MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — Bobby Stoyanov scored a single-game school-record seven goals in the Mountlake Terrace boys soccer team’s 10-1 non-league victory over Granite Falls on March 16.
The standout senior forward needed less than 60 minutes to pull off the record-breaking feat, Hawks coach George Dremousis said.
“He probably could’ve had 10 if we’d left him in,” Dremousis said. “He was just really clicking that night. … And they were all quality goals.”
Stoyanov tied the previous school record with six goals in last season’s 6-5 win over Liberty-Issaquah in the Class 2A Bi-District Tournament semifinals. He recorded 27 goals and 12 assists last year while leading Mountlake Terrace to the program’s first state semifinal appearance in a quarter century.
Stoyanov already has 19 goals in six matches this season, including the seven-goal performance against Granite Falls and six goals the following match in a 7-1 win over Marysville Getchell.
“He’s about as good a player as there is in the state of Washington as far as goal-scoring goes,” Dremousis said. “When he’s locked in, he’s really unstoppable.”
