Shorecrest hands Panthers first Wesco 4A soccer loss

Herald staff

SHORELINE – The Shorecrest Scots knocked off Western Conference 4A Conference leader Snohomish 2-0 in a girls soccer game played Thurday night at Shoreline Stadium.

Before the game started the Scots were quiet and nervous, according to Shorecrest coach Gary Harris.

“We knew this was a big game, Snohomish is always tough,” Harris said.

Both teams had chances in a scoreless first half, but neither side could put it into the net.

Junior Vicky Ormsby notched the first goal for the Scots in the 50th minute on a 20-yard free kick that bent over the wall and into the back of the net, according to Harris.

Shorecrest struck again in the 65th minute when sophomore Whitney Michiels took on four Panther defenders leading to a deflection to senior Anna Buxton, who buried it into the goal.

“The whole team stepped up and played very well tonight,” Harris said.

“Our defense played really well,”

The defensive line of freshman Mickey Pelland, sophomores Beth Healy and Jenna Walsh and senior Julie Crow contained the Panther attack and shut them off the scoreboard.

“I didn’t feel safe until the final whistle blew,” Harris said.

Each team has three conference games left. Snohomish now fell into a tie for first with Cascade at 6-1 in the conference. The Panthers and the Bruins play Oct. 26.

The Scots are in fourth place a half game ahead of idle Mountlake Terrace.
