The Shorecrest girls soccer team defeated Squalicum 1-0 Thursday night, thereby making the State Tournament for the eighth consecutive year, tying the school record.

Sometimes a game is won in the strength of a red-hot goalie, other nights a forward cashes in on a couple breakaways.

Thursday the greatest influence on the game at Shoreline Stadium was the wind, howling from the south.

Scots junior Izzy Menning was able to read the wind just right on a corner kick early in the second half, her right foot deftly placing it over the outstretched arms of the Squalicum keeper and tucking it into the far-top corner for the game’s only score.

SC keeper Maia Kaje, a junior, did the rest, preserving the shutout and propelling the Scots to State for the eighth consecutive year. Previously, Shorecrest ran a similar State streak during the 1991-1998 seasons.

Helping the Scots get to State during that time as a player was Mindy Falor, now SC’s Head Coach, Mindy Dalziel.

The Scots will learn their seed and bracket fate on Sunday when the WIAA announces all the pairings. State bracket is found HERE.
