Shoreline has seen its share of great soccer players come up through the ranks over the last 40 years, and last Thursday night, Shorewood High School honored one of the greatest, Lori Henry.

Henry's No. 21 jersey was retired at the Shorewood-Shorecrest girls soccer game at Shoreline Stadium on Oct. 11. Henry graduated from Shorewood in 1984, a contemporary of Shorecrest star and fellow Women's National Team teammate Michelle Akers. Henry starred at North Carolina, winning three national titles there. She was the youngest member of the U.S. Women's National team in 1985 at age 19.

Today, Henry teaches P.E. at Kellogg Middle School and is an assistant for the Shorecrest girls soccer program.

Shorecrest beat Shorewood for the second time this season on Thursday, 2-1.

Shorewood opened the scoring in the 34th minute on a header by Zoe Vincini from a cross by Carrie Jensen.  Shorecrest equalized in the 38th minute on a 35 yard shot by Alexa Iacolucci.  The second half went back and forth with a few dangerous long shots by Shorecrest and some near misses by Shorewood before Shorecrest was awarded a free kick from about 30 yards out.  The shot was taken by Iacolucci which missed but Kate Hildahl knocked in a rebound for the winning score.  

Frida Swenson was goalie for Shorecrest and Ashley Garay was keeper for Shorewood.  

Shorewood is 4-4-1 in league and 5-4-3 overall.  Shorecrest is 6-1-2 and 8-2-2.
