SHORELINE — Shorecrest scored twice in the final five minutes of the first half to snap a 1-1 tie, and the Scots claimed the district’s final berth to state with the victory over Stanwood in the third-place game of the 3A District 1 tournament. Both goals came when shots toward goal took deflections into the net, with Alex Ramsey and Jonathan Coon credited with the goals.
Axel Wickstrom also scored for Shorecrest (13-4-3), the No. 3 seed from the Wesco 3A South, which controlled play for much of the game. The Scots face the No. 2 seed from District 2 in the first round of state.
Alex Esary scored for Stanwood, the top seed from the Wesco 3A North, which finished its season 13-5-2.
