Oak Harbor loses in playoffs, hosts next game | Soccer

There was no upset this time around.

Last year Oak Harbor High School shocked Shorecrest in the opening round of the district soccer tournament. The Scots made sure that didn't happen this spring, defeating the Wildcats 3-0 at Shoreline Stadium Saturday, May 10.

Oak Harbor (6-10-1) will now have to string together three wins in the consolation bracket of the tournament to nab the third and final District 1 seed into the next round of the playoffs.

In the first two matches, and possibly the third, the Wildcats will challenge a team they lost to during the regular season.

Step one is at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 13, when Meadowdale visits Wildcat Memorial Stadium.

The Mavericks (9-6-2) defeated host Oak Harbor 3-1 last week (May 5).

If Oak Harbor wins, it will travel to the loser of Glacier Peak (13-2-2) and Shorewood (10-3-4) at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 15.

Glacier Peak topped Oak Harbor 2-0 April 9, and Shorewood stopped the Wildcats 3-0 April 21.

In Oak Harbor's loss to Shorecrest (14-3) Saturday, the Scots' Ryan Heffernan scored two goals and assisted on another.

Shorecrest led 1-0 at halftime.

"We played real well the first half," coach Brian Thompson said. "I have to say our injured players gave it their all as long as they could.  Their defense did a good job of stopping our attack."
