Cruisers WIN State 2A Championship !
This may have been the BEST championship match ever played in WIAA soccer history. Eatonville started the scoring on a Jenna Samora pass to right side of the East Valley goal that Sarah Schmidt was able to claim as the FIRST goal ever scored by an EHS player in a final match. Ten minutes later at the 27th minute Samora crossed a dead ball that Jenny Baker would head into the Red Devil net to complete the scoring of the first half; EHS outshot East Valley 10-2 in the first half.

The second half WAS WILD! East Valley got a goal nine minutes into the second half that was answered one minute later on a dead ball from Samora, that dropped into the EV area, and finished by Baker. At the 67th minute, EV jumped on a ball that the Cruiser defense hestiataed to clear and brought the game to 3-2. At the 74th minute minute East Valley tied the game on a dead ball BUT that goal was answered in less than a minute on a dead ball from Samora. Jenna launched the ball from the left sideline, it bounce OFF the crossbar, where Baker took the ricochet to score the winning goal and her _9th_ hattrick of the season. The fact that the Cruisers were able to answer two of East Valley's three goals in the game within one minute shows the character of this team. Being relentless and being determined made the difference.

The Cruisers finished their season 20-0; THANKS FOR A TREMENDOUS RIDE!

Seveny-five girls were chosen to the All-American team nation-wide. Baker was Eatonville High School’s leading scorer this past season with 35 goals and 13 assists and helped lead the Cruisers to a 6th place finish in the state playoffs. Jenny has a total of 98 career goals and 49 assists, which leads all Eatonville soccer players. She is also a member of the FC Royals soccer club, who has won five state championships. Jenny is the only girl in Washington state to be awared this honor this year.

Baker Named as an All-American for the Second Year
Jenny was named by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America to the 2005 NSCAA/adidas Girls High School All-American team. Baker is one of eleven players selected this year who is receiveing this honor for the second time. Eighty players have been selected to be All-Americans this year and Baker is the only selection from both Oregon and Washington.

Finishing first appears to be this team's legacy.
    1) 2A State Champion
    2) Only undefeated, untied soccer team in the state

    4) Only team to have an All-American (second year in a row)

Wilson and Baker Named to the All-State 2A Team
Denise Wilson was named to the 2A All-State Honorable Mention Team as a freshman goalkeeper. This is a first - no other freshman has earned this honor of being named to the state team. This is Jenny's second year on the First Team as a forward, and she's the only Eatonville athlete to be selected to the first team two consecutive years for the sport of soccer. According to the press release, girls selected to the all-state team, had to first be named to their respective league's first team, and then voted upon by sports writers around the state. CONGRATULATIONS to both girls and EVERYONE who played this season. Without the hard work of all the girls who played this season, these personal honors would not have occurred.

Cruisers Finish Season 10-3-1
The Cruisers finished their season like they started it - with a shutout win - 6-0. The first twenty minutes of the match Eatonville was unable to find the back of the net, and the Patriots did a good job counter-attacking, but they too had difficulty getting to the Cruiser goal. At the 21st minute Jessica Erickson sent a ball outside of the area to Jenna Samora, that she looped over the GK's head to get the Cruiser offense going. Two minutes later Samora knocked another shoot off the bar that Erickson collected and dumped into the net. Playing her third varsity game, senior,Elysia Collins volleyed in a cross from Sarah Schmidt with a minute to go in the half. Collins has scored one goal in each match she has played this season 3-3!

At halftime the team recognized this year's five seniors: Sarah Schmidt, Anna Culliton, Katy Hoffman, Amanda Guenther, and Elysia Collins. Sarah, Katy, and Anna have played all four years, with Sarah and Anna participating on last year's state championship team. THANK YOU, ladies!

With the resumption of the game, Samora scored at the 52nd minute off a challenge by Anna Culliton and the Patriot GK. Culliton went after a bouncing uncollected ball, the GK went down, and Anna nubbed the ball to Samora for the 4-0 score. Samora got her hat trick goal at the 60th minute from midfield cross by Erickson. This was Jenna's SIXTH hat trick of the season. Brianne Stead finished the scoring at the 70th minute on a give-and-go from Samora to finishe the match at 6-0.

Eatonville wrapped up 2nd place in the Nisqually League. Fife won the league outright and was the only team that the Cruisers were unable to break-down. Congratulations to Fife on a well-played season.

Eatonville will face North Mason on Saturday, November 4 at 11 AM at Franklin Pierce High School. This game will determine the 3rd place seed from WCD III.

