Spartans roll on to the Final Four | Sumner Girls Soccer
Sumner's girls soccer team made it through a nailbiter against Archbishop Murphy Saturday in the Elite Eight round of the WIAA 2A state soccer tournament.
The Wildcats game was the first one this fall to really give the undefeated Spartans a run for their money. The Archbishop Murphy girls shared the Spartans 14-0-0 season record, though they had lost one off-season game.
The match remained scoreless through the first half, both teams pinballing side-to-side fruitlessly.
Alyssa Murray finally broke the monotony, scoring an unassisted goal in the 47th minute.
The Spartans were able to ride the 1-0 status quo to the end of the match.
Sumner is now in the Final Four. They take on Squalicum, an upcoming underdog making its first playoff run in nine years, Friday night at Shoreline High School. Regardless of the outcome, they will play for their final placing Saturday.
