Issaquah falls in first round; Skyline headed to quarterfinals in boys soccer | Prep sports news

The Eagles were downed by an overtime penalty kick, while the Spartans are set to head back to the quarterfinals

Issaquah ended the boys soccer season in heartbreaking fashion, falling 1-0 to Gig Harbor on a penalty kick in the waning moments of overtime after the two played to a scoreless tie through regulation.

The Eagles, winners of the school’s first conference soccer title and making only the third trip to state in program history, had a number of scoring chances late in the second half before the Tides were awarded a penalty kick that wound up deciding things in overtime.

Skyline headed to quarters

Skyline advanced to the quarterfinals with a 2-0 win over Puyallup, behind another shutout in goal from Jack O’Keefe.

Armeen Bardi got the Spartans on the board with a second half goal from Nate Hardwick, and Jason Twaddle added the insurance tally on a Sean Curtis assist four minutes later.

The win keeps the season alive for Skyline, the only remaining KingCo team in the field, and sends them to a 7 p.m. May 24 matchup with Snohomish at Veteran’s Memorial Stadium for a spot in the semifinals next week.

The Panthers beat Rogers 2-1 in the first round to earn their quarterfinal spot.

A win means a trip back to Sparks Stadium for a semifinal against either Gig Harbor or Kentwood.
