For a team trying to integrate so many new players into its lineup – including replacements at goalkeeper and all four defender positions – there were bound to be some early-season bumps for the Skyline Spartans.
But the Spartans showed noticeable improvement between their first and second matches. After dropping a 2-1 decision to Class 1A Seattle Academy in the season opener, Skyline bounced back with a solid, 2-0 victory over plateau rival Eastside Catholic in a nonleague girls soccer contest Sept. 8 at Skyline High School.

Skyline got goals from three of its top offensive players — Lindsey Fujiwara, Amanda Johnston and Kelli Sullivan — to earn a 3-1 win over the Gig Harbor Tides in the match for third and fourth places Nov. 22 at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup.

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.
