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 wasnt too tough of a game, Popich said. We could have played better. We just want to get some wins. The season didnt start so well, but if we finish strong well save some pride for us.
Federal Way followed Wednesdays 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 havent done in the past. Our record doesnt show what our team is all about. We could easily be 5-4 or 6-3. Im proud of the guys for continuing to play hard.
Federal Way plays at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Rogers.
