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.

Lopsided victories don’t happen very often for Class 4A KingCo Conference boys soccer teams, so Skyline High School’s blowout of Woodinville on April 21 was a cause for celebration for the Spartans.
Junior forward Matthew Richardson collected his first career hat trick, scoring in the 12th, 24th and 78th minutes as Skyline powered past the visiting Falcons, 5-0.

The scoreless tie that Skyline and Archbishop Murphy recorded in their season-opening boys soccer match March 19 wasn’t indicative of the level of play on the field.
Both teams had goal-scoring chances that weren’t converted, and while host Skyline was disappointed not to win, coach Don Braman and his players also knew they could’ve lost to a talented opponent that has made six straight state-playoff appearances.

The Skyline High School boys soccer team had recently tasted disappointment in the first round of the state tournament, and the Spartans weren’t about to let it happen again.
After suffering their first loss of the season to rival Issaquah in the May 8 KingCo Conference championship game, the Spartans rebounded in a big way.
Armeen Badri and Jason Twaddle netted goals in a four-minute span of the second half, and the Spartans defeated the Puyallup Vikings, 2-0, in the first round of the Class 4A state tournament May 21 at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup.

Matthew Richardson, Jason Twaddle score in Skyline soccer 2-1 win over Wenatchee
Matthew Richardson isn’t tall, but he might have been the biggest player on the field for the Skyline High School last week.
Richardson scored the Spartans’ first goal, then assisted on Jason Twaddle’s tally midway through the second half as Skyline held off the Wenatchee Panthers, 2-1, in a March 18 nonleague boys soccer match at Spartan Stadium.

Boys soccer preview
It might not be realistic for the Skyline High School boys soccer team to repeat their success of 2013, when the Spartans, undefeated in conference, play for the first time.
After all, the Spartans will have to find replacements for several key seniors who graduated, including starting center backs Ryan Shim and Chris Sorenson, and all-state central midfielder Kaleb Strawn.
The Spartans finished 13-3 overall and reached the Class 4A state tournament last season, where they lost 1-0 to Camas in the first round. Head coach Don Braman acknowledges the challenge of finding new stars, but thinks the pieces are in place for similar levels of success.
