Lincoln 1–2–1–1- 5
Issaquah 2–2–3–3- 10
A great match up to kick off the 2008 season for both teams. Some occasional sloppy play, but the game had the feel and intensity of mid-season contest.
Issaquah struck first less then 30 seconds in as Goldstein found Director for a lefty rip top shelf. Game was even most of the first half. Issaquah had trouble containing Lincoln's, Peter Baum as Baum had a hat trick before halftime. A timeout call and well executed Wright to Bates finish with six seconds left gave Issaquah the lead at half.
Issaquah's defense made some key second half adjustments and after an even eight minute spurt broke the game open at the end of the 3rd quarter. Lincoln pulled one back early in the 4th, but three unanswered goals put the game away.
