Snohomish gets lucky with wild tiebreaker

Herald staff

SNOHOMISH – Six minutes away from first place and an automatic state berth, the Snohomish girls soccer team couldn’t seal the deal.

Thankfully, league by-laws saved the day.

Mountlake Terrace scored a game-tying goal in the final minutes of Saturday’s Western 4A Conference game, setting up a 1-1, double-overtime tie that spoiled the Panthers’ season finale and forced a four-way tie for first place.

Oak Harbor, Shorewood, Cascade and Snohomish (7-2-1 in league) ended the regular season tied for the top spot in the standings. League by-laws sent the foursome into a tiebreaker scenario, where thanks to a calculation of head-to-head records and other minutiae, Snohomish still came out on top.

Oak Harbor took second place, Cascade took third. Shorewood was the unlucky team. Only the top three squads advanced to the postseason.

With first place, the Panthers earned a bye from crossover play. Shorewood plays at Cascade on Wednesday.
