The Todd Beamer Titans got their first sports victory in the school’s history Monday when the girl’s soccer team downed Port Townsend in a non-league match, 3-2.

“It was nice to start the season off with a win and way cool to get a win on our brand new field,” said coach Carrie Boers.

The Titans got a pair of goals from Courtney Weinman and another from Roberta Drayer to seal the victory. Amanda Claunch assisted on Weinman’s first goal.

The Titans moved to 1-1 on the season with a 4-1 non-league loss to the Auburn Trojans Tuesday afternoon at Auburn Memorial Stadium.

“We had a bit tougher competition at Auburn,” Boers said. “It was the first time the girls played a 4A match and it took a little bit of adjusting to the speed and level of aggressiveness. But the girls really stepped it up and put up a good fight.”

Auburn tallied three goals in the first half and scored their lone goal in the second half on a penalty kick. Weinman scored the Titans only goal of the match.

“For as much as Auburn dominated us, playing in our defensive end we played very strong back there,” Boers said.

The Raiders picked up their first win of the season on Tuesday with a 4-0 shut out of the Kent-Meridian Royals in a non-league match at Federal Way Memorial Stadium.

Jefferson picked up two goals from freshman Melissa Hicks, one from Rachel Maus and one from Michelle Borth.

The Gators lost their opener 1-0 to one of the better teams in the South Puget Sound League North Division at Federal Way Memorial Stadium Tuesday — Kentlake. Kayla Wilson scored in the 20th minute for Kentlake.
