BAINBRIDGE Island YOUTH SOCCER
Bainbridge Blue 38, Kirkland 12
The Varsity Blue squad traveled to Kirkland Saturday afternoon for their final game of the year and came away with l38-12 victory.
Quarterback Sam Kallas opened the scoring in the first quarter with a 45-yard run on an option play. Fullbacks Tino Peleti and Jackson Larkin soon followed as Bainbridge opened a 24-12 lead at the half.
With the defense dominating the second half of play, Bainbridge pulled away in the third quarter, with Kallas taking a 1-yard plunge after a 70-yard pass completion to Peleti. Running back Matt Stone completed the scoring with a 20-yard run up the middle.
The Blue squad rolled up a total of 169 points this season, nearly matching its output from last year's campaign. Like last year, their point production was a program high.
Skyline White 24, Bainbridge Rookies 7
Playing at Skyline High School in Sammamish on Saturday, neither team had much success moving the ball in the first quarter. Then Skyline’s (5-4) offense took control of the game, scoring four unanswered touchdowns in the second quarter.
The Spartans’ defense effectively shutdown the Skyline rushing attack in the second half, but the point deficit proved to be too much for the offense to overcome.
The BI Rookies finished their season with a 3-5 record.
JV soccer girls lose, tie
The JV girls lost their second game this season to Eastside Catholic 3-2. Both BHS goals were scored out of the back line by Veronica Saez. The team also had its first tie game against Holy Names 1-1. The goal was scored by Courtney O’Dell on a penalty kick.
The season winds down this week with a game away against Blanchett and a game at home on Thursday against Seattle Prep.
