South Whidbey goes toe-to-toe with larger foes / Soccer

The South Whidbey High School soccer team held its own against a pair of much larger schools in a jamboree at Kamiak High School Friday, Sept. 6.

The teams played 20-minute games in the tuneup for the regular season.

The 1A Falcon varsity beat 3A Everett 2-1 and tied 4A Kamiak 1-1.

The South Whidbey junior varsity recorded similar results, edging Everett 1-0 and tying Kamiak 2-2.

The varsity goals were scored by Lila McCleary, Mikenna Wicher and Alison Papritz.

Simone White tallied two goals and Leniece Gonzales one for the junior varsity.

“Overall, our teams played well and the players were excited with the prospect of playing strong, competitive teams from the mainland,” South Whidbey coach Terry Swanson said. “Our game fitness needs to improve, which impacts all aspects of our play.”

The Falcons play another big school, 3A Oak Harbor, in the season and home opener at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10.
