JDHS soccer plays against Seattle talent

The Juneau-Douglas High School boys soccer team traveled to Seattle this week, where they lost the opener of their three game jaunt 0-3 to Issaquah High School on Wednesday night.

“The reason we come on these trips is to play against high-level opponents, and they certainly were an excellent opponent,” JDHS coach Gary Lehnhart said.

Issaquah scored off a second-chance shot 10 minutes into the match. Keeper Hunter Pegues parried the first attempt and an unmarked Issaquah player capitalized with a second shot.

“We had a couple really good chances after that and we didn’t convert them. … Really we should have drawn even,” Lehnhart said.

JJ Mosher had a header blocked and Issaquah countered to score their second goal; before halftime Issaquah got their third goal off a cross and volley.

JDHS played their opponents even in the second half, but couldn’t convert any goals to draw the score closer.

“Second half we made some adjustments, and the good news is we played them even,” Lehnhart said. “We had really good performances from goalkeeper Hunter (Pegues). He did more than his part in the back. Offensively, I thought Corbin Mitchell had the best run in terms of controlling the game from the outside. In the second half, Salar Peirovi and Treyson Ramos came in defensively and locked down their forwards.”

JDHS played Eastlake High School at 6 p.m. Thursday and follows that up with a 5:30 p.m. match tonight against Bothel High School. Follow the Empire at juneauempire.com for game reports.
