Trailing by a goal late in the second half, the Issaquah High School boys soccer team did a lot of things right in order to tie the game and keep its season alive.
But only six minutes after Mitch Keller scored the equalizer, Redmond’s Keito Suzuki got free behind the Eagles’ defense and scored the 75th-minute winner, giving the visiting Mustangs a 2-1 victory on May 7 in a loser-out game of the Class 4A KingCo Conference tournament at Gary Moore Stadium.

In the end, it didn’t matter that Issaquah High School’s goal was under siege for much of the second half, or that Skyline piled up a 20-6 advantage in shots.
When Issaquah midfielder Mikey Callan pounced on a loose ball in the box and scored in the 25th minute, the Eagles had all the offense they needed to beat the visiting Spartans, 1-0, in Class 4A KingCo Conference boys soccer action on May 1 at Gary Moore Stadium.

Boys soccer players from Issaquah, Liberty and Skyline high schools were named to The Seattle Times’ All-Area team.
Liberty’s Colton Ronk, Skyline’s Jason Twaddle and Issaquah’s Saif Kerawala were all honored.
Ronk, a senior, recorded nine goals and seven assists for Liberty, and was a key reason the Patriots won the KingCo 3A/2A regular-season title for the second straight year. He’ll play at Highline Community College next year.

They were muddled in the middle.
That was the story of the Issaquah High School boys soccer team a year ago.
Turn the page to 2014, and the Eagles are anything but a middling team, at least, so far.
Under the direction of first-year varsity coach Kyle Tatro, Issaquah is trending upward in the KingCo 4A Conference standings. The Eagles are leading the conference at 5-0-0 and are off to an unbeaten 7-0-1 start overall.
