It’s unusual for the Skyline Spartans girls soccer team to be held without a goal in any game, and when it happens twice in a four-match span, it’s definitely a cause for concern.
Skyline lost 1-0 at Woodinville on Sept. 24 and managed a scoreless draw at Inglemoor on Oct. 3. When the team returned to Spartan Stadium to play the Bothell Cougars on Oct. 8, they were hungry to light up the scoreboard.
Thanks to a pair of goals from senior Aleisha Gable, and two assists from senior Jordan Branch, the Spartans did exactly that in thrashing Bothell, 5-0, in Class 4A KingCo Conference action.
“We have two hard games next week,” said Gable, referring to Garfield and Eastlake. “We needed this comeback and to get our energy back up.”
