On Tuesday, May 16, the Boys Varsity Soccer Team continued their successful run with a 3-0 over Hoquiam High School to advance to the 1A State Soccer Quarter Finals.
The pressure was placed on Hoquiam in the opening minutes of the game, as Bush tested their defense in hopes of gaining an early lead. Their efforts paid off only a few minutes later, when central defender Hugo C. took advantage of a well-placed set piece and headed the ball to the far post, past the keeper.
