Deception FC captures Federation Cup / Youth soccer

The Whidbey Island Deception FC girls U13 soccer team finished first in the Washington Federation Cup earlier this month.

The Federation Cup “is the biggest state tournament for the level of play in which our girls compete,” according to coach Sean LeVine.

The month-long tournament ended Feb. 2 when the Whidbey team beat Puyallup’s Rainier Soccer Alliance Elite 2-1 in the championship match at the Starfire Soccer Complex in Tukwila.

Addison Boyer notched both goals for the winners.

“Our girls played extremely tough and never let up,” LeVine said. “Our only goal keeper, Audrey Hart, made several big saves throughout the tournament. Every single player on the team had big contributions to our success.”

Deception FC reached the title bout when Ava Shoosmith chipped in a late goal in a 1-0 semifinal win over North Shore.

The Whidbey club defeated Cascade, Highline and Bellevue in bracket play, then upended Bainbridge Island 3-1 in the quarterfinals.

Boyer, Shoosmith and Hart are joined on the team by Abby Chidsey, Izzy LeVine, Sienna Corless, Alyssa Delafield, Matayah Delano, Adilyn Edra, Ambrea Habitan, Jayde Linson, Hannah Pilon, Hailee Ramos, Julissa Scott-Gonzalez and Ayden Wyman.

Sean LeVine is assisted by Mike Lonborg, Kirsten Olson and Micky LeVine.
