Wolverines win boys soccer state title

Posted November 19, 2022 at 10:27 pm by

The Fri­day Har­bor High School boys soc­cer team beat Orcas Island High School 2–1 on Sat­ur­day after­noon at Memo­r­i­al Sta­di­um in Ren­ton to cap­ture the North­west Dis­trict 1B/2B state title. The win gives Fri­day Har­bor its first state team title since the Wolver­ines won the vol­ley­ball cham­pi­onship in 1986.

Fri­day Har­bor rebound­ed from a loss against Orcas Island in last year’s state semi-finals to take three of four games against the Vikings in 2022, with one win each in the reg­u­lar sea­son, the bi-dis­trict cham­pi­onship, and now the state championship.

The Wolver­ines blocked traf­fic at the top of the fer­ry land­ing as near­ly a hun­dred cheer­ing San Juan Islanders watched the team raise their cham­pi­onship tro­phy just before 10 p.m. Response vehi­cles from the San Juan Coun­ty Sher­if­f’s Office, San Juan Island Fire and Res­cue, and San Juan Island EMS flashed lights and blast­ed sirens along Front St. The crew of the MV Yaki­ma showed their sup­port with two blasts of the foghorn.

Fri­day Har­bor’s state cham­pi­onship caps off the high school’s fall sports slate. Win­ter sports kick off with boys bas­ket­ball on Nov. 29 at Merid­i­an, girls bas­ket­ball on Dec. 3 at home against Belling­ham, and wrestling on Dec. 8 ver­sus Dar­ring­ton, Gran­ite Falls, and Sultan.
