Snohomish United girls soccer’s run at nationals ends

The Snohomish-based 2005-born team won its final group match 2-0, but won’t advance to the semifinals.

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas — Taylor Browne and Kirsten Crane scored second-half goals to lift Snohomish United’s top 2005-born girls soccer team to a 2-0 win over Ohio-based TFA Elite in its final group-stage match Thursday at the U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships.

It was the first victory in three group matches for Snohomish United, which fell short of advancing to Saturday’s 14-and-under national semifinals after accumulating three points in the group stage.

Maryland-based Pipeline Spirit Pre-Academy and St. Louis-based Lou Fusz Geerling earned the group’s two semifinal berths, finishing atop the four-team group with seven points apiece.

Snohomish United opened group play with a 2-1 loss to Lou Fusz Geerling on Tuesday and fell 1-0 to Pipeline Spirit Pre-Academy on Wednesday. Browne, Crane and Isabelle Thoma netted Snohomish United’s three goals in the tournament.

Snohomish United won state and regional titles to become the first team in its club’s three-decade history to advance to the U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships.
