Thomas Jefferson is unbeaten this season (16-0-4). The Raiders, the No. 1 seed out of District 3/4, defeated Wesco South 4A regular-season champion Mariner 5-2 in a state-tournament game in Federal Way on May 15. Jefferson’s quick, aggressive players proved too much for the Marauders to handle.
“Theyre a good team. Youve got to give credit to them,” Mariner head coach Vince DeSimone said after the Marauders loss. “Theyre a really good team.”
Brandon Madsen leads Thomas Jefferson with 18 goals scored. Isidro Prado-Huerta (14 goals, 15 assists) and Louis Alvaro Osornio (13 goals, seven assists) are also strong offensive weapons. All three scored in the game against Mariner.
