Meier scores four goals in soccer rout

Falcon senior Jeff Meier led the boys soccer team with four goals in a 9-0 win over Cedar Park Christian on Wednesday.

Falcon senior Jeff Meier led the boys soccer team with four goals in a 9-0 win over Cedar Park Christian on Wednesday.

South Whidbey (6-2-0 Cascade Conference, 8-2-0 overall) continued its streak of blowouts after previously winning two matches with a combined score of 21-0.

“We pretty much dominated,” Falcon head coach Emerson “Skip” Robbins.

Citing the synthetic turf of Cedar Park’s Bothell home field, Robbins said the Falcons’ passing and formations worked well on predictable ground. Meier became the team’s leading scorer (17 goals) with his fourth hat trick — scoring at least three goals in a game — of the season.

“It was crazy,” Robbins said. “He just took on the defender and went to goal.”

The Falcons’ previous leading scorer, senior Kai da Rosa, missed his second game in a row due to illness.

Cedar Park (1-7-0 conference, 1-9-0 overall) had little answer for South Whidbey’s fast attacks. Falcon sophomore Justin Gonzalez and junior Lucas Fulton each scored two goals, and junior Lucas Leiberman scored one. Kameron Donohoe, a senior, had three assists.

Playing with limited reserves, South Whidbey made two substitutions at halftime and none the rest of the way as two players were pulled due to injury concerns. Seniors Oliver Saunsaucie and Andy Zisette both missed at least half the match with foot injuries. Robbins said one may be a sprain and the other was a lingering issue.

South Whidbey’s starting goalkeeper, senior Charley Stelling, was pulled in the second half and replaced by Quinn Hassrick, who preserved the shutout.
