TACOMA WEEKLY 2014 ALL-CITY BOYS SOCCER TEAMS

// AN EXCITING YEAR OF SOCCER IS CAPPED WITH KUDOS FOR THE BEST

It was a successful and bittersweet season for many high school boy’s soccer teams in Tacoma. While four of the six Tacoma schools made the post-season, each squad lost heartbreakers to end its State Tournament hopes.

The 3A Narrows champion Wilson Rams had to win its final game of the regular season to hold off a surging Foss Falcon squad that briefly knocked Wilson out and took over first place just two weeks prior. Mount Tahoma was a thorn in the side of each team it played as the season wore on, keeping scores low with their strong defense and finding just enough offense to earn a district playoff berth.

4A Bellarmine tied in the final game of the season with league-leading Gig Harbor, dashing hopes of a two-seed to the playoffs and instead settling for a four-seed and ultimately a penalty shootout loss at districts. Lincoln and Stadium fought through rebuilding years, but offered-up plenty of excitement and positive prospects for next season.

To celebrate the fine play and exceptional skills of Tacoma’s best soccer this season – the Tacoma Weekly decided to do away with the usual First, Second and Honorable Mention format for the Boys All-City Team. Instead, we created two fictitious soccer all-star clubs and drafted players back-and-forth from a pool of the best talent.

Thus was born the 2014 Boys All-City Teams – the Football Club (FC) of Destiny and the Grit City FC. Seventeen top-notch players per squad and all well-deserving of their spots.
