Falcons thump Sultan / Soccer

“We got our mojo back.”

So said South Whidbey High School soccer coach Emerson Robbins after the Falcons’ 8-0 win at Sultan Friday, April 20.

The win came on the heels of a lackluster match against Granite Falls earlier in the week. It also clinched the No. 2 seed from the Cascade Conference heading into the District 1 1A tournament.

“For this game, just about every player on our team played a great game,” Robbins said. “Special kudos to Lake Smith, Silas Batiste, Michael Lux and outside back freshman Thomas Simms, who continues to impress all on our team with his smart play and clever moves.”

Lux led the offense with three first-half goals, one off an assist from Reilly McVay. The right-footed McVay’s assist came on “a beautiful left-footed cross,” according to Robbins.

Defender Smith added a pair of scores.

“(It’s) the first time in my 35 years of coaching soccer that I can recall a center back scoring two goals in a game,” Robbins said.

Smith scored the games’s first goal off a nice cross from Batiste on a corner kick. His second score came on a bomb from 50 yards out.

Graham Colar added a goal with an assist from Nevin Daniels.

Ari Rohan scored South Whidbey’s two second-half goals, with assists from Colar and Batiste.

The Falcons (6-4-1, 7-4-2) host Cedarcrest (7-1-2, 8-3-3) at 6 p.m. Friday, April 27, in the final regular-season match. The teams played to a 0-0 tie April 4.
