On their way to winning the 3A State Championship last year, the Edmonds-Woodway girls' soccer team lost a pair of games. One was a pre-season defeat to Bellevue, which the Warriors avenged by beating Bellevue in the State playoffs.  

It took a little longer to settle the score for their other loss (a regular season game against Shorecrest, which finished second in the 2A ranks last year), but the Warriors turned the trick by defeating the Scots 2-1 Tuesday night at Edmonds Stadium.

With senior Maddie Schultz, last year's state Player of the Year, enjoying the game in the stands with friends instead of playing on the field, E-W's Haley Tschohl took advantage of a Scots' defensive lapse and trickled a shot just inside the left post with a minute to play, to give the Warriors the win. Schultz is focusing on academics this semester so she can enroll in January at perennial soccer powerhouse North Carolina.

Shorecrest opened the scoring five minutes into the game on a long free kick from Alexa Iacalucci, whose shot from distance caught the underside of the crossbar and caromed off the hands of E-W keeper Hannah Hicks and into the back of the net.

Eight minutes into the second half, Edmonds-Woodway knotted the score on a shot by Gabby Clark.

E-W did a good job of bottling up SC scoring threat Sophia Viviano, whose 32 goals last season were one behind Schultz' 33.

The Scots return home to host Arlington Thursday night at 7 at Shoreline Stadium.
