After starting the season 10-0 the Peninsula High School boys soccer team has hit a rough patch.
The Seahawks (11-3-0; 9-3-0 3A SPSL) dropped its third match in four games with a 3-2 loss to Auburn on Wednesday.
Peninsula’s past two losses have both come against teams in the bottom half of the league standings (Enumclaw, Auburn) as Auburn Riverside (9-3-1; 9-2-0 3A SPSL) overtook Peninsula for the league’s top spot.
The two teams play each other in what could decide the league title at 7 p.m. Monday at Auburn Riverside.
