Shorewood opens boys’ soccer season with 3-0 victory at Woodinville Monday

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

The Shorewood boys’ soccer team opened its season with a 3-0 victory over Woodinville Monday at Pop Keeney Stadium in Bothell.

The first match of the season for both schools was a reunion with Shorewood's former head coach, Nathan Davis, now the head coach of Woodinville.

The players were excited to see him and wish him all the best. Once the whistle blew, however, it was game on. It took six minutes for Taj McChesney to slide a ball in for the first goal of the season on an assist from Danny Han. The score remained 1-0 at halftime.

The second half saw Woodinville step up its intensity and press hard for an equalizer, but at the 68th minute, Kabir Khan scored his first Shorewood varsity goal on a pass from Jack Allen. As Woodinville pressed harder to get a goal, Dylan Collins was able to play a rebound from a shot that was stopped but not held by the goalie in the 75th minute.

Calvin Crawford got the shutout in goal for Shorewood.

Shorewood Coach Bill Wilkins called the match closer than the final score indicated.

The Shorewood junior varsity lost to Woodinville 4-2 Monday.

The Thunderbird varsity takes its 1-0 record into a home game against Kennedy Catholic Saturday at 7pm at Shoreline Stadium. Junior varsity teams from the two schools meet at 5.
