Highline Premier Boys 94's Challenge Cup Finalists
As the Boys 94 Blue team wrap up their Highline Premier soccer careers, we want to take a moment to reflect on their experiences. We’ve asked a few of the longtime members to put some thoughts together as the Boys move onward. We are proud to share them with you all.
“What a great finish the ’94 boys had this year – finishing 2nd in the league, winning that PACNorthwest tournament, and being runners-up in the Challenge Cup finals. What a wonderful way to close out their high school club career. It’s been exciting to see the boys develop as players over these years, and to see the team as a whole come together in such a powerful way. It testifies to the great work that Ozzy, Alex and Dan have done with the boys over these years.”
"Many of our boys have been playing together for several years, and have come together as a team to have an amazing end to their premier soccer journey. One of the best highlights from these past years was to see the Highline Premier Boys 94 Blue team win the PACNW Winter Classic after placing second in their fall season."
"It was only fitting that they also went on to be Finalists in the Challenge Cup during their final year. We have been blessed with many outstanding coaches all these years and have appreciated the interest and effort they have placed in our boys. The families and friends we have me mean so much to us."
Thank you Highline Premier Boys 94’s!
Through a hard fought and tense battle against longtime nemesis Snohomish United, the Highline Premier Boys 97 Blue team captured the Virginia Mason Washington State Youth Soccer Challenge Cup Championship Sunday, winning 1-0 on a goal in the first half by forward Johnston Means.
The boys capped a great tournament run of five straight wins with a solid effort for all 80 minutes and into stoppage time, when Snohomish had a late chance on a set piece that sailed just over the crossbar.
In all, the boys only yielded three goals during the entire 6 games of the tournament, including two shutouts in the elimination rounds.
Great work Boys!
