After 80 minutes of regulation and two five-minute overtime sessions, the outcome of the Redmond-Issaquah Wes-King 4A girls soccer district title game came down to a penalty kick shootout. Issaquah outscored Redmond 4-2 in the shootout, earning a 1-0 victory on Nov. 1 at Gary Moore Stadium in Issaquah.
Redmond head coach Stacy Masters believes her team will rebound from the loss to Issaquah at the Class 4A state tournament.
“Our team is really confident right now. I think we just showed everyone that we can play all the way to the end of every game. We don’t care who the opponent is,” Masters said. “Just two days ago, we took Jackson who was the No. 1 seed from their division into PKs (penalty kicks) and we beat them. Now we’ve taken the reigning state champions (Issaquah) all the way to the end.”
Redmond players Taylor Pisan and Izzy Bach-Lefler scored a goal apiece in the shootout. Issaquah players scoring goals in the penalty kick shootout were Jaden Humbyrd, Chloe Huling, Sarah Kim and Riley Larson.
The Eagles outshot the Mustangs 7-2 in 80 minutes of regulation.
