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.
