Men’s Soccer hosted Edmonds on October 5. The Phins trailed Edmonds by 3 points in the North Region standings and were staring down an early must win game.

A win would pull the Phins even with Edmonds in the standings while a loss would create an almost insurmountable 6 point lead.

The Phins were focused form the opening whistle and a beautiful through ball from Noe Ellen opened John Crate who deftly finished past the Edmonds keeper with one touch.

In the 39th minute an Edmonds foul gave the Phins a direct kick from 40 yards out. Rei Ito played a curling ball towards the back post that continued to curl right into the upper corner of the Edmonds’ goal giving the Phins a 2-0 lead.

Edmonds pulled a goal back in the 44th minute and the teams went into the break with Shoreline leading 2-1. The only goal of the 2nd half came on another beautiful ball from Ellen – this time Angel Alcaraz was the recipient and he added to his team leading goal tally on the season guaranteeing the Phins the win and the much needed 3 points.

The Phins are now tied with Edmonds for 3rd place with 9 points in the North Region. Shoreline is 4-0-6 overall and 3-0-5 in the North Region. The Phins host Everett on Saturday, October 8th at 2:15pm.
