KW boys soccer on postseason bubble

The Bear Creek School scored three second-half goals to turn a scoreless halftime tie into a 3-0 victory against King’s West Tuesday.

Dillon Camp (48th minute), Ryan Strandin (62nd) and Jin Ihn (71st) scored for The Bear Creek School (12-2-0 overall, 9-2-0 league).

Three teams from the 2B SeaTac League advance to districts and the Warriors (9-5-0, 6-5-0), trailing Puget Sound Adventist by one-half game for third place, controlled their own destiny entering yesterday’s season finale at home against Rainier Christian. Results were unavailable at press time. The Warriors would secure third place with a victory by virtue of a tiebreaker.

“The top two teams are Bear Creek and Tacoma Baptist. They are both good teams,” coach Jason Meeder said Thursday. “(Bear Creek) should end up in first place and they deserve it. They have played a great season.”

But regardless of whether KW makes the postseason, Meeder is pleased with his team’s performance.

“The hardest thing for me as coach is keeping them motivated when they are down ... But they have been working on that and doing much better,” Meeder said. “My team is my second family and I couldn’t be prouder of all their hard work this year.”

Andy Lee and Josh Kreifels lead the team in goals with 11 and 10, respectively, while Josh Damon leads in assists with nine.

“Andy, Josh, Damon, Chase Estes and Nick Olson are just a few of the guys (who) have been playing great all season,” Meeder said. “The whole team has been giving their all every game.”

Eric Jeong has chipped in with four assists and four assists on the season, while Drew McCullough has two assists.

Lee is the team’s overall point leader with 29. Kreifels is second with 27 total points.
