The Arlington boys soccer welcomed the Shorecrest Scots to their home field on April 10.

Early on both teams played aggressive, taking turns making runs to the goal only to get their final shots blocked. Both keepers kept the pressure on with a lot of incredible saves and defenses that failed to give up.

In the 27th minute the Scots finally broke through and put it into the back of the net to go up 1-0 over the Eagles. Before halftime, Shorecrest would slip through the Arlington defense once again in the 38th minutes.

The Eagles came out in the second half and pushed the Scots' defense back to the net. With a handful of shots on goal Arlington came close to scoring but wasn't able to put it up on the scoreboard. Shorecrest went on to score two more times in the second half in order to earn the 4-0 victory over the Eagles.

Arlington's junior mid Nathan Ursino battles for possession against the Scots forward at Arlington High School on April 10.

"I thought we played really good defense except for the three mistakes that gave them the first goals. The issue was we weren't confident enough to put the pressure on our offense. It's been taking us a little bit of time to get all of the guys together, but I think we're starting to gel," said Arlington Head Coach Michael Gudgeon.

On the defensive end, sophomore defender Evan Aune was a key part to the successes that Arlington had for most of the game. As a centerpiece in the middle of the defense he was able to help navigate shifts and directed the rest of the Eagles.

The Eagles' offensive performance was pushed by senior mid Wyatt Bierer, and freshman forward Juan Castillo. Both of them worked together to lead Arlington's offense and rack up multiple shots on goal throughout the game.

If you want to support the Eagles, their next home game will be against the Edmonds-Woodway Warriors on Tuesday, April 24, at 7:30 p.m.
