Hazen boys soccer lose to Kentwood on April 18 | GALLERY

Lindbergh, Renton and Liberty keep their top 5 ranking in their respective leagues.

The Hazen Highlanders fell to the Kentwood Conquerors Tuesday, April 18 at Renton Memorial Stadium.

The league-leading Conks shutout Hazen.

Kentwood scored two goals in the first half and benefited from a Hazen own goal to go up 3-0.

“I’m scratching my head a little on this one,” Hazen coach Ken Matthews said in a media release following the game.

Hazen out shot Kentwood 12 to six, Matthews said. He added that didn’t count two scores that were taken back both because of an offside penalty against the Highlanders.

Despite the loss, Matthews named Robbie Schroeder as Varsity Man of the Match.

The Highlanders are 5-4-1 in league play and currently sit in fourth place in the North Puget Sound League 4A Cascade division.

Overall, the Highlanders are 7-4-1 with four games remaining in the regular season.

Hazen will host Mount Rainier today, Friday, April 21, at 7:30 p.m.


The Indians hosted Steilacoom Monday and walked away with a tie, 3-3.

Renton is currently fifth in the South Puget Sound League 2A Sound division. The Indians are 4-3-2 in league and 4-4-2 overall with five games left to play.

On Wednesday, April 19, Renton traveled to face River Ridge. That match was played after the press deadline. Next up for the Indians is a home match at 5:30 p.m. today, Friday, April 21 against Eatonville.


The Eagles are leading the SPSL 2A Mountain division with a 8-0-1 league record and a 9-1-1 overall record.

Lindbergh is on a three game winning streak following its 2-0 win Monday over Franklin Pierce.

Five games remain for the Eagles in the regular season. Lindbergh hosted Fife Wednesday, April 19 after the press deadline. Next up for the Eagles is an away match against Evergreen at 5:30 p.m. at Highline Memorial Stadium in Burien.

The team, part of the “Gear to the Max” division championship game, took the tournament title after winning all four games. The Patriots competed against California teams from the cities of Stevenson, Calipatria, and Rancho Mirage, and a Canyon Springs, Nevada team. Players Tyler Anderson and Josh Chung were named for the all-tournament team and senior captain Jeff Yamada was named tournament MVP. Coach Omar Parker said this was due in large part to his defensive efforts during the games. Before this, the team has also won 10 of its last 11 games, including seven games in a row. Once back from the California tournament, the team went on to win against Lake Washington and Bellevue in tough away games, Parker said.
