As the monsoon-like rain pounded the Plateau before Friday night’s Skyline-Issauqah battle for first in the KingCo Crest, weather forecasters called for no relief.
Skyline held what appeared to be a comfortable 3-0 lead over Inglemoor Thursday night, before the Vikings erupted for three second-half scores — all within a 4-minute span — to tie the game. A goal from Emily Anderson in the 70th minute, off an assist from sister Coral, gave the Spartans a 4-3 win.
Issaquah finished second as a team Wednesday afternoon in the Sea-King District golf tournament at Snohomish Golf Course.
The Eagles earned 43 team points, finishing only behind Woodinville (66.5). Skyline grabbed third place with 36 points and Eastlake was fourth with 30.
Issaquah senior quarterback Ryan Bergman had the performance of his career Friday night, passing for 494 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions as the Eagles cruised past Redmond, 40-7.
The unstoppable force that is the Skyline swim team, continued its dominance Tuesday afternoon against Plateau rival Eastlake.
The Spartans improved their dual record to 6-0 beating the Wolves 117-69 at Boehm Pool.
Frustration continued to mount for Issaquah on Friday night.
Four consecutive second-half drives placed the Eagles inside Eastlake’s 30 yard line, and four straight times they were turned away.
