Shorewood took a 2-1 boys’ soccer victory over Mountlake Terrace Tuesday at Shoreline Stadium on what Shorewood Coach Bill Wilkins called "another nice night for soccer."
Shorewood had some chances early but was unable to capitalize until the 30th minute, when Jack Bong was able to deflect a corner kick off a couple Terrace defenders and into the goal for a 1-0 Shorewood lead going into the half.
Terrace came out fired up in the second half and scored to tie the match. Terrace had a number of good chances after that and eventually was awarded a penalty kick. Shorewood goalie Isaac Whitaker saved it. This gave the Thunderbirds energy that led to the game-winning goal on a wicked one-touch shot from left to right by Ilya Panek with two minutes left that handed Shorewood the win.
Shorewood has an 8-1-0 Wesco 3A record (10-1-2 overall).
