Shorewood earned its first league boys' soccer victory Friday at Shoreline Stadium, thanks to junior midfielder Tanner Jones’ (#10) hat trick, while Kamiak suffered its second consecutive defeat by a 4-2 score.

Shorewood displayed consistent ball possession early on in the game and had a few shots on goal that barely missed or were saved by the agile Kamiak senior goalkeeper, Caleb Smith. 

The hardworking Thunderbirds were finally rewarded with a 1-0 lead at the 23-minute mark as junior midfielder Sahil Khan (#11) put one in the net. 

As the rain started to pour at the 35-minute mark, the Knights came fighting back and knotted it up at one apiece as Kamiak senior Josh Harris (#14) cleaned up a mess on the left side of Shorewood’s goal following Kamiak senior defender Kyle Watts serving up a corner kick from the right.

Coming off the halftime stalemate, the Thunderbirds quickly started a Tanner Jones show as the junior midfielder (#10) put Shorewood (1-2 league, 5-4-1 overall) up 2-1 just 6 minutes into second half.

Although the resilient Knights very quickly answered with a blast from junior midfielder Zach Faller (#19) a minute later that temporarily tied the game again at 2-2, the night would belong to Jones as he put his second goal of the night ricocheting off right post at the 50-minute mark and a third and final goal off a free kick at the 54th minute after senior forward Essa Jallow (#17) was fouled at the top of the penalty box. Again with many outstanding saves, 

Smith was in goal for Kamiak (1-2, 4-4-2). Junior Simon Aspinall was the Thunderbirds’ goalie for the first half while junior Max Wright took care of the second half.

Shorewood’s next game is Monday at 7:30 pm at Mountlake Terrace High school.
