After losing to Quincy on their home field in a shootout and then winning a game against them in Chelan, the Chelan Soccer Team had to face the Jackrabbits in the semi-final game at Chevy Stadium in Sumner.

The Goats came up short against the Jackrabbits in the semi-final game and then faced Kings High School for  third and fourth place in the tournament. “Both teams battled hard and had plentyu of opportunities to goal,” wrote Assistant Coach Jim Broome. “Unfortunately, the Goats could not find the back of the net and lost to Kings 3-0 and placed fourth in State.

In the final game, Chelan had 23 shots on goal to Kings 29 shots. Miguel Sanchez made 11 saves in goal for Chelan in that final game.

In the Quincy game, the Jackrabbits scored first in the 15th minute of the first half. Juan Garcia tied the game off a corner kick from Cristian Barajas in the 34th minute. Quincy scored in the 59th minute of the second half to take the lead for good.

Chelan had many opportunities to find the back of the net and take control of the game, but was unable to.  Miguel Sanchez was in goal for Chelan and had 8 saves.  Chelan had 14 shots on goal to Quincy’s 21 shots on goal.

Quincy went on to defeat University Prep for the State Championship.

“We would like to say how proud we are of the Chelan Boy’s Soccer team.  We have battled hard the whole season and have overcome a lot to get here.  As a coaching staff we would like to say thank you to the boy’s for giving us their all, everyday of the season.”
