Senior Cooper Thieme's lefty swing supplied some damage at the plate for the Eagles, doubling home a run in the Eagles' three-run fifth and clubbing a 3-run homer in the sixth.

Eagles to battle their way out of loser’s bracket, Saturday ~  The Eagles will have to battle their way out of the loser's bracket after falling to Cascade, 3-1, in Saturday's Wes-King tourney action at Everett Memorial Stadium.

CTEAM  ~  Tuesday 5/2: 4-2 victory over Eastlake. Chandler Tuupo and Nick Imler combined on the mound to contain the Eastlake offense, while an inside the park HR by Henry Hess and two doubles by Steven Moore provided the offense.   The Eagles also took advantage of defensive errors by Eastlake to put the game away. 

Wednesday 5/3: 13-1 loss to Redmond.  Walks and errors proved too much to overcome as the Eagle C-Team season wrapped up on a sour note.

 Win against North Creek, 2-1  ~  The Eagles dominated play and control in the first half and created multiple chances off set pieces and combination plays, but were not able to score.  First half ended 0-0.  The Eagles continue to control the ball and fire off shots early in the second half until 20 minutes into the half when Taiga Crenshaw took a corner kick and Gavin Herman headed it in for goal and the 1-0 lead.  The Jaguars scored the equalizer with 6 minutes left in the match on a penalty kick from an Issaquah foul.  It was 1-1 with 5 minutes left in the match.  The Jaguars had a couple of chances to move ahead from a free kick and corner and the Eagles did too from a yellow card issued to the Jaguars and free kick that went high.  The Eagles scored the go ahead goal with less than 2 minutes left to play when Charlie Buttler took the ball down the left and crossed it into the box and Gavin Herman tapped it in.  Eagles win their first tournament playoff game 2-1.  Next round is a home game on Tuesday, May 7 at 7:00 pm against Skyline.
