The Shorecrest boys soccer team fell to mighty Snohomish 3-1 Tuesday night in the District One 3A semi-finals.

With the win, Snohomish qualifies for the State Tournament for the 18th time in the last twenty years. They will oppose Lynnwood Saturday night at 7pm in the District Championship Game at Shoreline Stadium.

Shorecrest got on the board first against Snohomish on a Noah Trostle goal just four minutes in. It didn't take long after that for the Panthers' machine to start clicking on all cylinders, though, as they scored all three of their goals in a twenty minute stretch.

The Scots hung around in the second half, needing just one goal to make the game interesting, but to no avail.

Still, Coach Drew Thompson was pleased with his team's performance.

"We really stepped up our game in the second half but couldn't find the net. If we play that hard on Thursday, we'll be fine".

Junior goalkeeper Ben Evans was instrumental in keeping the Scots in the game, making countless big saves throughout the game.

The Scots (8-6-4) will play Edmonds-Woodway (8-8-2) Thursday at 5pm at Shoreline Stadium. The winner qualifies for State, while the loser is eliminated.
