The South Whidbey soccer team lost to Archbishop Murphy 6-0 on Tuesday. Star Wildcat forward Caroline Brawner scored back-to-back goals two minutes apart within five minutes of the game's start, with assists by Lindsey Bos and Kelly Gould.

The Falcons are 1-5 in league play and 2-5 overall. Murphy remains undefeated at 6-0 and 7-0.

"The girls from Murphy play all year, and if one player gets loose near the goal it can start a chain reaction," said Falcon coach Paul Arand. "Five of their players got loose and we were unable to stop them scoring."

At 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 1 the girls travel to Coupeville for a resumption of classic inter-island rivalry.
