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.

  1. Our fam­i­ly has for many decades expe­ri­enced the best team field sport in the world, soc­cer. As we pre­pare for a high­ly taint­ed World Cup bought and paid for by Qatar this out­come for Orcas and San Juan boys teams is espe­cial­ly pleas­ing. A sea­son of sweat and grass stains, tac­ti­cal coach­ing and play­ers (and their fam­i­lies) work­ing through injuries — not to men­tion head to head games sev­er­al times — this is a sub­lime out­come. A State Championship!!
    I hope for a fan­tas­tic game played in the true spir­it, mutu­al respect and comaradary of the world’s game.
