and the Wolves don’t return to Mickey Clark Field until Apr. 19.

It was a long, but successful day.

After pulling out of the Coupeville High School parking lot at 5 AM Saturday, a group of Wolf students went on to tear up the Science Olympiad regional competition.

The Northwest Region event, held at the University of Washington, was a super-sized version, with 39 teams vying for medals and ribbons.

Repping one of the smallest schools in attendance, the Wolves claimed eight top 10 finishes, including a gold medal in “Mission Possible,” and finished 16th overall, narrowly missing out on a trip to state.

The top 13 schools advance to the big (science) dance Apr. 13.

If the event had been broken down by classification, Coupeville would be a regional champ, having finished with the best performance (394 points) of any 1A school.

But it was instead a free-for-all, pitting ginormous 4A schools and prestigious specialty institutions against the scrappy whiz kids from Cow Town.

Seven of the top 15 finishers, including regional champ Bothell, are 4A schools, while three hail from 3A and another three from 2A.

Then there’s Raisbeck Aviation High School, which had teams claim 4th and 6th in the team race.

RAHS is a ritzy aviation and aerospace-themed STEM school in Tukwila, which was tabbed as the #1 school in Washington state by US News & World Report.

To which Coupeville said, “Bring it on!”

CHS senior Teo Keilwitz and junior Anna Dion teamed up to notch the best result, taking home the gold medal for 1st place in “Mission Possible.”


Other Top 10 finishers:

Boomilever (5th) — Jakobi Baumann/Ian Silvester

Forensics (5th) — Dion/Maddy Andrews

Wright Stuff (6th) — Madison Rixe/Ricky Rebischke-Smith

Disease Detectives (7th) — Dion/Andrews

LEAF (8th) — Lily Zustiak/Dion

Fossils (9th) — Baumann/Rixe

Mouse Trap (9th) — Drake Borden/Keilwitz

Football stats are like a giant, shifting sand dune.

As the winds blow through, some piles rise and others fall, and, most times, you can’t totally control where the sand ends up.

Injuries are a killer on the gridiron, and, thanks to various hurts, Wolf stars Hunter Smith, Sean Toomey-Stout and Chris Battaglia have taken a stats hit in the last week or two.

At the same time, their absence has opened the gates for players such as Andrew Martin, Jake Hoagland and Teo Keilwitz, who have all seen their stats rise in the past two weeks.

Through it all, the most consistent weapon has been receiver/defensive back Cameron Toomey-Stout, who has stayed healthy and productive.

The senior standout is now #1 for CHS in six categories — receiving yards, touchdowns, points, all-purpose yards, interceptions (a tie with Smith) and return yards.

The man throwing him the ball, senior quarterback Hunter Downes, is busy making a run at the record books.

Through six games, he’s averaging 182.7 passing yards and 1.8 TD passes a game.

Stay at that pace through the final four contests and Downes would tie Joel Walstad’s single-season TD record (18 in 2014) and just miss Ian Smith’s single-season passing yardage mark (1,848 in 2010).

With 2,937 yards and 29 TD’s for his career, Downes is also closing in on Coupeville’s career records in those categories.

The man he’s chasing, Brad Sherman, the Wolf Offensive Coordinator, finished his run on the gridiron with 3,613 yards and 33 TD’s.

Downes and Co. will kick off the first of three straight home games this Friday, when Bellevue Christian comes to town for Coupeville’s Homecoming game.

Last year, Downes blitzed the Vikings for four scoring strikes, tying the CHS single game record. If history repeats itself, Friday the 13th could be historical.

As you count down the hours until that game, take a gander at the season-to-date stats, as compiled by CHS coaches and posted on MaxPreps.

Keep in mind, though, that when you look at where Wolf players are ranked, it comes with one caveat — not all teams in the state are actively reporting stats.

  Keilwitz saw some varsity action on both sides of the ball during his rookie season.

He’s a star on the rise.

Having made the jump to high school sports this year, Wolf freshman Teo Keilwitz is already starting to make a name for himself.

After playing football in the fall, where he saw some varsity action on both sides of the ball and was a leader for the JV, he’s currently running the pitch with the CHS booters.

A midfielder for the Wolves, he’ll see action today on his birthday when Coupeville hosts Forks in non-conference games (12:30 varsity/2:30 JV).

Of course, Keilwitz is not just an athlete, also bringing big brain power to his role on the school’s always-electrifying Science Olympiad team as well.

A strong mix of book smarts and athletic skills, he seems to have an especially bright future ahead of him.

As he continues to become a vital part of Wolf Nation, we want to take a quick moment to say happy birthday to Teo.

May your day, and the years to come, both at CHS and beyond, be blessed, Mr. Keilwitz.
