T-birds get by stubborn 'Cats | Soccer
First-place Shorewood finally broke through a stubborn Oak Harbor defense in the second half to earn a 3-0 soccer win at Wildcat Memorial Stadium Monday, April 2.
On paper the match looked like a mismatch. The Thunderbirds came in with a 5-0 record and a resounding 7-0 win over previously undefeated and 10th ranked Marysville Getchell last week. Oak Harbor is winless in 2012.
But the Wildcat defense, behind goalkeeper Kevin Silveira, blanked the Shorewood in the first half.
Coach Brian Thompson said, "Our defense was doing a great job. The second half we had a few injuries which allowed Shorewood to penetrate our defense and score."
Oak Harbor (0-6-1) goes to Everett (2-5) at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 4.
