The District One 3A boys soccer tournament begins on Saturday, and local soccer fans will be treated to an ideal opening round match as the #4 seeded Shorewood Thunderbirds host their crosstown rivals, the #5 seeded Shorecrest Scots at 6pm at Shoreline Stadium.

The teams have played twice this season, with an early non-league game going to the Scots, 1-0, while the second matchup ended in a 2-2 tie.

Both teams finished the season with a pair of shutout wins. The T-Birds (7-4-1 in Wesco, 7-7-2 overall) blanked Everett and Edmonds-Woodway, while the Scots (6-3-3, 7-5-4) skunked Meadowdale and Marysville-Getchell to close out their regular season.

When asked what his team needed to do to advance to State, first year SW coach Gary Harris replied 
"We need to keep defending well as a team and limit our opponents' opportunities, and we need to find ways to score through set plays or from the run of play. We want to keep it close with our defense and try to score when our chances come".

SC coach Drew Thompson was more succinct in his analysis of what his team needs to do ....."defend, defend, defend".

#1 seed Snohomish (11-1, 13-2) comes into the tournament as the team to beat. Four teams will advance to the State Tournament from Districts.

The entire bracket can be found here.
