In Shorewood’s first-round victory over Marysville Pilchuck at Shoreline Stadium Saturday, Shorewood had many more chances to score, but the Thunderbirds were unable to connect because of a strong effort by the Marysville defense and their two goalies.

Regulation play ended 0-0, with the scoreless tie lasting through an overtime period. In the second overtime, after a corner kick, Dylan Collins made a quick counter attack pass to Taj McChesney, who was able to beat the goalie to the ball, control it and finish for a 1-0 win with 26 seconds left.

Goalie Calvin Crawford recorded the shutout for Shorewood.

Oak Harbor advanced to the semifinal and dropped Shorecrest into the losers’ bracket by defeating the Scots, 3-2, on penalty kicks.

The winners of the two semifinal games advance to the District championship game Saturday for the District’s No. 1 and No. 2 berths in the State tournament. The losers need to win two games to win the District’s No. 3 State berth.

The winner of the game between Shorecrest and Marysville-Pilchuck also must win two more games to win the District’s No. 3 berth.