Eatonville Gets Back to State Playoffs
Though Eatonville dominated this match statistically it was still close. EHS got on the board in the second minute on a pass from Jessica Erickson to Jenna Samora. Samora took the ball through 3 defenders and scored on the GK. In the 35th minute Taylor Krueger sent a diagonal pass through the area that Erickson latched on to, beat her defender, and left the GK sprawled on the turf for what would be the game winner. North Mason scored their lone goal on a corner kick that wasn't cleared. EHS ended up outshooting North Mason 27- 3.

In the second half, Jenna Samora scored what should have been the third goal off an incredible header off a corner kick from Dani Carlman. The goal was disallowed for "launching" by the ref. No other players were hit or challenged for the ball....?

This game determined that Eatonville would get the 3rd seed from West Central District III to the 2A State Playoffs. For the 8th consecutive year, Eatonville is in the state playoffs!

Eatonville travels to Longview Tuesday to play Mark Morris in the first round of the state playoffs.

Cruisers Continue in the Playoffs
Playing on an immaculate football field turned out well for Eatonville. Being able to control the ball has been a Cruiser trademark, and Tuesday evening that tradition continued. Mark Morris, the number one seed from the Southwest Ddistrict scored the first goal of the match on a throw-in at the top of the area. The Monarch forward touched the ball to the side and fired home an upper-V goal in the 9th minute. It took the Cruisers about five minutes to regain their composure, and then they started to string passes together. At the 31st minute, Camille Walkinshaw sent a pass through to Jenna Samora (who turned 17 this day), where she was taken down in the box and rewarded with a PK. Jenna slotted the ball under the GK as she moved to her left. The half finished tied 1-1.

The Monarchs came out flat in the second half, and Eatonville controlled the play for the first 20 minutes. For the second game in a row Samora had a goal called back in the 44th minute. Eatonville continued to apply pressure throughout the half, until Jessica Erickson took a pass on the left side of the field and sent a diagonal ball through two defenders, that Samora blasted into the net at the 75th minute. The final 5 minutes the Cruisers played defense and were able to hang on for the win. In the final half, Eatonville outshot Mark Morris 8-2.

Eatonville plays the Bellingham Red Raiders on Saturday, November 11 at _3:00_ in Sumner.

Cruisers Finish 4th at State
EHS played a much better match on Saturday than on Friday, but the outcome remained the same - a 2-3 loss. The first 8 minutes of the match EHS controlled most of the play and looked like they would score. Cheney, however, ended up scoring in the 34th minute.

The Cruisers played outstanding soccer, found feet, and kept Cheney under pressure most of the match, but more so the final ten minutes. Cheney scored the first three of the game, but Eatonville responded with two goals in two minutes to get back into the game on the scoreboard. Jenna Samora scored both goals, the first on a PK and the second one minute later on ball over the GK's head, shot from just outside of the area. Eatonville had three good opportunities to tie the game, but Cheney was able to hang on to get the win.

The Cruisers completed the season 13-5-1. Finishing second in league, getting the 3rd place seed from WCDIII, and being the only Nisqually League team to get beyond the first round of the state playoffs. Losing the final two matches is disappointing, but getting to the final four for the second consecutive year, and having so many returning players next year should give everyone something to look forward to.

Cruisers Defeat a Good Klahowya Team
This was an entertaining game. Klahowya scored the first goal of the match in the 33rd minute on a ball crossed in over the GK's head which was finished into the back of the net. The score remained Klahowya 1 EHS 0 until four minutes into the second half. Jessica Erickson fired a shot on goal that richocheted off the near post and onto the foot of Evan Tullis, who tied the game. At the 62nd minute Brianne Stead sent a pass up to Camille Walkinshaw 30 yards out from goal. Camille turned the ball and fired a shot over the Eagle GK for what would be the game winner. With ten minutes left in the match, Dani Carlman found Jessica Erickson the same distance in front of the KHS goal, and she too cracked home a 30 yarder to wrap up the game 3-1.

Cruisers Win in Overtime
This was an entertaining game. The Cruisers played a determined Steilacoom team Thursday night. Jenna Samora started the scoring on an assist from Jessica Erickson at the 5th minute. It looked like EHS would dominate the game, but the Sentinels worked hard and tied the match in the 9th minute. The referee awarded two PK's in the first half, the first collected by Denise Wilson, and the second one shot over the bar. The half ended tied in shots on goal and goals finished.

The second half saw Eatonville play with more desire and outshot SHS 12-4, but neither team was able to score. Eatonville won the game with two minutes to go in the second overtime on a pass in the area from Brianne Stead to Jenna Samora.
