Last Tuesday, Oct. 22, the Vashon Girls’ soccer team played against their rival, the Vikings of Bellevue Christian. The first match resulted in a 4-0 Pirate victory.

The Pirates were looking to earn a sweep of the Vikings for the first time in over four years. The game started out with the Pirates dominating possession and controlling play with passing connections in the midfield and strong support from the backline. Midway through the first half, the Vikings equaled the balance of possession. Late in the first half, the Pirates got on the board when a shot from Payton Venturi found the back of the net, giving the Pirates a 1-0 lead heading into the half.

Midway through the second half, senior Sydnee Adams took a pass from Corrine Ryan, made a move on the Viking defense and buried a shot from 25 yards just over the reach of the Viking keeper to increase the Pirate lead to 2-0. With six minutes remaining, Pirate goalkeeper Tamsen Henry dove for a loose ball at the top of the box and took a cleat to the head. After an injury delay, she was replaced in goal by Adams.

Play resumed and the Vikings were able to get on the board with a few minutes remaining to bring the final score to a 2-1 Pirate victory.
