It's been a good week for Tom Bunnell. As many of you know, Tom is EFC's goalie coach. He also coaches the Issaquah High School Eagles varsity girls soccer team.
This week Tom achieved his 100th career victory at Issaquah High with a 4-0 victory over the Bothell Cougars. The victory earned Issaquah the right to host the coveted King County 4A championship game. That game, against Skyline, will be held this coming Tuesday, November 3rd, at Issaquah High School at 7:30PM. Both teams have players from Eastside FC on their roster. It will be a wonderful showcase, so come on out and enjoy the game.
Tom's overall record as coach of the Eagles is 100-11-6. Percentage-wise, that's 85.5% wins, 9.4% ties, 5.1% losses. Under his tutelage, the Eagles have won four KingCo conference championships and 3 WA state high school championships. A remarkable achievement for any coach.
"It takes great players to achieve any of these things," Tom said when we chatted. "I've had so many good players over the years who made this possible. And well over 50% of the best players I've coached came from Eastside FC. It says alot about our club and soccer program."
Additionally this week, Tom was voted Coach of the Year by his peers, the coaches of the King County conference. That's gotta feel good.
Congratulations, Tom. You're a good man - we're proud to call you a member of Eastside FC! And congratulations to ALL the players over the years who were part of this acheivement.
