District Soccer: Bellingham vs. Sehome in round 3 tonight

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." ​
