Photos and Story by Isabel Herbruger, age 12

The Highline High Pirate Boys Soccer team had an incredible playoff win Tuesday night (May 9) against the Fife Trojans down at Curtis High School in University Place. The Trojans scored early in the second half, taking a 1-0 lead. After two yellow cards were given to the Trojans, a penalty kick let the Pirates tie the game late in the second half. Becuase it was a play-off game, the game could not end in a tie. After two five-minute periods, it was still tied and it came down to penalty kicks.

The teams were evenly matched and played well. Both goalies had a hard time blocking the kicks, but Pirate goalie, senior Kevin Ortega, got one, giving the Pirates the win.

Thank you for your time and consideration,
