The Skyline Spartans have been without one of their top offensive players, and while they haven’t been playing their best soccer, they’ve found ways to win.
Lauren Carson scored the first two goals, and Ke’ala Louie added an insurance goal late in the second half as the visiting Spartans broke away for a 3-0 victory over the Redmond Mustangs Oct. 9 in a Class 4A KingCo Conference match.
In wins over Newport and Redmond last week, the Spartans had to find ways to compensate for the loss of senior forward Amanda Johnston, a University of Washington commit who was injured in a Sept. 30 match at Mount Si.

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.”
