State title contenders, neighborhood rivals Issaquah and Skyline play to another tense 0-0 draw

1d2_2948ISSAQUAH, WA— Two of the very best high school soccer programs in Washington are just minutes away from each other. Issaquah and Skyline faced off for the second time this year, and afterwards both clubs were 8-0-2 with the two draws coming against each other.

From The Eastside News:

Picture two elite boxers standing toe to toe in the ring, each throwing uppercuts and repeatedly dodging the opponents’ knockout blows.

It’s an apt metaphor for what has transpired between the Issaquah and Skyline girls soccer teams in two meetings this season.

Eighty minutes of regulation play and 10 minutes of overtime weren’t enough to declare a winner on Tuesday night in Sammamish as the Eagles and Spartans played to a 0-0 tie.

 

It was the same result the teams settled for when they met Sept. 15 in Issaquah and the two scoreless ties represent their only blemishes in Class 4A KingCo Conference matches, as they share first place at 8-0-2, 26 points.
