Shorecrest v. Shorewood Girls’ Soccer on October 21

Friday, October 22, 2010

The rain held off for the most part for another match-up of crosstown rivals in girls’ high school soccer, Shorecrest vs. Shorewood, on Thursday night, October 21, at Shoreline Stadium. 

The JV game was delayed and shortened due to a missing referee, but the two teams made the most of the time they had in fairly even play, with Shorecrest JV pulling off a 1-0 win. Near the end of the 2nd half, Shorecrest pressured the goal with a well-organized and executed corner kick served by Freshman Jennifer Sui, causing the ball to deflect off a Shorewood player into the goal. The Shorecrest defense then held off Shorewood for another shutout by Shorecrest keeper, Freshman Willa Lerner.

The Varsity game was intensely competitive as well, with Shorewood’s Junior Jennifer Franklin able to finish two goals for the win. Shorewood’s first goal, coming in the 6th minute of the game, was a high bouncing shot, assisted by Freshman Zoe Vincini, and was just out of reach of Shorecrest keeper, Ashley Beason. The Shorecrest girls fought back with several runs, but no successful scores, and were able to hold Shorewood off from scoring again until the 49th minute of the game, when Franklin was assisted by Sophomore Bailey Wilson. Shorecrest just wasn’t able to get around the Shorewood defense, and allowed Shorewood Freshman goalkeeper Kelsey Jang a shutout. The game ended with the 2-0 Shorewood win, the opposite of these teams’ earlier September 28 match-up where Shorecrest came out on top 2-0.

With Thursday’s loss, Shorecrest Varsity dropped to 4th place in the WesCo 3A standings with a 7 win-6 loss record for the season, just behind Meadowdale’s 8 wins - 5 losses. The win bumped Shorewood up to a second place tie with Everett with 8 wins - 4 losses. Glacier Peak sits at the top of the WesCo3A with 12 wins, no losses.

Shorecrest plays Glacier Peak on Monday 10/25 at Shoreline Stadium in their last regular season game. Shorewood has two games next week: away at Oak Harbor on Monday, and Glacier Peak will be back at Shoreline Stadium on Thursday 10/27.

Both Shoreline teams continue into District tournament play between the top six WesCo3A teams in November.
