Lynnwood stops long losing streak

LYNNWOOD – The streak is dead, long live the streak.

The Lynnwood Royals put a stop to a losing skein of at least 26 games with an emotion-charged 3-2 victory over the Mountlake Terrace Hawks in the Western Conference South Division season opening girls soccer game for both teams Tuesday.

“I don’t think the girls will sleep too well tonight,” first-year Lynnwood coach Daghan Kasim said. “My tryouts are called marine training because they work so hard. After the game they were all crying because they know it was worth it.”

Last year Lynnwood was outscored 82-5, said Kasim.

Amanda Overdick scored goals for Lynnwood in the 21st and 70th minute with assists from Adriana Moya and Lauren Jacobsen, respectively. Defender Rochelle Hahn punched in the game winner in the 78th minute with an assist from Christina Mah.

“Christina made an amazing cross,” Kasim said. “We made some decoy runs before Rochelle came in and finished it.”

A key for the Royals was the antics of Moya, an attacking midfielder. “(Moya) did an amazing job of controlling the ball and playmaking,” Kasim said. “Mountlake Terrace is a very stong, very fast team. All credit to them.”

Lynnwood goalkeeper Jessy Hernandez had four critical saves, said Kasim.
