Bucs advance to State | Girls soccer

KINGSTON — A goal in the 16th minute of the District tournament was all the Kingston Buccaneers needed to earn a berth to State.

Katie Keller scored on a pass from Kelly Nash against the Lindbergh Eagles, Nov. 9 at Renton Memorial Stadium. The Bucs were able to hold the Eagles off the rest of the game for a trip to the 2A State tournament.

Kingston head coach Craig Smith said the Bucs took nine shots on goal, to the Eagles' two. The Eagles lost a strong forward in the first half to a knee injury. Another Lindbergh player received a red card late in the game.

The Bucs are preparing to play Archbishop Murphy in the first round of the State tournament; the date, time and location has not been determined.

The Bucs took third in the District tournament. Cross-town rivals North Kitsap Vikings were eliminated by Fife Nov. 9.
