The Vashon varsity girls soccer team gave a winning performance at home last Wednesday for senior night, with a 6-0 victory against Annie Wright. Coincidentally, the score was the same at the end of the last match between the two teams earlier in the season.

Vashon’s offensive line dominated the passing game from the start, making for a quiet first half for sophomore goalie Tamsen Henry. The defensive line barely let the ball pass through, with strong play throughout the match. Senior Emily Serebryakov scored Vashon’s first goal within the first 10 minutes of play, and another goal from a penalty kick brought on by a foul called against Annie Wright’s keeper for playing Serebryakov instead of the ball. Senior Anna Riggs had a standout game, scoring two goals and assisting another for junior Sydnee Adams.

With a safe lead, Coach Scott Nicolino shuffled players around in the second half. Freshman defensive player Phoebe Wilke moved up to the front line, attempting a couple of thrilling shots on goal. With Adams in as the second half goalkeeper, Henry scored Vashon’s last goal of the game. Senior Maya Gould returned to the field after sustaining an injury to the knee during Vashon’s opening game of the season, performing a few rousing attempts on goal.

The team finished second in the Nisqually League, with a 5-win-2-loss-1 tie record. Playoffs began after press time on Tuesday at Silverdale Stadium against Klahowya.
