The Lindbergh girls soccer team fell 2-1 to Hockinson in the first round of the 2A state tournament Wednesday night.
The Eagles (13-5) got off to a hot start when Elise Aylward hit a cross from the left side that Lindsey Pfluger headed in for a goal less than 30 seconds into the game.
The teams then traded blows and close shots, playing a physical game. Hockinson tied the game about halfway through the second half, then took the lead minutes later.
Lindbergh's season is over after winning a share of the Seamount title and advancing to state for the third time in the past four years.
