Skyline Takes Issaquah for Girls 4A Soccer Title

The Skyline Girls Soccer program scored another state title this year, after sophomore Izzy Marshall scored the sole goal in the team's matchup against Issaquah 15 minutes in.

Issaquah made it to the finals despite a lineup full of injuries, giving the teams, each coached by Mercer Island graduates--Skyline coach Don Braman and Issaquah coach Tom Bunnell--a chance to test their mettle.

Eastside Catholic took a 65-34 victory over Marysville-Pilchuk with amazing plays by running back Henry Jarvis, who rushed for 135 yards in eight carries on Saturday.

After a 12-point start by Roosevelt Friday night, Skyline took command and tied up the game at 14 by the half, pulling ahead to win 54-21 over Roosevelt. Again, a running back, Cedric Cooper, played a key role, rushing 195 yards for four touchdowns during the game.
