Yesterday the Everett Vikings soccer team played in the divisional 1 playoff game against Loy Norrix. The Everett soccer team was coming off a big win against divisional rivals Holt for the silver cup in the first round of the playoffs.

Winning the silver cup was especially sweet for returning players.

“It was exciting to win two years in a row and to move further in the playoffs,” said senior captain Brett Howe.

Some players like Brett Howe didn’t think the team achieved what they set out to accomplish.

“We were shooting to be in the gold cup,” said Howe.

The first score in the Loy Norrix game did not come until Loy Norrix scored right before the end of a tightly contested first half.

When the second half started the defense was stout again on both sides of the ball, but a late and very lucky shot by Loy Norrix resulted in a final score of 2-0.

Some players thought lack of teamwork was the reason for the loss, others like senior captain Trayvon Rodgers thought it was something else.

”It was like we got intimidated, the first ten minutes of the game we were doing real good then we went downhill from there.”

Like Howe, Rodgers didn’t think the team reached its goal, either.

“We didn’t reach our goal, but we came close. Considering it was more of a rebuilding year for the team, we did pretty good but we should have beaten Loy Norrix,” said senior captain Trayvon Rodgers.
