District Soccer: Bellingham vs. Sehome in round 3 tonight
May 12, 2018
The top 2A Northwest Conference boys soccer teams are set to clash again. Tonight's meeting at Civic Stadium is for the district championship.
Bellingham (16-0-1) and Sehome (14-3-1) will square off in their third meeting of the year. The first match in March resulted in a 1-1 draw. Bellingham got a 2-1 victory in the second meeting in April.
"It's difficult to score goals on that team, said Bellingham coach Matt Zigulis. "They're organized defensively and then they have a great transition and outlet in (Danny) Fazio."
"When we play them it's two different styles and they play to their strength," said Sehome head coach Richard Henderson. "they've got a real good team spirit, real hard working guys in the midfield who make it difficult for us to dominate possession like we're used to."
Tonight's match begins at 6:00pm at Civic Stadium.
Elsewhere, the Squalicum and Meridian soccer teams are looking to extend their postseasons with loser-out/winner-to-state matches today.
The Trojans take on University Prep at 1:00pm at Sammamish High School. The Storm battle Meadowvale at 5:00pm at Shoreline Stadium.
