No fear in Falcons ahead of AMHS match | BOYS SOCCER

April 5th, 2013 at Fri, 5th, 2013 at 7:55 am by benwatanabe

A 9-0 drubbing of Sultan gave South Whidbey boys soccer confidence, and lots of it. 

Ahead of a potential first-place match with Cascade Conference power Archbishop Murphy on Friday, the Falcons finally fired on all cylinders Tuesday. It came at the expense of the Sultan Turks, who were depleted because the school was on spring break.

Ben Watanabe / The Record | Stephen Lyons holds up three fingers to the South Whidbey High School grandstand after scoring his third goal against Sultan on April 2.

“I’m confident that if we play as well as played tonight, we will definitely win,” said Falcon senior Stephen Lyons fresh off a hat trick performance against Sultan.

The AMHS Wildcats are undefeated this season through five conference games and seven games overall.

South Whidbey is 3-1-1 in Cascade Conference play and 3-2-1 overall.

South Whidbey travels to Everett to play AMHS at 6 p.m. Friday, April 5.

Reporter for the South Whidbey Record. Currently I cover Langley, South Whidbey Fire/EMS, the South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District, Clinton and sports. On any given night or any given weekday, I'm likely watching a baseball, basketball or football game on TV while reading Mother Jones, Esquire, The New York Times, The Seattle Times, The Daily Herald or scrolling through Twitter. If I can go sailing, I do. Fishing is a recently discovered hobby, but there are few things as exciting as getting a fish on the line and the battle between urgency and patience to haul it in. I don't much care for pets, but probably want to pet your dog or hold your cat.
