SLIDESHOW: Tyee comes away from game with some positives, but no soccer victory, losing state opener
By Ed Shepherd
The Tyee mood, overall, was very sad, as, expected, after Wednesday's state-opening loss to Ridgefield.
Some players were crying and others stared into space, while others tried to help teammates' who were fallen on the field following a Totems' season-ending, 4-0, state opening loss at Highline Memorial.
"We had our chances. We just missed. We had 165 passes in the first half, it is what it is," said Seyti Sidibay, whose was referring to a pass, the ball going from one person to another, 165 times to the Spudders' 22 times. Yet the Totems trailed, 1-0, at halftime. More of the same dominating kind of possession of the ball for the Totems in the second half, yet the Totems were scored on three more times in the second half while getting none of their shots to go in.
Despite the Totems' center control of the game, the shots on goal, surprisingly, were very similar, with the Spudders shooting three on goal and the Totems had four. The second half was slightly different, five shots for the Totems and four for the Spudders. The difference in the game, very obvious. The Spudders made their shots on goal count.More ›
