Washington Youth Soccer Founders Cup - State Tournament 2019

Bainbridge Island FC were able to boast 9 teams heading into the WYS Founders Finals weekend at Starfire Sports, Tukwila, WA. The tournament features teams from all over Washington as part of this post season State tournament event. At this stage of the tournament all of the remaining teams feature quality players and it is a great testament to our club's girls & boys from our program that all our games were great games and featuring some super performances.

B05 Blue brought that State Championship winning feeling for Bainbridge Island FC as they came out of the weekend as Washington State Champions. In an inspirational weekend the boys teamwork was on show throughout.

In the semi final they took down #1 ranked Colibri from Tacoma 3-2 in a pulsating game that BIFC just would not be denied in. A resilient performance from the defense was ably supported by goals from Hudson Reynolds, Finn McCallum and Avery Decker to ensure their progress to "Finals Sunday". On Sunday they returned to dominate again and complete the job as they saw off Seattle United B05 Blue in a 2-0 win with goals from Saatje Stevens and Hudson Reynolds.

Coach Phil Avison said after the game "through all this time the boys have worked so hard at practice, to be better, both technical and tactically. All those incremental pieces add up, and allow us to have the qualities to be successful. Entwined with this, and really important to me and our club, these boys exhibit things in the right way to represent our club. The pride, passion, work ethic, team work, respect, integrity and sportsmanship runs through all they do. It is a pretty inspiring thing".

G05 Blue won a tight semi final against NSC Green with two goals from Avery Pujolar in a 2-1 win that ensured them a passage to the final against HSA Select G05. The Sunday final brought another tight game with closely matched teams. A final with both sides aspiring for that one goal that could prove to be the difference to the championship. Unfortunately, from their one shot of the game HSA were able to get the goal in the second half that would separate the sides, and leave BIFC on the wrong side of the 0-1 final scoreline.

B04 Blue won exceedingly convincingly in the semi final against Seattle United West B04 Blue 5-0 to ensure their progress to the Founders Cup final to meet HSC Rebano on Sunday. Earlier in the season BIFC played an 11 goal thriller against this opponent in a 6-5 scoreline, so everyone knew this was going to be an exciting final. That, it proved to be, as BIFC twice came from behind with goals from Damoni Mckenna-Greenawalt to tie the game up at 2-2 heading into the final quarter of the game. HSC, with their free scoring offensive kept on trying to score, and got that go ahead goal with less than 10 minutes to go. As much as Bainbridge pushed for it, that 3rd equalizer did not come. A super performance form the boys ended with a BIFC 2-3 loss to HSA from Highline. Coach Ben Campbell commented after the game how immensely proud of the team effort and collective performance from the BIFC B04 boys.

G08 Blue tied their game 1-1 with Seattle United G08 Blue, with the BIFC goal coming from Maggie Dunstan in the 1st half. Seattle United came back strong in the 2nd half and way able to force an equalizer to tie the game up at 1-1. Seattle United is an opponent who the girls have been a close match up with all year long, and the teams could not be serrated by 60 minutes of regular time, and 20 further minutes of overtime.The penalty shootout was an equally tense tight affair, but one were Bainbridge were edged out of as Seattle United triumphed 3-2 in penalty kicks.

B08 White a similar tale happened with our boys under 11's who dominated their semi final game against Whatcom Rangers from Bellingham. Despite giving up and early goal to Whatcom, BIFC dominated the flow of the game. They were able to find the equalizing goal, but that winning goal would not come. The game went into overtime, but still the two teams could still not be separated. The game went to shootout were Bainbridge could not quite convert enough to make the final on Sunday.

B06 Blue after a dominating year were the B06 Blue team boys have taken on and beaten all before them, so they headed into final weekend in confident mood, but knowing some tough challenges lay ahead with the top three team in the tournament all making semi finals. BIFC came up against a long time adversary in NSC B06 Green who are the current State Champions. BIFC came close to going in front by hitting the post through Tomas Henao, and crossbar from Enrique Aquillar, but they could not quite find that goal in a nip and tuck game that flowed from end to end in the 1st half. It was NSC who gained the go ahead goal to see the score 0-1 at half time.

Despite the constant pressure to the NSC goal the boys from Bainbridge in the 2nd half they were not able to find that equalizing goal to tie up the game, and lost 0-1 in the semi final to the eventual champions NSC B06 Green.

For B07 Blue it was an agonizing loss for the boys as they lost 2-1 to Kent United with the last kick of the game. A hard fought game against Kent United B07 Green kept the semi final match tight as both sides aspired to make that Founders Cup final. BIFC coach Ethan Tait was very optimistic about B07 Blue potential success as they had show great skill and quality through bracket play to reach this semi final stage.

Some superb goalkeeping from Oliver Morrison and Ciaran McCann in goal for Bainbridge kept the semi final with just one goal each way, the BIFC goal coming from Thacher Cloke off a corner by Cruzan Piland. Meaning that the game headed into overtime 1-1, and it seemed destined for a shootout, before a last gasp breakaway goal from the Kent United forward which saw them steal out to win with the last kick of the match. It was a bit of a heartbreaker for coach Ethan Tati and the boys, but they can be justifiably proud of an excellent performance in Founders Cup.

G06 Blue played the first game of the day for BIFC in an early start at Starfire Sports in Tukwila. Yet another tight game against Seattle United. The first goal went the way of the opponents after a disputed twice taken free kick saw the ball hit the back of the next for Seattle to lead. The G06's for back strong and were able to tie the game with a goal from Emma Allen after great work by Emma Kilby, as they began to believe the game was going to fall their way. Through regulation and overtime BIFC could not quite steal a march to get that go ahead goal, and headed into a penalty shoot-out.

Sophia Wilson came up big with some shootouts saves, but BIFC could not quite convert enough of their own and lost 2-3 in kicks from the mark.

G07 Blue on Saturday afternoon took on Crossfire G07 Black in the Founders Cup semi final. After two wins and a tie in bracket play the girls were in good form heading to the semi final game. The girls played a strong Crossfire G07 team well, but could not quite win their semi final as they lost 1-2 in another close game with the Bainbridge goal coming from Izzi Pujolar from an assist by Arden Del Lanoy. The girls played a tremendous post season run under the coaching guidance of John Del Lanoy.
