Federal Way earns much-needed win

The Federal Way soccer team is on track this week after picking up two wins in a row.

On Wednesday, Federal Way had no problem dismissing Spanaway Lake with a 3-0 win.

Senior midfielder Kevin Popich scored the first goal off a long throw-in. Federal Way Junior forward Matt Young followed with two goals of his own, all in the first half.

Senior goalkeeper Jackson Dovey played most of the game and shared the shut out with ninth-grader Huie Bryson.

“It wasn’t too tough of a game,” Popich said. “We could have played better. We just want to get some wins. The season didn’t start so well, but if we finish strong we’ll save some pride for us.”

Federal Way followed Wednesday’s win with a 1-0 victory over Emerald Ridge.

Brian Koo scored the lone goal for the Eagles. Dovey earned the shut out. Federal Way is now 3-8 on the season.

“We came out, got a lead and held onto the lead,” Federal Way coach John Heimbigner said. “We just need to finish teams off a little more, which we haven’t done in the past. Our record doesn’t show what our team is all about. We could easily be 5-4 or 6-3. I’m proud of the guys for continuing to play hard.”

Federal Way plays at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Rogers.

Jefferson 2, Rogers 1

Jefferson junior forward Chris Sanders scored with less than a minute left to give the Raiders a 2-1 win over Rogers on Tuesday.

Jefferson sophomore forward Ricky Getchell scored the first goal of the game, but two minutes later, Rogers tied the score on a penalty kick.

Jefferson improved to 6-2-2 and is in third place in the SPSL South.

The Raiders play against Emerald Ridge at 5:30 tonight at Sparks Stadium.
