The Bonney Lake Panthers chance to defend its state title came to an end Tuesday.

The Panthers hosted the Ingraham Rams in the first round of the state tournament.

Ingraham beat Bonney Lake 2-1 ending the Panthers chance at back to back state championships.

Bonney Lake’s only score of the game came at the 10-minute mark by Tyler John assisted by Joey Mack.

The Panthers are graduating 12 players this year and assistant coach Randy Jones said they have “had an incredible four year run with Bonney Lake High School.”

Jones credits them with establishing a legacy of winning at the highest levels.

For the past four years, the group of graduating seniors have won three South Puget Sound League championships, two of which included undefeated seasons.

They have also helped the Panthers with three appearances to state and one state championship.

Jones said this group also has the longest winning streak with 18 wins in a row.

“They have set a high standard that all classes following will work towards matching or exceeding,” Jones said. “So although this season may have not ended the way we had hoped, the end of the four years with this group of players is a remarkable four year achievement for our school.”

At halftime, Squalicum led 4-0.

Less than seven minutes into the second half, the Storm scored again taking its lead to 5-0.
