Shorewood Boys Soccer Team Season Ended By Bainbridge in Shootout

T-birds lose for the only time in state quarterfinals

The Shorewood boys soccer team's undefeated season came to end as Bainbridge outlasted the T-birds in a penalty kick shootout, 3-2, Saturday afternoon at Shoreline Stadium.

Shorewood struggled in the first half, falling behind 1-0, only the second time they had trailed all year but rebounded to score twice and take the lead in the second half. 

Bainbridge struck first when sophomore Peter Fawley scored on a breakaway in the 13th minute. In the 48th minute, the Thunderbirds tied it 1-1, on a goal by Andreas Gobel.

Shorewood took a 2-1 lead in 59th minute, when Owusu Fordjour buried a shot on goal.

However, the Shorewood defense gave up a late goal to Bainbridge junior defender Jesse Moore in the 73rd minute, and that forced overtime.

No. 1-ranked Shorewood only allowed six goals in 21 games, but two of them came against No. 5 Bainbridge.

Neither team scored in the two five-minute overtimes, setting the stage for the shootout. 

In the eighth-round of kicks, Bainbridge forward Deveraux Kesler capitalized after a Shorewood miss by Dodge Schaeffer, with a shot to the lower-left corner past a diving Shorewood goalkeeper, Daniel Nadeau, according to the Seattle Times. 

The T-birds missed two of their eight penalty kick attempts against Bainbridge goalie Carsten Frederickson.

Shorewood coach Nathan Davis told the Seattle Times that the first half was the T-birds, "worst 40 minutes of soccer," this season. 

Bainbridge advances to the 3A state semifinals to play Mountain View, a 2-1 winner Saturday over No. 2 Camas.

"They're a great team," Davis told the Times. "I hope they go out and win state so we can say we lost to the eventual champs."
