Tides turn back West Seattle

By Tim Clinton

West Seattle's ride through the state Class 3A boys soccer tournament came to a screeching halt Friday.
The Wildcats took a 3-1 quarterfinal loss to the Gig Harbor Tides at Seattle Memorial.

They had opened the tournament with a 2-1 win over the Stadium Tigers at Mount Tahoma Tuesday.
Highline and Seattle Christian were also stopped dead in their tracks with quarterfinal losses Friday.

Highline was eliminated with a narrow 2-1 loss to Mountlake Terrace at Highline Memorial.
The same Mountlake Terrace team ousted Tyee three days earlier by a 7-1 score.

Highline was coming off a 4-3 win over Columbia River in Vancouver in its 2A tournament opener.

Seattle Christian was bumped out of the 1A tournament by Bush, 2-0, at French Field in Kent on Friday.
The Warriors won their opener over White Salmon, 1-0, to earn their quarterfinal date.
