The C-Stangs saved their best game for last. Eastlake gets up early after a mix-up inside the 18 leaves an unmarked Eastlake forward open for an easy goal. However, as the game went on so did the teams confidence which wasn’t easy as they were playing a tough Eastlake team who was previously unbeaten (or tied). Then, mid-way through the second half, # 9 Garrett Price makes a long run to the end line and cuts the ball into the 6 yard box to find #3 Ian Loo who slams the ball into the back of the net. Luke Johnson makes a few (too many) spectacular saves to earn a clean sheet in the second half and the game ends in a 1-1 tie. Although unofficial, Coach Antonio was reportedly seen skipping in the parking lot, unable to control how proud he was of his team’s effort.
The Stangs kept the Inglemoor defense very busy the entire game – with great ball control and skilled passing, the Stangs had multiple close shots on goal in the first half. The first goal came with a great pass from Eshar Kalsi to Alex Mathis who buried it in the back of the goal. Soon after, Inglemoor took advantage of some confusion in front of our goal to get their only goal of the evening. In the second half, the Stangs again dominated the game and had multiple shots on goal. Inglemoor’s frustration started to show, but the Stangs kept their composure and scored 2 more goals. The first second-half goal was a great assist from Will Fitzgerald to Alex Mathis for his second goal of the game. The third goal of the evening was a great cross from Will Fitzgerald to Max Klyuchko.
The Stangs got out to a quick and dominating start against Bothell and never looked back. Ben Rist put away the first of his two goals with a breakaway off a nice assist from Will Fitzgerald. Rist’s second goal was equally spectacular as he dribbled through the Bothell defense and placed the ball in the back of the net. Next, Cameron Pisan saw the keeper off his line and placed a the ball over the keepers head and into the goal. The last of the 4 first half goals came just before the first half whistle with Alex Mathis providing a nice assist to Will Fitzgerald who used his left foot to bury a hard shot into the net. The boys continued to dominate the second half with one goal by Alex Mathis who used a nice cut back to juke the Bothell defender and score the teams 5th and final goal. A shout out to goalies Luke Johnson and Vincent Reitinger and the Stang defense for the clean sheet.
On a cold and windy night at Pop Keeney stadium, the C-team fought both Woodinville and the wind to earn a 2-1 victory. Both of Redmond’s goals came from the foot of Soham Deo. With just 5 minutes left in the first half, Keshav Krishnan passes the ball to Deo for the first goal. But Deo wasn’t done yet, with only a few minutes into the second half he placed a hard shot into the top of the net to put the Stangs up 2-0. Woodinville kept it close with a goal off a corner kick as the result of an unmarked man, which pulled them to within 1. The teams went back and forth, but neither could score and the game ended 2-1.
The Stangs got off to a fast start with two goals early in the game and were able to hold off LW for a 2-1 win. The first goal came from a well-placed shot in the lower left corner of the goal from the 18 by Cameron Pisan. The second goal came off a beautiful cross from Will Fitzgerald to Max Klyuchko who after controlling the ball placed it in the back of the net. The C-team received a significant amount of encouragement from their JV brothers throughout the game which meant we not only won the game on the field but also in the stands – thanks to the JV team for their support.

On Wednesday, Redmond C-Team drew 1-1 vs. Inglemoor.
Redmond starts out the game a bit slow and see’s a familiar possession style from Inglemoor. An early Redmond penalty at the 20 yard line allows Inglemoor to go up 1-0 off a well-placed free kick. Early in the second half, off a beautiful cross from Will Fitzgerald, Max Klyuchko evened the score for the Stangs. The boys never gave up and in the second half, our defense and goal keeper Luke Johnson shut down the Inglemoor attack and our offense had a flurry of chances that we unfortunately weren’t able to convert. The game ends in a 1-1 tie with the Mustangs holding their heads high after a hard fought battle.
Keep up the persistence and heart, young Stangs! We’re proud of you!
In a hard fought game on Monday night against the Lake Washington Kangs, the Stangs found themselves in a hole early 1-0.
