Two Falcon boys recorded hat tricks against their island rivals, the Coupeville Wolves, in a non-league soccer game Thursday night.

Playing in Coupeville, South Whidbey took a quick start and rolled to a 9-0 win. Falcon seniors Jeff Meier and Kai da Rosa each scored three goals. Lucas Leiberman, a junior midfielder, scored a pair of goals. Lucas Fulton, a junior reserve forward, scored a goal on a header.

“I could not have been more pleased,” said Falcon co-head coach Emerson “Skip” Robbins. “I think it was the best game I’ve ever seen South Whidbey play in my four years.”

“It was just a beautiful thing to watch. It was soccer the way the game was meant to be played … We’re definitely off to the right start.”

Robbins credited the offense’s speed for creating 39 shots on goal, which he believed may be a school record. More than that, he was thrilled at how the offense worked together to score from different points on the field.

“Other teams might look at Kai and say he scores a lot of goals, but we got a lot of scores from the right mid, the attacking mid,” Robbins said.

“When everything’s clicking and we’ve got everyone involved, it’s a pretty impressive team,” he added.

As has happened in past meetings between the two Whidbey soccer squads, play was at times mired by physicality. Each team had a player issued a yellow card, essentially an official warning by the referee.

“It got a little chippy at times, but you kind of expect it between South Whidbey and Coupeville,” Robbins said.
