Vikings deal Lady Falcons a frustrating loss

The last unbeaten team in KingCo 4A has fallen. Led by first half goals by Emma Spencer and Annie Marie Azure, the Inglemoor Vikings knocked off Woodinville 2-1 last Tuesday night at Pop Keeney Stadium. It marked the first loss for the Lady Falcons, whose overall record fell to 8-1 on the season.

“I think that added some pressure, to try to stay perfect,” Woodinville coach Nathan Davis said. “[Inglemoor] came out and wanted it more. They wanted to beat us and take us down. We have a target on our back and we didn’t defend it.”

Hanging from the facade of Skyline’s football stadium are the banners of six state championships won since 2000. And inside that stadium last Friday night, in the immediate aftermath of a football game, the Woodinville Falcons celebrated one of the biggest wins in their own history, after beating the vaunted Spartans 26-23.

“I have played football for ten years and I’ve dreamed of a night like this,” Woodinville defensive lineman Cody Claughton said. “It’s such a thrill tonight to get the victory over the second-ranked team in the state.”

Falcons fight to keep spirits high as losing streak continues

  • Written by Derek Johnson

Last Wednesday night, as I watched Woodinville fall to Seattle Pacific, I thought of former Seahawks coach Chuck Knox.
Back in the 1980s, Knox thrilled the Pacific Northwest with big victories and hard-nosed football. He was tough and old-school, taking over a terrible franchise and building it into a winner. Along the way, he imparted advice to his players with his famous “Knoxisms.”
