Soccer loses to Tacoma team, still ranked first in league

Following a 11-0 win over Chimacum last week, the Vashon girls soccer team suffered a loss to Woodrow Wilson High School of Tacoma at the Stadium Bowl, on Thursday, Sept. 22.

Vashon fans weren’t surprised to see Wilson, a school with over 1,200 students, fielding a strong team that included several exceptionally skilled players.

The final score of 5-1 was lopsided, but included three corner kicks that were each nicely executed and converted to goals by Wilson.

The field play, however, was very closely contested, with good passing combinations and shots on goal by both teams.

Vashon put together several moments of excellence, one of which was a 45-yard free kick by junior midfielder Lena DeGuzman, to one bounce and a well placed header over the goalie to score by senior forward Cat Amick.

The Vashon team was forced to step up its game against the strong opponent and will now come back to take on teams in its own Nisqually League.

Vashon is 3-0 in league play and 3-1 overall, and is tied with Orting for first in the league, according to the Seattle Times.

Their next home game is at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4, against Seattle Christian and will likely be a hard fought match. Their last home game is scheduled for Oct. 11.
