Meadowdale sewed up the Western Conference South Division girls soccer championship Oct. 28 with a 2-1 win over Edmonds-Woodway at Edmonds Stadium.

Meadowdale coach Chris Baldwin said it was “hard work” and trust that led to the title.

“We’re a tight-knit team,” Baldwin said. “We’ve learned how to trust. Everybody has a job to do and nobody is above anyone else.”

Carly Holmes scored the game-winner for the Mavericks (8-0-0 league, 14-1-0 overall) in the 50th minute.

Julia Fjortoft put Meadowdale ahead with an unassisted goal in the 16th minute. But E-W (3-5-0, 7-7-1) came back to tie on a goal by Mireya Saucedo in the 30th minute. Lauren Previs assisted on Saucedo’s goal.

“Meadowdale has done a great job capitalizing all season on opportunities when they’ve had them,” E-W coach Bill LeCompte said.

“When we’ve had trouble in other areas, our defense holds it together for us,” Baldwin said.

Tanya Zickefoose was in goal for the Mavericks.
