South Whidbey girls soccer drops playoff match

One goal here, one goal there, and South Whidbey could still be playing. The Falcon girls soccer team had its shot of winning a playoff game for the first time in a few years vanish with one goal by the Blaine Borderites on Wednesday.

It was a roller coaster of a week after the Falcons finished their Cascade Conference season with a 1-0 road win over the Granite Falls Tigers on Tuesday. Falcon sophomore Olivia Bolding scored the goal to upset the Tigers (8-6 Cascade Conference; 9-7 overall).

South Whidbey had little rest before facing Blaine (3-5-4 Northwest Conference; 6-7-4 overall). The Borderites eliminated the Falcons with a 1-0 victory and faced the Lynden Christian Lyncs (1-8-3; 3-10-3 overall) on Friday.
