SW beats Coupeville, looking to win title outright / Soccer

Forgive the South Whidbey High School soccer team for being greedy.

After winning 8-1 in Coupeville Tuesday, April 23, the Falcons now host King’s in the regular-season finale at 6 p.m. Friday, April 26.

South Whidbey (7-0, 11-1) needs to beat the Knights (6-1, 8-2-1) to win the North Sound Conference championship outright. If King’s wins, then the Falcons will have to share the crown.

Regardless of the outcome of Friday’s match, South Whidbey will be the No. 1 seed from the North Sound Conference into the district tournament and will host the No. 2 team from the Northwest Conference at 6 p.m. Monday, April 29.

South Whidbey 8, Coupeville 1

The Falcons led 5-0 at halftime and withstood a surge by the Wolves early in the second half to claim the island-rivalry win.

Nevin Daniels paced the attack with three goals.

Andrew Curtis opened the scoring with a goal off a penalty kick. Daniels then scored back-to-back goals, the first off an assist from Graham Colar.

Michael Lux, assisted by Eli Waldron, scored with a header to make it 4-0.

Colar tallied off a free kick just before halftime.

Waldron added another assist, this time setting up Aiden O’Brien’s header.

Daniels completed his hat trick by converting a penalty kick after a hand ball.

Colar hit the final goal.
