Shorecrest's Ricardo Ruiz #10
The boys' soccer team from Shorecrest defeated Lynnwood 2-1 Tuesday night to advance to Saturday’s District One 3A Championship Game against Snohomish.

Game time is 7pm at Shoreline Stadium.

The Scots (8-4 in league play, 12-6 overall) are guaranteed a berth in the State Tournament that begins next week.

Tuesday night, junior midfielder Alex Zahajko scored both Scots goals in the first half, with senior captain Ricardo Ruiz assisting on the first, and junior Noah Trostle setting up the second.

Lynnwood scored their lone goal in the second half to make it close, but junior Goalkeeper Odoum Nith was clutch down the stretch, thwarting all other Royals'
chances to ensure the win and send the Scots to Saturday’s District Championship Game, and to State.

Snohomish, a perennial boys soccer power and a hotbed of youth soccer, will be a formidable foe. The Panthers (10-1-1, 13-3-1) beat the Scots 2-1 on March 23.

Ricardo Ruiz spoke for his team. “We’re beyond excited for the chance to advance to State. It’s been a long journey with our boys, overcoming injuries, red cards, you name it, we’ve been through it. 
"We’re a young team with unmatched potential. People who underestimate us will make a big mistake. I’m excited to see how far we’re going to go, and hopefully, at the end of the ride, we will have the State trophy in our hands.”
