2013 Rankings

– Offense – n/a

– Defense –2nd in League, 16th in State

2014 Outlook

Offense – As center midfield Sam Stewart goes, so go the Wolverines. His improvement and play will likely be the indicator of the Wolverines success. The fast Will Christison will provide a much needed speed threat to the offense. Sam Paul-Barrette will also see time at forward. The Wolverines will need to find a consistent scoring threat as they only scored 15 goals this past Spring.

Defense – Friday Harbor has a strong tradition of outstanding defenders, and Michael Hoeller is the guy to continue it, along with Cassidy Quigley. The improved defensive work in the midfield should lead to a better midfield, and again Stewart will be looked to to lead this. Two goalkeepers return to a squad that conceded 88 goals. 

Final Evaluation – As Friday Harbor enters a new classification, the rough memories of last Spring’s rebuilding will be fresh in everyone’s mind. The lone tie was a 3-3 draw with Coupeville, and Friday Harbor allowed 5 or more goals in a match 9 times. The schedule is entirely more forgiving this fall, and Friday Harbor should get some breaks in the Northwest League play against 1B and 2B teams, as opposed to 1A and 2A teams.
