T-Birds and Scots slog to 2-2 tie

Friday, April 7, 2017

On a night better suited for ark building than playing soccer, the Shorewood and Shorecrest boys battled to a 2-2 tie Friday night at Shoreline Stadium.

The Scots' Ricardo Ruiz opened the scoring with a goal barely five minutes into the game, as Shorecrest was playing into the stiff wind and sideways rain during the first half.

Mathew Wilkinson tied things up for the T-Birds with a header off a corner kick that got past Scots' goalkeeper Ben Evans at the 25:00 mark.

Shorecrest responded with nine minutes to play in the half when Rhys Kroehler blasted a rebound past the T-Birds' Nathaniel Poole, giving the Scots a 2-1 halftime lead.

Liam Ammador-Emmons knotted the game at two on a penalty kick with just under twenty-five minutes to play in regulation.

Poole made the save of the night with two minutes to play in regulation, stopping a Scots' shot from point-blank range to preserve the tie.

A surprisingly large (given the conditions) and spirited crowd was on hand to support the two teams, and their decorum reflected the great respect the community has for one another.
