“Perhaps, by the time you read the paper, the Bainbridge High School girls’ varsity soccer team will have finally caught a break.The Spartans certainly didn’t get one Monday night against Olympic.Despite matching the visiting 4A squad virtually shot for shot, the Trojans got the last blast – a header goal by Emily Tracy with barely two minutes remaining – to send Bainbridge to its third straight loss by a 3-2 score.The loss obscured how well-played the game was on both ends, however, after the two rivals entered the second half with a scoreless tie. Olympic’s Tiffany Hamre opened the scoring with a breakaway blast past Spartan keeper Lisa Earnest just four minutes into the second period. Bainbridge got the equalizer less than 10 minutes later, however, when junior Courtney McFarlane perfectly placed a long curving pass down the right sideline to freshman Adriana Gonzalez-Medina, who outfoxed her defender and chipped the ball in from short range.Olympic counterpunched once more after another 10-minute interval on the first of Tracy’s two goals, but Bainbridge’s next push into enemy territory resulted in a fabulous crossing pass from junior Fab Rezayat to sophomore Lindsay Carlson, who punched it through in heavy traffic.Bainbridge got a handful of good chances in the final minutes – capped notably by a point-blank boot by Emily Haber that just sailed over the goal – but couldn’t break through.We put up a really good fight in the second half, Bainbridge coach Susan Fowler said. We put some things together.Bainbridge, which played at Port Townsend Tuesday night, next hosts Bremerton in a Thursday contest.Bainbridge JV 5, Olympic 0: The Spartans continued coach Helen Hendrickson’s three-years-and-running undefeated streak behind two goals apiece from Kela Martinez and Kyle McFarlane, and a single score and a assist from Morgan Zajonc. The JV Spartans are now 5-0 on the season. “
