Shorewood defeated Shorecrest in a 2-1 Monday soccer game.

Shorewood's victory gives the Thunderbirds a 10-1-1 Wesco 3A record (12-1-1 overall) and sole possession of first place. A Shorewood victory or tie against Meadowdale at Edmonds Stadium Wednesday would clinch first place for the T-birds, as would a loss or tie by second place Glacier Peak.

Second-place Glacier Peak has a 9-2-1 Wesco 3A record (9-5-1 overall) going into a Wednesday match at Everett.

The match was another classic meeting between two of the strongest teams in Wesco 3A.  Shorewood hosted Shorecrest on Shorewood's Senior Night.

The scoring opened in the first half with a brilliant setup pass by Axel Wickstrom to Alex Day who finished it off in the 16th minute for a 1-0 Shorecrest lead that held into halftime.

In the second half Shorewood equaled the score. It started with a corner kick that was finished by Justin Collins at the 55th minute. With 6 minutes remaining Dawda Dibba took a free kick from just outside the left corner of the penalty box to the near post. It bounced out and was finished on the rebound by Kevin Price to give Shorewood a 2-1 lead.

Shorecrest countered with a couple very strong attempts, but they were unable to get past Calvin Crawford and his defense.  Final score Shorewood 2 and Shorecrest 1.
