The Shorewood girls soccer team defeated top-seeded Edmonds-Woodway 2-1 Tuesday night and have qualified for next week’s State Tournament.

But there is still important business at hand for Coach Gary Harris’ T-Birds as they’ll face powerful Snohomish for the District Championship at Shoreline Stadium Saturday afternoon at 3pm.

It was a case of too many Manalilis that made life miserable for Ed-Way Tuesday.

The T-Birds got on the board first against the Warriors when freshman Morgan Manalili poked home a rebound two minutes into the second half to break the scoreless tie. Sixteen minutes later twin sister Kaitlyn flashed her lightning speed to score on a breakaway to make it 2-0.

Ed-Way didn’t go down without a fight, getting on the board with 13 minutes left in the match. But T-Bird goalkeeper Abby Manis repelled repeated Warrior chances to tie the game, and in the end it was Shorewood who qualified for State with the victory.

In an earlier match Tuesday, Shorecrest kept their State playoff hope alive by shutting out Meadowdale 4-0. They’ll face Squalicum Thursday at Shoreline Stadium, with the winner advancing to State, while the loser’s season will end. Kickoff is 7pm.

Tournament bracket is here.
