It was a muddy day at
Dolphin Field but that did not stop the Shoreline Community College Dolphins or
Green River Community College Gators from battling it out down to the last few
minutes. Shoreline was able to come away with the win defeating GRCC 2-1.
As a make-up game both
teams were eager to play each other. This was seen right away as the game got
off to a quick start when in the 7th minute Jessi Crabill of GRCC
had a breakaway against the Dolphins. Crabill converted to score the first goal
of the game in the one-on-one with SCC goalie Lauren Schoonover.
The Dolphins were not
shaken by the early goal and continued to battle. They received many corner
kicks in the first half and were able to connect in the 23rd minute.
Shoreline Sophomore Sara Gilmore sent the corner to Rebekah Hansen who was able
to tap the ball in and tie the game up 1-1.
The game was scoreless
for the rest of the first half and most of the second. However, this did not
mean that both goalies were not being continually challenged. In the 79th
minute Green River’s Darien Cannon fouled Shoreline’s Kayla Browne in the box
giving SCC a penalty kick very late in the game. Angela Celedon was able to
connect on the penalty kick and give SCC the 2-1 lead.
This win was essential
to keep SCC Women’s Soccer playoff hopes alive. They now have a record of
7-4-4. Shoreline will be playing Green River Community College again in Auburn,
WA on Wednesday, October 31st at 2:00pm.
