Area soccer team wins
Challenge Cup
The local Pacific Premier FC soccer team won the Girls U-13 division of the Washington State Youth Soccer Associations Challenge Cup.
The title came down to a 1-0 decision over Sammamish-based Cascade FC. In the March 2 game, defender Courtney Coombs scored the teams only goal in the 21st minute. It was the final game in a tournament full of 1-0 games in Pacific Premiers favor. Goalkeeper Cassandra Hart gave up just one goal throughout their five-game tournament run.
The Marysville-based team is coached by Todd Wright and Dan Kelley, and composed of 12- and 13-year-olds from Marysville, Lake Stevens, Granite Falls and Mount Vernon.

Marysville AAU competes in
end-of-season tourney
Led by a second-place finish by their eighth-grade team, the Marysville AAU program competed in the Wesco end-of-season tourney Feb. 28 through March 2.
The eighth-graders exceeded their fifth-seed, beating Everett, Jackson and Lake Stevens before meeting Shorecrest in the championship game.
Each of the Marysville squads won at least one game in the double-elimination tournament, with the fifth-graders pulling off a none-too-shabby sixth-place finish, falling in a consolation game to Glacier Peak. The sixth- and seventh-grade teams both finished in 11th.

Cedarcrest, that finished top among the leagues 2A teams, gathered the most kudos with three players and their coach named.
