PUYALLUP — Axel Wickstrom continued his dominant postseason play by knocking in two headers that paced Shorecrest to a 3-2 win over Bainbridge in a 3A State Tournament match on Friday afternoon.
“He is on fire,” said Scots head coach Drew Thompson on his star forward’s postseason play. “He played great today. He’s been getting balls played to him and he’s been scoring with his head. We keep Axel on the left side of the field and it’s been paying off.”
