The Shoreline Community College Men’s Soccer Team held tough on Saturday night at Twin Ponds Park, as they tied Wenatchee Valley College 1-1.
WVC scored first at the 10 minute mark on a goal by Jonathan Molina and the Knights had multiple chances to score again in the first half but the Shoreline defense played well and held them scoreless. SCC scored right before half, as Karim Hanafy found the ball in front of the goal and hit a shot to tie the match up.
The 2nd half was a defensive battle, as the Dolphins may have played their best defense of the year, as they kept WVC out of the goal and did not allow the Knights into the SCC box very often. The SCC offense had catches but could not score.
The Dolphins are now 1-6-3 overall on the season and 1-2-2 in the NWAACC Northern Region after playing 5 region counting games against the NWAACC Eastern Region. Wenatchee Valley College is 2-4-2 on the season and 1-3-1 in the Eastern Region after playing five matches against the Northern Region. Shoreline is tied for 3rd in the Northern Region with Whatcom Community College. The top three teams in the region make the NWAACC playoffs at the end of the season.
Shoreline opens Northern Region play on Wednesday against rival Edmonds Community College at 3:15 pm at Twin Ponds Field. The Tritons are 3-4-1 overall, but 3-1-1 in the region and lead the division with 10 points.
