The Federal Way Eagles' soccer season ended Saturday afternoon in Vancouver. The Camas Papermakers downed the Eagles in a loser-out, winner-to-state contest at McKenzie Stadium, 2-1.
Camas got goals from Teylen Sheesley and Mika Norrish scored goals for the team that finished second in the Greater St. Helen's League behind Union. The Papermakers will take on Moses Lake in the opening round of the state tournament.
The Eagles (9-3-6) finished in third place in the South Puget Sound League South Division and beat Kentwood, the third-place team from the SPSL North, in a crossover game last week.
Federal Way will bring back plenty of talent next season, led by Gabriela Pelogi. The sophomore led the Eagles with 17 goals and six assists during the season. Also returning will be their second- and third-leading scorers in junior Sydney Slagg (six goals, four assists) and freshman Audrey Shin (four goals, five assists).
But Federal Way will lose ultra-talented goalkeeper Sarah Shimer, along with fellow seniors Bianca Arizpe (five goals), Sierra Howard, Madison Edminston, Sydney Glaser and Ramey Hector.
Shimer will be the biggest loss. She had seven shutouts on the season and will play in the fall at the University of Washington.
