ARLINGTON – The Eagles girls soccer team is getting hot just at the right time.

They have won six of their last eight matches, the most-recent blanking Stanwood 3-0 Tuesday night to stay in the running for a state berth.

Arlington will play Edmonds-Woodway for third place in the 3A District 1 Tournament Thursday at 5 p.m. at Shoreline Stadium. The winner advances to state.

Hannah Hiester put the Eagles up 1-0 in the first half, with an assist from Ali Krediet. Jersey Heiss and Riley Christensen both scored unassisted tallies after halftime, and Alexine Miller-Wood provided a shutout in goal for the Eagles (9-9-1).
