Opponents one day, teammates the next.

That’s the case for a quartet of standout Bellevue soccer players on the Eastside FC ‘91 Premier soccer team.

Jordan Con and Andy Fordyce suit up for the Interlake Saints during the high school season; Liam Kelly and Race Sciabica don the blue and gold of Bellevue High School when taking the pitch.

But when it’s all said and done, as it is now with both teams eliminated from post-season play, the four turn their talents towards taking Eastside FC to the next level.

This year, that means representing Washington State at the US Youth National Cup Regional tournament in Hawaii later this summer.

All four players earned All-KingCo recognition this season: Con was First-Team selection at defender, while Kelly, a midfielder, and Sciabica, a forward, were tabbed as Second-Team picks. Fordyce earned honorable mention.

Kelly and Sciabica have the ultimate bragging rights, however. Bellevue defeated Interlake both times this season on the way to a 8-7-1 regular season finish. The Wolverines lost 2-1 to Sammamish in the KingCo 3A tournament to end the season.

The quartet excels off the field as well. Kelly, a junior, has been an ASB officer since his freshman year and spends the summers volunteering in community parks projects. Con is the IHS class of 2009 vice president while Fordyce serves on the Interlake Link Crew. Sciabica, also a standout kicker for the Wolverines football team, volunteers at the Boys and Girls club working with young athletes.
