Soccer team continues season’s success

The Vashon High School boys’ soccer team continued its successful season last week, traveling to Coupeville High School on Monday and playing Northwest School at home on Friday.

Against Coupeville, Vashon was missing key players due to spring break. Goal scorer Tommy Delargy and key defenders Elliot Eades and Kieran Enzian were on that list of missing players, but that did not stop Vashon from beating Coupeville 3-1. The first Vashon goal was scored after Julian White-Davis stormed down the right wing, sending a lovely ball that would eventually be finished with a header by Sam Briggs. Vashon kept dominating the ball as Coupeville players started getting frustrated about it, and fouls started to come into play.

The focus Vashon had was shown in the second goal. Alden Hinden-Stevenson was taken down by an opposing player, and as that player started arguing with the referee, Alden quickly put the ball into play, passing it to Finley Oswald. Finley took the ball down the field, shooting the ball into the bottom right corner of the goal.

In the second half, Vashon players started getting injured due to the frustration Coupeville players had. Coupeville found the net first, but Vashon scored the third in the dying minutes due to a hand in the penalty box that led to a penalty kick. Oswald stepped up and aimed it toward the bottom left corner. The Pirates proved that they did not have to “hit the weight room” to play soccer as the Coupeville Wolves had claimed.

On Friday, it was time to face Northwest School, a team that tied with Seattle Academy earlier in the season; Vashon lost to Seattle Academy 3-0. Vashon had to prove that they have the potential to compete with Emerald City League teams, and in doing so they tied 0-0. The game was a hard-fought match, but neither squad was able to score. Vashon proved that they could compete with those teams despite missing key players.

Vashon will continue their strong season this Friday, as they will square off against Sultan High School at Vashon High School stadium. The game will begin at 6 p.m.
