May 20, 2014

The Liberty High School boys soccer team’s season came to an abrupt end May 15.

The KingCo regular season champions lost to Mercer Island and Mount Si in the league tournament.

The Patriots fell to the Islanders, 4-2, in the conference championship, before losing to the Wildcats, 1-0, in a loser-out game.

Patriots Tyler Jensen, Tyler Wray and Colton Ronk were named All-League First Team; Quinn Magendanz and Antonio Lago were All-League Second Team; and Michael Duvall, Ryan Graham, Leoul Hancock and Jacob Muttart received Honorable Mentions.
