MUKILTEO – And then there was one.

In Monday’s showdown for Wesco South soccer supremacy, Shorecrest (9-0-1) capitalized on two free kicks and defeated Kamiak (7-1-1) to remain undefeated and secure sole possession of first place in the division.

“We’re happy to be on top (of the Wesco South) right now,” Thunderbird coach Drew Thompson said. “We were fortunate to get a couple of opportunities to capitalize and score.”

It didn’t hurt that two game-changing calls provided them two almost automatic scoring opportunities either.

In the 57th minute, Shorecrest played a ball into the Kamiak penalty box and when the Thunderbird striker went down, the far-side assistant referee flagged for a penalty kick.

Shorecrest midfielder Elliot Richards punched the penalty shot into the net to put the Thunderbirds up 1-0.

Fifteen minutes later (72nd minute), another foul was called on Kamiak just outside the top of the penalty box, and again Shorecrest capitalized.

This time junior midfielder Mickey Crudo ripped a low line drive that was slightly deflected to beat Kamiak goalkeeper David Dunaravick and make the score 2-0.

The Knights had their own chances on offense.

In the second half, Kamiak’s Kyle Benson made numerous cross-field runs and played cross passes into the box.

Kamiak mustered six second-half shots and created numerous set-play chances off free kicks and corners.

However, Shorecrest goalkeeper Andy McDonald was up to the challenge, making two diving saves and controlling the ball well in wet conditions.

“Andy has played well all year, and tonight was no exception,” said Thompson. “We’ve got the talent and now we can start to look ahead at getting back (to state) and maybe even winning state this year.”
