WIAA State Soccer at Sparks – State Soccer Bracket

The Puyallup Boys Soccer team finished a great season by winning the 4A STATE SOCCER CHAMPIONSHIP held at Sparks Stadium. In the Friday night semifinal game, the Viks won 4-0 over Jackson. In Saturday’s championship game, PHS went in to halftime trailing Mt. Si 1-0 after some missed opportunities. Coming out in the second half, the Viks tied the game on a goal by Andrew Irby off a deflected ball near the goal. Still tied as the end of regulation neared (about a minute to go!), Mt. Si committed a foul near the goal that gave PHS a free kick and a chance to take the lead, and Logan Oyama delivered with the game winner in the upper right corner. It was an exciting and dramatic finish to the season.

Here are some highlights that were posted online:
