EDMONDS — When playing defending 3A state boys soccer champion Shorecrest, the standard for success is different than it is for playing other teams.
Edmonds-Woodway coach Tony Gilman was pleased to play the Scots to a draw Friday night at Edmonds Stadium.
But that was just the second half.
The trouble for the Warriors came in the first half, when they fell behind 3-0 on the way to a 4-1 loss that knocked them out of a tie for first in the Wesco South Standings.
“We look at it positively that we played 1-1 against one of the best teams in the state (in the second half),” Gilman said.
Entering the game the Warriors (2-1-0 league, 6-3-1 overall) had the South’s second-best overall record, but they faced a Shorecrest (3-0-0, 10-0-0) team that had allowed just two goals all season — both of which came in a win over Kamiak.
It only took nine minutes for the Scots to get on the board when Glenn Paden headed an Erik Bracht feed past Warrior keeper Erik Whitney.
Shorecrest wasted no time displaying one of it’s biggest strengths — the ability to score in the air.
“They are a very strong team and very good in the air,” Gilman said. ”Not only offensively but defensively.”
Two of the next three scores also came in the air, including Eli Blauser’s header in the 27th minute from Joe Schober and the Scots’ lone second half goal that came when Asa Redfield converted an Ian Adams pass with his head in the 45th minute.
Paden scored his second goal, this time on the ground in the 19th minute and Adams set him up with the first of his two assists on the night.
“We didn’t give up,” Gilman said. “The last 12-15 minutes we spent counterattacking.”
The Warriors’ persistence paid off when Jeremy Wentzel found Martin Velazquez for a goal in the 65th minute past Eric Baker in goal. Shorecrest outshot Edmonds-Woodway 21-5 on the night.
Sam Schober relieved Baker for the final 10 minutes in net for the Scots. The Warriors made a few runs late but the results didn’t make it to the scoreboard.
“We had our chances (to score) at the end, but they had their subs in late,” Gilman said, partially explaining why his team had more success as the game wore on.
Shorecrest defeated the Warriors 2-0 in non-league play in the first game of the season. Six games remain in the regular season that looks increasingly like it will be an undefeated one for the Scots.
“(To beat Shorecrest) it’s going to take a team that is very mature physically and very experienced,” Gilman said.
