Issy, Skyline set to meet for regular season soccer title, Suh last left in field for Eagles tennis | Prep sports news

A pair of local teams take the field Thursday with the top spot in the conference on the line, and an Issaquah tennis player is the last local remaining hope for a state berth in the spring.

Issaquah, Skyline meet for KingCo soccer title

A day before the football teams played for a Crown Division title, the girls soccer teams from Issaquah and Skyline met with similar stakes, with the regular season conference title and right to host the tournament title game next week on the line.

Both entered the game, which took place after the Reporter’s deadline, with only a single conference loss on the year. Issaquah was beaten 1-0 by Woodinville in mid-September and the Spartans lost to the Falcons a week later by the same count.

Regardless of the outcome, the two will meet again Oct. 31 in the tournament title game with an automatic state tournament berth on the line.

The winner of next week’s game will be in the field of 16 while the loser will have two more opportunities, first against the survivor of the four remaining 4A KingCo teams and again in the district crossover game against the third place finisher from 4A Wesco Nov. 9.

Issaquah’s Suh last in tennis field

Issaquah’s Jack Suh, playing in the 4A singles bracket, was the last remaining local player in the boys tennis conference tournaments and still alive for a spot in the state tournament May 30 and 31 at Columbia Basin Racquet and Tennis Club in Richland.

Suh was set to meet a player from Garfield in the second-place match, with an automatic state spot on the line, and even with a loss had one more opportunity against the 4A Wesco third place finisher  for the district’s final berth.
