Herald staff

EVERETT – The Western Conference 4A girls soccer league leader Snohomish and runnerup Cascade squared off Thursday at Everett Memorial Stadium and the Bruins claimed 2-0 victory with the help of the Hardin sisters to put themselves on top of the conference and clinch a playoff spot.

Shannon Rasmussen drove the left side of the field and hit the sliding Brie Hardin with the cross to put the Bruins up 1-0 in the 35th minute.

Natalie Hardin scored her 18th goal of the season in the 62nd minute off a ricocheted corner kick to put the Bruins up 2-0.
