Falcons win 5th-straight league match / Soccer

The South Whidbey High School soccer team remained unbeaten in league play and kept Cedar Park Christian winless with a 5-0 win over the visiting Eagles Friday, April 12.

Although the Falcons rolled to a 5-0 win, they did not play their “best game,” according to coach Emerson Robbins, and “and made it more difficult” than it should have been.

Not attacking quickly, which allowed CPC to set its defense, and settling for long shots, plagued the Falcons early, according to Robbins.

Also, the Eagles goalkeeper “did a great job, saving at least three or four normally sure goals,” Robbins added.

South Whidbey did not score until late in the first half when Graham Colar blasted a ball off the far post for a goal.

Ten minutes into the second half, Reilly McVay sent a cross to Michael Lux, who made it 2-0.

Lux tallied the third goal with a header from an accurate corner kick from Thomas Simms.

Colar then added his second goal, set up by Lux’s header from a Cormac Workman throw-in.

Lux finished the scoring and completed a hat trick with a goal off a “slick move,” Robbins said.

The Falcons (5-0, 9-1) face Sultan (1-3, 2-8) at 6 p.m. Friday, April 19, on South Whidbey’s pitch.
