Girls Soccer Shorecrest plays Shorewood Tuesday night

Monday, September 11, 2017

Youth soccer coaches from Hillwood and Shorelake Soccer Clubs would be well advised to pack up their teams and bring them to Shoreline Stadium Tuesday night, as the Shorecrest girls play Shorewood at 7pm.

Both teams are searching for their first win of the early season.

Mindy Dalziel’s Scots dropped a 2-1 decision at home last week in their season opener against always tough Glacier Peak, a 4A team.

Gary Harris has taken over the reins of the T-Birds, and they’ve been blanked in both their early matches, also against top-notch competition. 1A powerhouse Kings topped them 4-0, while 3A Lakeside beat them 2-0.

Harris, a veteran local soccer coach, knows it’s early.

“We need to find ways to score. And while we gave up some goals, we did defend well as a team and many of the goals we allowed are preventable. The girls are working hard and have great attitudes, so I know we’ll improve as the season progresses.”

Senior Anna Whitaker has distinguished herself on defense ever since her freshman year. Senior Grace Morehouse and sophomore speedster Rachel Shoop can run like the wind and are fun to watch.

For the Scots, they are led by masterful midfielder Maggie Taylor, a senior. Sydney Brandt and Laura Hoover, also seniors, stand out, as do juniors Amanda Kagarabi and Maddy Kellogg.

As this is deemed a pre-season game, expect to see nearly all eligible players to see game action.

But just because it won’t count in the league standings, it’s still Shorecrest and Shorewood.

So it still matters.
