Girls Soccer makes “Final Four” in run for State Championship
Girls soccer had an exciting week to start their run for the state championship. On Wednesday, they traveled to Tahoma high school to play the #4 seed. Emma Hensley was the first to score off a header to her feet from Maggie Dutra. At halftime the score was 1-0, but Tahoma would come out swinging and score a goal of their own to tie the score. Senior Captain, Maggie Dutra, could not be contained and scored the game winning goal allowing the Eagles to move on to the quarterfinals.
The girls hosted #5 seed Curtis High School on Saturday where they battled it out on the pitch in the wind and rain. Curtis was able to sneak in a goal after halftime via a corner kick. Time was ticking down and with minutes left, Riley Cleveland booted the ball towards the goal. Expert header, Abby Cameron, gracefully headed the ball backwards over the hands of the goalie, tying the score and allowing for overtime. Two overtimes later with no additional goals, Curtis and Issaquah would go to a Pk shootout. Maggie Dutra would start the shootout with a goal to the back of the net. Emma Hensley, Abby Cameron, and Kami Novotny would also find the net. Sophomore Keeper, Rooney Strohl, would prove to be the game winning factor by stopping one of Curtis’ PKs. Another Curtis PK would hit the crossbar sealing the win for the Eagles and moving us into the “Final Four”!
Thank you to the fans that came out to support the girls! They made a huge difference. Please make the journey to Sparks Stadium in Puyallup to support the girls once again this Friday, Nov. 17 at 3:00pm as we take on Skyline. You got this, Eagles!
