Wednesday was an excellent night for the Shoreline district rivalry match between Shorewood and Shorecrest. Shorecrest brought their undefeated record into the game and nearly scored in the 5th minute, but Isaac Whitaker was able to get his hands on the ball and stop it from going into the side net -- one of his 10 saves that were shot on goal.

Shorecrest had more chances then Shorewood in the first half, but neither team was able to find the back of the net. In the second half, both squads put pressure on each other: Shorecrest again had more chances and numerous long throws from Corey Stever but Isaac and his defense came up with the saves to keep them shut out.
