Sumner defeats Sehome, 1-0, completes perfect season for 2A girls soccer crown

Sumner High’s theme this season: Unfinished business.

But now the score has been settled, and the warm-up sweatshirts with that theme etched on the back no longer serve a purpose. No more business is left to finish.

These Spartans are the Class 2A State Champions — the first team to do so in school history.

“The business is completely finished,” said Sumner goalkeeper Jamie Lange after the top-ranked Spartans shut out Sehome 1-0 Saturday at Shoreline Stadium. “It’s done and it feels unbelievably great.”

The only score of the match came with five minutes left in the first half when Sumner’s leading goal-scorer Kaylie Rozell, who led the 2A South Puget Sound League with 33 goals during the regular season, passed across the middle from about the 6-yard-line to Kaitie Huff.

Huff dove, connected and scored. It was the only goal Sehome had allowed in the state playoffs.

With a defense led by Gonzaga-bound Sarah Carter, it was enough.
