Lady Eagles grab 3A district soccer title

SHORELINE — A right corner kick bent into the goal in the second half by Arlington senior midfielder Courtney Arnold gave the girls soccer team the 3A district title over Snohomish 1-0 Nov. 5.

“Bending it is not that hard, but when you have two big girls up in front who finish pretty well” the goalkeeper isn’t going to focus on the kicker alone, coach Nathan Davis said.

It is Arlington’s first district title to Davis’ recollection.

“It’s great for these girls,” Davis said. “Last year they were all juniors, and the senior class was great. Well this year it’s been fun for this senior class to get part of a reward.”

Arlington’s defense did well for itself too — particularly junior goalkeeper Brielle Schrader, who has recorded 12 shutouts for the Eagles.

“Brielle’s playing great right now,” Davis said.

Arlington fell short of the championship last season to Edmonds-Woodway, and the Eagles went on to place fourth insState.

Having the district title this time around will give Arlington a little more momentum going into state, Davis said.

Arlington hosts Mercer Island, Tuesday, Nov. 7, at 7 p.m. in the first round of the 3A state tournament.

“We played Mercer Island before, and we scouted them—they’re intense,” Davis said.
