Always contenders, Skyline soccer readies for its new season

Mar 08, 2023 11:57AM ● By Travis Barton

A year ago, the Skyline High School boys soccer team lost in a penalty shootout to eventual champion Alta in the semifinals. 

The final four is not an unfamiliar place for the Eagles soccer program. 

After tying for second in a grueling Region 6 and earning the No. 6 seed for the playoffs, Skyline beat Cottonwood and Wasatch to reach the semifinals. 

In 2021, as the 10-seed, Skyline navigated four wins in the playoffs over Bonneville, Alta, Mountain Ridge and Brighton before succumbing to Wasatch in the state championship. 

For the 2023 season that kicks off in March, the Eagles will hope to take the next step toward a state championship having not held the trophy aloft since back-to-back titles in 2014 and 2015. Defensively stout a year ago, the Eagles allowed only 12 goals in 18 games and will hope to continue that with the return of senior keeper Carson Wilde. 

Skyline‚Äôs region schedule is front-loaded with road games while four of its final five games will be at home.
