The Sumner High girls defeated Stanwood Tuesday night to advance to the Elite Eight in the Class 3A state soccer tournament.

The game was played at Sunset Chev Stadium in Sumner.

The Spartans gave up an early goal, went scoreless in the first half, but found the net three times to register the 3-1 victory in the opening round of the state tournament. Sumner goals were provided by Jordan Thompson, who scored early in the second half, then Hang Rowen and Jaylin Borden. The game-tying and game-winning goals both came in the final 10 minutes of play.

Sumner next plays Arlington High. That game is slated for 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 14. The winner advances to the 3A’s Final Four; the loser is done for the season.
