The Eastmont Wildcats soccer season came to an end last night in the first round of the State 4A playoffs…
Issaquah dominated Eastmont, scoring 3 first-half goals and adding another in the second half to win 4-nil.
The game was pretty lopsided on the artificial surface at Issaquah High School. The Eagles were obviously comfortable on their home turf with crisp passing, playing most of the game in Eastmont’s end. The Wildcats had one great scoring opportunity in the second half but were called offsides.
Eastmont ends its season with a 13-and-4 record. Issaquah will head for the quarterfinals to face the winner of today’s game between Curtis and Eastlake.
