That evenness played out on the pitch again on Tuesday night as top-ranked Issaquah and third-ranked Skyline battled to a 0-0 overtime tie in a KingCo 4A match that would’ve given a winner the inside track to a regular-season conference championship.
Issaquah (9-0-2 overall, 8-0-2 league, 26 points), ranked as nigh as No. 6 nationally in the most recent www.TopDrawerSoccer.com Fall FAB 50 High School Girls Soccer Rankings, fended off an overtime push from the host Spartans in front of crowd of more than 1,000 fans.
“It was just equal,” Issaquah coach Tom Bunnell said after assessing who had better scoring chances. “We missed a couple of opportunities. It was typical Skyline-Issaquah. Both teams played well.
““It’s the classic rivalry. It’s the most real crosstown rivalry. Never coached anything like this. It’s physical. We are so evenly matched. Getting a goal is just so tough.”
Skyline (8-0-3, 8-0-2, 26 points), ranked No. 20 in the same FAB 50 rankings, recorded its eight shutout of the season in conference, and has allowed just two goals in KingCo 4A.
“I think it was pretty even,” Skyline coach Don Braman said. “Nobody could get a clean look at the [goal]. It was really even, hard-tackling game. There were no incredible saves, but there were some good ones.
“For us, we didn’t have a shot we should’ve made. There were no chances either team would lament.”
Issaquah’s Mariah Van Halm got deep in the box in the 70th minute and missed a golden scoring opportunity, but couldn’t get a shot off.
Issaquah defender Kaylene Pang, a University of Washington commit, injured her knee early in the second half and exited the match shortly thereafter.
Skyline defender Mariah Alexander’s header on free kick from Ava Giovanola was wide right in the 38th minute.
The two storied programs, which own eight state titles between them, also played to a scoreless tie on Sept. 15 in the first meeting of the 2016 regular season.
The Spartans twice beat Issaquah last season, but the Eagles went on to claim the program’s fourth state title, beating West Valley of Yakima in the 4A championship 2-1.
Skyline’s most recent 4A state crown came in 2012 with a 1-0 decision over the rival Eagles.
The two teams shared the KingCo 4A regular-season title in 2015. Issaquah last won it outright in 2014 and Skyline has won or shared the conference crown six of the previous eight seasons.
