The AMHS boys soccer team is on the brink of playing in the state championship for the second year in a row. With a 3-0 win against Aberdeen last night, the boys are set to play in the semi-finals at Sunset Chevrolet Stadium this Friday, May 27, at 6pm.
Last year, AMHS took on Fife for the 2A State Championship and won, 3-0. This year the boys have already claimed the league, district, and academic state titles.
Friday’s win against Aberdeen was led by junior captain and starting forward, Matt Williams. Williams has been the leading scorer for the Wildcats this year and has been recognized as a WIAA Athlete of the week. He plays fast and aggressive, and put the first two goals in the net for the Wildcats (’13 and ’27), assisted by Ryan Henderson and Parker Buchanan. Mitchell Lovell scored the third and final goal of the game with just 10 minutes left in the first half.
Freshman goal keeper Daniel Mycroft had his 16th shutout game. The Wildcats have only allowed 6 goals in total this season.
Their semi-final opponent will be the winner of tonight’s game, Sehome vs Ridgefield.
