The Sideline

Tigers, Rams, T-Birds headed to soccer districts

The Narrows 3A and 4A boys soccer regular seasons came to a close last night, with a wild shakeup in the 3A ranks highlighting the night’s action.

Wilson fought to a 3-3 draw with Shelton at Stadium bowl, earning the Rams the outright title in the Narrows 3A as they finished one point ahead of a trio of squads. The Rams earned the top seed to district play, where they will face off against the fourth seed from the Seamount/SPSL sub-district tournament on Saturday at 6 p.m. at Auburn Memorial Stadium. Their opponent will be the loser between Auburn Mountainview and Hazen, a match that will take place tonight at 7 p.m. at Renton Memorial Stadium.

With a 2-1 win at North Thurston last night – plus a combination of other factors – Mount Tahoma shot up to claim second place in the Narrows 3A last night. The Thunderbirds tied with Shelton and North Thurston with 22 overall points in the standings, but owned the tie breakers against both schools. With that, the Thunderbirds will be playing at 11 a.m. on Saturday at Highline Memorial Stadium against the loser of the match between Enumclaw and Bonney Lake. That match will take place tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Franklin Pierce High School.

Foss was squeezed out of the playoff picture last night, as they suffered a 3-2 upset loss at Lincoln to fall just short.

Stadium, meanwhile, fell 3-1 at Central Kitsap last night to see the Cougars overtake them for the Narrows 4A title by one point in the standings. With that, the Tigers will take the second seed to the district playoffs, where they will take on the seventh seed from the SPSL at noon on Saturday at Mount Tahoma Stadium. Their opponent will be the winner between Emerald Ridge and Auburn Riverside, a match that will take place at 6 p.m. on Thursday at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup.
