It was a muddy day Monday at Dolphin Field but that did not stop the Shoreline Community College Dolphins or Green River Community College Gators from battling it out down to the last few minutes. Shoreline was able to come away with the win, defeating GRCC 2-1.

As a make-up game both teams were eager to play each other. This was seen right away as the game got off to a quick start when in the 7th minute Jessi Crabill of GRCC had a breakaway against the Dolphins. Crabill converted to score the first goal of the game in the one-on-one with SCC goalie Lauren Schoonover.

The Dolphins were not shaken by the early goal and continued to battle. They received many corner kicks in the first half and were able to connect in the 23rd minute. Shoreline Sophomore Sara Gilmore sent the corner to Rebekah Hansen who was able to tap the ball in and tie the game up 1-1.

The game was scoreless for the rest of the first half and most of the second. However, this did not mean that both goalies were not being continually challenged. In the 79th minute Green River’s Darien Cannon fouled Shoreline’s Kayla Browne in the box giving SCC a penalty kick very late in the game. Angela Celedon was able to connect on the penalty kick and give SCC the 2-1 lead.

This win was essential to keep SCC Women’s Soccer playoff hopes alive. They now have a record of 7-4-4. Shoreline will be playing Green River Community College again in Auburn, WA on Wednesday, October 31st at 2pm.
