Mercer Island tops Liberty, remains on top of KingCo | Girls prep soccer

The Mercer Island girls soccer team has a firm grasp on the top of the KingCo standings after beating league rival Liberty 1-0 on Monday evening.

The Islanders, now 4-0-1 in league and 6-0-1 overall, beat Liberty on a 73rd minute goal from Marissam Hammerstrom, assisted by Laura Harrison.

“Liberty was the top team and it was a very close battle,” said head caoch Terry Ryan. “Liberty is clearly a top team.”
