Juanita boys soccer earns huge comeback win against Mount Si to advance in KingCo tourney

The Juanita High School boys soccer team defeated Mount Si on Monday 3-2, during the first round of the KingCo tournament at Mount Si High School despite falling behind 2-0.

The Wildcats built their lead during the first half, scoring a goal during the 14th minute and the 38th minute. But Juanita got an important goal with just second left in the first half.

Riley O’Rourke found Oscar Feuntes who put the ball into the back of the Wildcat goal as time expired on the first half, cutting the lead in half.

The second half was a defensive battle until the Rebels’ Noah Bochner broke the stalemate with an unassisted goal during the 70th minute.

Javier Macias finished off the improbably comeback with an unassisted goal with three minutes left in regulation for Juanita.

Mount Si finished the regular season in second place in KingCo, while the Rebels were fifth out of seven teams.

The Rebels advance to the second round of the KingCo tournament as a result of the win and will play Sammamish at 7 p.m. on Wednesday at Mount Si High School.
