The Whidbey Reign U-18/17 boys soccer team wrapped its undefeated season in the North Puget Sound League with the league championship.

Whidbey’s premier boys soccer team finished 10-0-1 before its final regular season game Sunday at its home field, the Sports Complex on Langley Road.

“They’re really playing some good soccer right now. I’m really proud of what they’ve accomplished,” said Reign head coach Terry Swanson.

During the course of the season, the Reign ruled the field, scoring 47 goals and allowing only eight.

Of the team’s personnel, 20 have played for the South Whidbey High School boys soccer program during the spring.

The Reign will play for the Washington Youth Soccer Founder’s State Cup, likely in January. The team may host two games before playing at the Starfire Complex in Tukwila.
