Momentum change boosts South Whidbey in soccer game

Herald staff

LAKEWOOD – A first half shift in momentum helped send Lakewood to its third loss of the season Wednesday as the Cougars fell 4-1 to South Whidbey in a North Cascades 2A girls soccer. game.

“It was just a huge momentum shift,” Lakewood coach Steve Hofmann said. “They scored in bunches.”

The home loss dropped Lakewood to 2-3, while the second-place Falcons improved to 4-1, one game behind idle Meridian.

Senior Ashley Nunley scored two minutes into the first half on a penalty kick to give the Cougars an early 1-0 advantage.

That, however, changed 15 minutes later when Lakewood’s mood-setting pace reversed in South Whidbey’s favor.

The Falcons’ Jaci Gutzmer and Daniel Waterman led a fierce offensive attack, scoring back-to-back goals to give South Whidbey a 2-1 lead.

A misdirected bounce off a Lakewood defender sent the ball into the Cougars’ net for an own goal that boosted South Whidbey’s lead to 3-1 at halftime.

Gutzmer added her second goal of the game in the second half to end the scoring.
