Shorewood’s victory at Stanwood came on a wonderful night for soccer, with sunshine, blue skies and green grass.

In the first half both teams had a couple of dangerous opportunities, Stanwood nearly scored, hitting the post, but in the last minute of the first half Shorewood was awarded a penalty kick and Anthony Pepe converted for a 1-0 lead.

In the second half both teams came out hustling to improve their position. In the 66th minute Dawda Dibba scored on an assist from Danny Han for a 2-0 Shorewood lead. Eight minutes later Danny Han scored unassisted and the game ended with a 3-0 Shorewood win.

Shorewood goalies Cal Crawford and Isaac Whitaker shared the shutout.
