The David Bromberg tune “Sharon” features the line (in its raucous chorus about a dancer who always leaves her audience wanting for more), “The same rowdy crowd that was here last night is back again”.

Much the same can be said for the enthusiastic throng in attendance at Tuesday night’s regular season girls' soccer finale between Shorecrest and Shorewood, as their hard-fought 1-1 draw left fans wanting more.

Those fans’ fondest wish has come true as the two teams will face each other in the first round of the District One 3A playoffs Saturday night at Shoreline Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 6pm.

The tournament format is double-elimination. The top four teams will advance to State.

District Tournament bracket is HERE.

Tuesday night’s match was a classic. Shorewood got on the board 30 minutes into the first half on a goal by fleet freshman Kaitlyn Manalili. Shorecrest evened the score three minutes later as senior Maddie Kellogg continued her hot scoring streak for the Scots.

Both teams had chances to take the lead in the second half and the two overtime periods, but a tie game it was destined to be.

Once again, this rematch presents an ideal opportunity for local youth players (of both genders) to come watch superb high school soccer being played by girls who sat in those very stands when they were in grade school, in the days when they were playing for Hillwood and Shorelake.
