Shorewood 2 Shorecrest 1

Going into the game:

  • The Scots (3-3-1 in league play, 4-4-3 overall) were led by junior Haitem Moussaddak, and they've enjoyed an unexpected scoring burst from freshman Finn Hoffman.
  • The T-Birds (6-1-0, 8-1-2) were led by junior Garrett Miyaoka. Sophomore goalkeeper Nathan Poole has filled in quite nicely for injured senior Isaac Whitaker.
The Shorewood boys’ soccer team defeated Shorecrest 2-1 Wednesday at Shoreline Stadium on what Shorewood Coach Bill Wilkins called “an awesome night for soccer."

In the 13th minute Nick Trajano scored for Shorewood on an assist by Garrett Miyaoka. Fifteen minutes later Abdoulie Danso widened the Thunderbirds’ lead to 2-0 at the half.

At the 50th minute, Leon Bormann scored a nice header for Shorecrest to narrow the gap to 2-1. Shorecrest nearly scored with a minute left on a free kick by Branden Okazaki who kicked the ball from the left to the far right side that was headed across the goal and nearly tapped in.

Goalies were Nathaniel Poole for Shorewood and Spencer Haddenham-Gibler for Shorecrest.

Shorewood improved its Wesco 3A/2A record to 7-1-0 (9-1-2 overall). The Scots’ record is 3-4-1 (4-5-3).
