The boys soccer teams from both Friday Harbor High School and Orcas Island High School won their state semi-final games on Friday afternoon, setting up a Saturday showdown for the state title. The top-seeded Wolverines knocked off fourth-seeded Saint George’s School of Spokane 2–1 in a shootout just a few hours after the third-seeded Vikings beat Mount Vernon Christian 1–0.
Friday Harbor takes on Orcas tomorrow at 3 p.m. at Renton Memorial Stadium. The winner becomes the 1B/2B state champion.
Saturday’s game marks the fourth of the season between the two schools. Friday Harbor beat Orcas 2–1 in a neutral-site shootout on Nov. 7 to win the bi-district championship and advance to state. The Wolverines also lost to the Vikings 3–2 at home on Oct. 11 and won 1–0 at Orcas on Sept. 20.
