The Surf Report – October 8th

| THE SURF REPORT | SHORELINE, WASHINGTON | ISSUE 10 | VOLUME 2 |

All three Fall sports programs took to the road on Wednesday, October 8th for key North Region match ups. Both soccer programs are currently fighting for playoff spots as they have passed the mid way point of their region schedule. Volleyball is still in the first round of their league play, but currently in the midst of a battle for a region title. Catch up on all of Wednesday’s action below!

Men’s Soccer came into Wednesday’s away fixture with Edmonds trailing the Tritons by 5 points for4WWjxEQ_onttxK04iB3mDCNcl3D0ygDsHzUeLV7AtBY the 3rd and final playoff spot. In their first match up the Phins and Tritons drew 1-1 in a game that created a number of chances but even better goalkeeper play. This time around goals came early and often with Alec Somers marking his return to the line up with a goal in the 27th minute off an assist from Salvador Mercado. The Phins got the next goal in the 61st minute from Adrian Torres thanks to an assist from Jorge Varela to go up 2-0. Edmonds would answer right back to stay with in striking distance with a goal of their own in the 65th minute. The Phins sealed their win with a Clark Murray goal in the 70th minute set up by Yovani “Lukie” Martinez. Jerry Reyes-Ortega recorded 4 saves in goal and the Phins would go onto win 3-1.

The win and subsequent 3 points puts the Phins squarely back in playoff contention as they now trail Edmonds by just 2 points for the final NWAC playoff spot. Shoreline has 7 league games remaining including a home fixture with Edmonds and a road match with Skagit Valley that could decide the last playoff spot. Next up the Phins host Everett Community College on Saturday, October 10th at 3pm.

 

Volleyball traveled to Skagit Valley looking to break their 2nd place tie with the Cardinals. The Phins were coming off an emotional Monday night doubleheader in which they swept Columbia Basin and got mweHVV4q5i2_BTjziLumGFnSc1AUjUZKFd3fQ6VnGWAa come back victory against NWAC #3 Blue Mountain. Shoreline started the match drained from their Monday night doubleheader and dropped the first set 12-25 to the host Cardinals. However, the Phins immediately responded as they have all season and took the next three sets to win the match (12-25, 25-23, 25-19, 25-15). The win gives the Phins sole possession of 2nd place as the first round of North Region play winds down. It was another team effort for the Phins led by Taylor Alexander’s 12 kills and 8 digs. Carlie Howard recorded 37 assists and 10 digs of her own. Libero A’laisia Redden was everywhere on defense with 23 digs. Anya Golubitskikh had 9 kills and Quinn Walker added 7. Josephine Dalrymple ended the night with 7 kills and 6 digs. Kristina Nielsen led the team with 4 blocks to go with her 6 kills.

The Phins finish off the first round of North Region play with a match at home against Edmonds Community College on Wednesday, October 14th at 7pm. They will then travel to Lower Columbia College for an NWAC Crossover event before starting the second half of league play.

 

Women’s Soccer made the trip to Edmonds looking for 3 points and to distance themselves from both the Tritons and Whatcom Community College for 3rd place in league. The last match up between thesemVouERpbujcdW_jNR57ubaLorXbCFbtO_JecvPmhhuw teams resulted in a second half come back in which the Phins erased a 0-2 deficit to win 3-2. This time out the Phins would not need the come back effort as Tayler Lime headed home a Gabi Danyo free kick in the 52nd minute. Danyo would get a goal of her own just 4 minutes later as Caty Miller slid a through ball to the on running Danyo to give the Phins a 2-0 lead in the 56th minute. That scoreline would hold as goalkeepers Naza Hernandez and Amanda Aversano would combine for the shutout as the Phins walked away with the needed three points.

Next up Shoreline hosts Everett Community College on Saturday, October 10th at 12:30pm. The Phins currently sit in 3rd place 4 points clear of Whatcom with 7 games remaining in the North Region.
