Falcon boys split two in conference soccer

The South Whidbey boys soccer team had a fine 4-1 win over Granite Falls on April 1, but fell 1-0 to Archbishop Murphy on Thursday.

Against the Granite Falls Tigers, Dino Michaelides had three goals for the Falcons, one on a penalty kick, the other two on assists from Ian McCauley. In the closing minutes, forward Henry Mead powered the fourth score in on a single cross kick to the net.

“Keegan Harshman and Ian Marsanyi did a great job for us as goalies,” Falcon coach Joel Gerlach said.

At ATM, the Wildcats could only score once thanks to defensive players Brett Warwick, Landon Moore and Dean Freundlich. But once was enough.

“Even though we lost, I was happy with the level of effort the guys put in,” Gerlach said.
