The Cougars girls soccer team lost to Lake Washington, 5-2, Friday in the 3A state semifinals at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup.
Lake Washington (17-1-1) took a 1-0 lead in the first half on a goal by sophomore Kylie Jones in the 34th minute that held to halftime. Central Kitsap’s Paris Agana tied the match in the 43rd, but two minutes later Alex Mueller of LW scored on a penalty kick for a 2-1 lead. LW’s Jen Estes, a Princeton commit, scored off a cross from Ellie Pedersen in the 58th minute to make it a 3-1 lead for the Kangaroos.
But the Cougars (13-6-3) weren’t done. Central’s Madilynn Wood scored in the 78th minute to cut the lead to 3-2. Lake Washington then added two more goals to seal the win, its fourth coming on a shot by Anna Schwisow in the 79th and Jones in stoppage time.
