Scots avenge earlier soccer defeat with T-Bird shut out

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

A full moon rose over Shoreline Stadium minutes before Tuesday night's kickoff between Shorecrest and Shorewood, and for the T-Birds it was a bad moon rising as the Scots avenged an earlier defeat at the hands of their cross-town rivals, blanking the T-Birds 3-0.

 It was a beautiful night with lots of support in the stands.  

In the 5th minute Shorecrest almost scored when a shot went off the crossbar. At minute 19 Shorewood took a turn coming close, hitting the left post. In the 28th minute Elizabeth Holmdahl broke the ice for Shorecrest, looping a long shot from the right side over T-Bird keeper Ashley Garay. Three minutes later Mara Trostle scored for the Scots on an assist from Sophia Viviano to make it 2-0.  

For the first 15 minutes of the second half Shorewood pressed forward furiously and developed numerous chances but could not score as the Scots' veteran defense stood stoutly.  

At the 65th minute Rachael Moulton scored off of a corner kick for Shorecrest to finish the scoring.  

Ashley Garay and Maddie Bell-Knight played goalie for Shorewood, whose league record now goes to 3-1-2 in WesCo action (4-4-2) overall. Kate Wiper had the shutout in net for Shorecrest, 5-0-0, (7-2-0 for the season).

Thursday night at 7pm the T-Birds return home to play an always dangerous Marysville-Pilchuck squad, while the Scots travel north to face Marysville-Getchell.
