The Shorecrest Scots scored first, but the Squalicum Storm surged from behind to win the 2A State Girls Soccer Championship 2-1 Saturday evening at Shoreline Stadium.

In front of the biggest crowd of the season, enjoying blissfully dry weather, the Scots came out on fire in the first half, looking to avenge a 3-0 loss to Squalicum two weeks ago in the District One Championship Game.

Meghan Wicken scored her third goal in two nights, with assists from Mara Trostle and Alexa Iacolucci, about halfway into the first half to give the Scots the lead. But the undefeated (23-0-1) Storm kept their cool and applied pressure of their own late in the half, coming close to evening the score before halftime.

Kimberly Hazlett knotted the score at 1-1 just seven minutes into the second half on a long blast that found the upper-right corner past Scots' keeper Kate Wiper.

With the Storm applying relentless pressure, it seemed a matter of when, not if, they would score another goal, and that time came with just over six minutes to go in the contest when Kim Dorr scored off a corner kick from Michelle Saunders.

The Scots took home the second place trophy, finishing the season with a 19-5 mark - most of which was compiled playing up a division against 3A WESCO competition, including a 1-0 win over 3A State Champion Edmonds-Woodway.
