King’s win over Lakewood boosts South Whidbey | BOYS SOCCERApril 23rd, 2013 at Tue, 23rd, 2013 at 8:16 am by benwatanabe
A 3-2 win by King’s over Lakewood on Monday may boost South Whidbey from fourth place in Cascade Conference standings to third.
The Falcon boys soccer team narrowly escaped Sultan on the road with a 4-3 victory that apparently required little to no defense for much of the game. Multi goal games in high school soccer are rare, especially where both teams have several scores.
Both South Whidbey and Lakewood are 8-4-0 in Cascade Conference games and 8-4-2 overall. South Whidbey and Lakewood split the season series.
None of it matters for either team’s playoff position, however. South Whidbey is a 1A school and Lakewood is 2A. But the recent loss could bump South Whidbey to third, and even possibly second place in its conference, for its best league record in more than four years.
