North Creek girls soccer ends season at district tourney

Skyline defeated North Creek, 2-0, to end the Jaguars’ season on Nov. 3 in the girls soccer 4A Wes-King District tournament winner-to-state, loser-out match for fifth place.

North Creek, which finished 8-6-2 overall, lost to Jackson, 2-0, on Nov. 1 after reeling off a pair of victories over Inglemoor, 1-0, and Monroe, 2-0, in the tourney.

“I think what made this team so special was that we had our first graduating senior class. Since it was only the second year of the program, I think the girls wanted to build on last year and make this season special for the seniors. As a new coach, I really admired their determination to work hard and make the season memorable,” said North Creek head coach Chalise Baysa.

Against Inglemoor, Jaguar Sarah Kovich scored about 30 minutes into the first half off an assist from senior Audrey Tacey.

In the Monroe game, North Creek scored on a pair of corner kicks: Sheila Koutelieris tallied unassisted, and captain Annika Beck struck the net off an assist from Koutelieris.

On Oct. 27, Inglemoor beat Kamiak, 1-0, and Skyline beat Bothell, 6-1.

In 4A KingCo all-league notes, North Creek’s Baysa was named coach of the year.

Bothell’s Estera Levinte is co-offensive most valuable player and local first-teamers are North Creek’s Antonia Miranda and Kaylin Gaiser and Inglemoor’s Julianna Barker.

Second-teamers are Inglemoor’s Nicole van Engelen and Julia Monson, Bothell’s Kaitlin Bean and North Creek’s Koutelieris.

Honorable mentions are Bothell’s Hailey Zirker, Rachel Madison, Hannah Cecil and Ariana Wilson; North Creek’s Beck, Tacey, Sierra Hein and Maddie Chriest; and Inglemoor’s Paris Moore, Kaycie Suzuki, Ashly Berge and Joie Christensen.
