4A soccer: Bellarmine tops Puyallup, advances to state semifinals

Contributing Writer

Nursing a 1-0 lead with two minutes to go until halftime, Bellarmine Prep boys soccer coach Joe Waters was making plans to talk about a conservative game plan for his team in the second half of its Class 4A state quarterfinal game against Puyallup.

His players had other ideas. They wanted to stay aggressive.

And Cooper Doxon’s goal in the 38th minute hammered the point home.

The Lions took advantage of the halftime lead and added two more goals in the second half, running away with a 4-1 quarterfinal win over the Vikings Saturday night at Harry Lang Stadium.

Bellarmine (14-1-2) will play Narrows League 4A champion Central Kitsap at 7 p.m. Friday in the state semifinals at Sparks Stadium. It will be the Lions’ seventh semifinal appearance under Waters.
