On a cold, wet night at Pop Keeney Stadium, the Woodinville Falcons didn’t lose a game. But they lost an opportunity.
Playing a winless Bothell squad, the Falcons took it two overtimes, before settling for a 0-0 draw.
“I thought a lot of us fought real hard the entire time,” Woodinville senior Sebastian Farris said. “We kept a clean sheet and as a defender that’s one of the biggest things for me. Unfortunately we weren’t strong enough on the attack. We didn’t challenge their goalkeeper and defense enough. In the end, we couldn’t get that final goal. And it sucks.”
When the two top teams in the conference get together, sparks are going to fly. That was certainly the case last Wednesday at Hartman Park. The Redmond Mustangs remained unbeaten as they knocked off the Woodinville Falcons 10-4.
Despite the loss, Woodinville took solace that they scored four runs off Redmond ace Kiki Milloy. The previous time they faced Milloy on March 27, they were shut out 2-0.
The closest thing Falcon Field has for a press box is a green shipping container behind the Woodinville dugout. During games the doors are open, giving players and coaches easy access to baseball-related supplies. It basically serves as a shed for the baseball field.
It was in that container that your trusty correspondent spent much of last Thursday’s game. He (and his Nikon) sought refuge there whenever the steady downpour seemed on the verge of morphing into a monsoon.
