The Vashon High School boys’ soccer team played three games this past week and had their first loss of the season.

The Varsity Pirates started off on Tuesday against rivals Charles Wright Academy. Vashon had a bad start to the game as the Tarriers scored the first goal of the game in the 9th minute. Just three minutes later Charles Wright scored the second of the game giving them the lead 2-0. Vashon adjusted its form as Tommy Delargy ran down the wing and crossed it in for Finley Oswald, who finished with a stunningly powerful shot into the back of the goal. The half ended and Vashon were still losing 2-1.

Vashon and Charles Wright continued to battle during the second half but Vashon striked first as Tommy Delargy once again destroyed the Tarrier defenders down the outside wing and set up Alden Hinden-Stevenson up for an amazing finish. With 10 minutes left in the game CWA received a free kick in their favor in what could be described as a very strange call by the referee that lead to a goal. Feeling the pressure, the Pirates didn’t give up and kept fighting to the end. With two minutes left, Delargy took the ball down the field and into the penalty box and was taken down by a Charles Wright defender which led to a penalty kick for Vashon. The pressure was on Hinden-Stevenson to tie the game up. He slammed the ball into the bottom left corner setting up the tie score of 3-3.

On Thursday, Vashon played returning district champions, Seattle Christian. Seattle Christian scored first from the penalty spot just 3 minutes in. 5 minutes later, Vashon tied the game up with a run down the wing from Tommy Delargy, sending the ball right across the goal where Julian White Davis was to finish it. The game then turned into the Pirates favor, ending the score 6-1. Delargy scored a hatrick and the other goals were scored by Kieran Enzian and Finley Oswald.

On Saturday The Pirates hosted Seattle Academy for a 3-0 loss. It was a hard fought game by the Pirates, but it was not enough to stop Seattle Academy attack. The Pirates had a hard week but are still looking in great form. After their first loss of the season, the Varsity players are looking for a great result at home against Bellevue Christian on Wednesday Night at 4:00 p.m.

The Junior Varsity Squad also had a game last Monday against Charles Wright. Their game ended 1-1 with a goal by Chance Mentink.
