One day after the Meadowdale Mavericks baseball team ended the season of their counterparts at Lynnwood, the Mavs soccer squad followed suit and eliminated the Royals from further play in 2018.
The Mavericks defeated Lynnwood 4-2 in penalty kicks after the two teams played to a 1-1 draw in their District 1 3A Boys Soccer Tournament loser-out match held Thursday at Shoreline Stadium.
With the loss, the Royals saw their season ended while Meadowdale will get to play on. The Mavs will next face the Squalicum Storm on Saturday, May 12, in the district tourney 3rd place match – the winner of the game will advance to the WIAA 3A State Boys Soccer Tournament later this month.
Thursday’s match was a tight affair as both teams picked up single goals during regular time – Meadowdale got on board first when Inmer Villeda-Guerra scored just before halftime. Lynnwood equalized in the second minute of the second half when Diego Aragon put the ball into the back of the net.
With the match tied at the end of regulation, the teams settled on penalty kicks to decide a victor. Meadowdale was successful with all four of their PK attempts (Momodu Sidibeh, Jacob Potts, Inmer Villeda-Guerra and River Stewart scoring) while the Royals could only convert on one of their three tries. Lynnwood’s Jacob Potts scored on his attempt but Eric Villasenor put his shot wide right and Omar Salcedo had his kick blocked by Meadowdale goalkeeper Ryan Gillis.
The Mavs will have their hands full in the tourney’s third place match against Squalicum on Saturday. The Storm have an overall record of 17-2 this year and averaged more than three goals per match during the regular season.
