When Lynden Christian swept past the Friday Harbor Wolverines 7-0 Tuesday, they won themselves a match-up with defending state champions King's later this week.
The Wolverines put the wraps on a hard, sometimes frustrating season.
Friday Harbor started strong, holding the Lyncs to a 0-0 draw for the first 16 minutes, but Lynden Christian was able to score four before the half.
With the game starting in a torrential downpour, the Wolverines nearly scored on several wet-ball chances, but the post kept getting in the way. The second half was more balanced with much of the play in the midfield, but Lynden Christian tallied two more before scoring its last goal with only 30 seconds left.
"It was a long season, but we learned a lot," Coach Andy Duke said later. "It was a season that we asked our seniors — captains Pablo Lopez and Cam Byington — to not only be teammates but also mentors to a group of young players. I'm proud of the job they did."
Friday Harbor ended the season with one win, two ties and nine losses.
