The Sumner Spartans were the only local school still standing as Washington prep soccer headed into state tournament play.

The Sumner Spartans were the only local school still standing as Washington prep soccer headed into state tournament play.

As a reward, the Spartans earned a long bus ride to Eastern Washington.

The Spartans opened Class 4A state play Tuesday night with a game against the Central Valley Bears of the Greater Spokane League. Results of the first-round, loser-out contest – played on the turf at Spokane Falls Community College – came too late to be included here.

Sumner High had secured a state berth May 11 with a 2-1 victory over Auburn Riverside. That resulted in a seeding game May 13 against Mount Rainier, a contest the Spartans dropped by a 1-0 margin. The split decisions left Sumner as the No 8 seed into state play from the West Central/Southwest District tournament.

Sumner entered state play with a record of 12-4-2 overall. The Spartans placed second in the South Puget Sound League 4A with a mark of 11-3-2.

The Bonney Lake Panthers had advanced to West Central/Southwest District play in the Class 3A division, but failed to make the state field.

Playing May 11 at Ingersoll Stadium in Olympia, the Panthers fell 5-0 to Shelton and saw their season come to a close.

Bonney Lake finished its season with an overall mark of 8-8-1. That included a 7-6-1 record in Pierce County League play, good for fifth place.
