Bellingham 13, Oly-Pen Force 6

After the Oly-Pen Force drew level at 4-4 in the second period, Bellingham United limited them to two goals the rest of the way and exploded for nine goals to pick up their first win of the 2022-2023 season with a 13-6 road victory. Ivan Colin, Kevin Flavin and Ale Tomasi each scored hat tricks for Bellingham.

The Hammers struck first behind Colin’s first goal a little more than a minute into the game. They built a 4-0 lead after the first quarter, but the Force came roaring back in the second quarter behind two goals by Colin Ralston and Jaisen Zurfluh’s first goal, which tied it up at 4-4 with 4:01 left. But Flavin and Tomasi would answer with a pair of goals with less than two minutes left in the quarter to take a 6-4 lead at halftime.

Bellingham then scored five goals at the beginning of the third quarter, including three goals within a minute, to take an 11-4 lead with 10:16 to go in the third and never looked back.

Everett City 8, Oly Town Artesians 6

Peter Kingston scored three times in a seven goal first half for Everett City and then held off an Oly Town Artesians comeback attempt in an 8-6 win on Saturday night in Everett.

Emanuel Vallejo opened the scoring for Everett at the 1:23 mark of the first quarter and they then scored two more times in the final minute including Kingston’s first with 44 seconds left in the quarter. Kasey Sidor made it a 3-1 game with Oly Town’s first goal at the 11:55 mark of the second quarter, but it was Oly’s only offense of the half. Kingston would then complete his hat trick with two goals as Everett rattled off four more goals to make it 7-1 at the half.

The Artesians offense came alive in the second half with five goals in the second half including Sidor’s second and a pair of goals by Alex Vogt, but Cristiano Whitaker’s second goal of the game with 11:15 left to play gave Everett a much needed insurance goal and they held on to hand Oly Town their first loss of the season with an 8-6 win.

Everett City (2-1) goals: Peter Kingston (3), Cristiano Whitaker (2), Johan Espinoza (2), Emanuel Vallejo
Oly Town (3-1) goals: Kasey Sidor (2), Alex Vogt (2), Mitchell Balmer, Jesus Flores
