The Whidbey Reign U-17 soccer team held off TUSK, a team from the South Seattle areas of Tukwila-Skyway, 1-0 on Sunday in a playoff match.
Whidbey scored in the second half on a goal by Andy Zisette, set up by a pass from Jeffrey Meier.
Reign head coach Terry Swanson credited Tom Swanson, Bryce Auburn, Anders Bergquist, Lochlan Roberts and Davin Kesler for limiting the Tukwila-Skyway team’s shots.
Goalie Charley Stelling made an “incredible” goal, said Swanson, on a shot from 18 yards away.
Swanson also said Whidbey midfielders Lucas Leiberman, Kameron Donohoe, Jordan Henriot and Meier controlled the center of the pitch.
The Reign plays its next game in Shoreline against Seattle United FC at 1:15 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 19. The following week, Whidbey hosts the same Seattle squad at noon at the Sports Complex in Langley.
