The Lindbergh girls soccer team fell 2-1 to Hockinson in the first round of the 2A state tournament Wednesday night.

The Eagles (13-5) got off to a hot start when Elise Aylward hit a cross from the left side that Lindsey Pfluger headed in for a goal less than 30 seconds into the game.

The teams then traded blows and close shots, playing a physical game. Hockinson tied the game about halfway through the second half, then took the lead minutes later.

Lindbergh's season is over after winning a share of the Seamount title and advancing to state for the third time in the past four years.

Hockinson advances to take on Squalicum.

Liberty 2, Shorecrest 0

After a scoreless first half, Liberty pulled away to beat Shorecrest 2-0 in the first round of the 3A state tournament Wednesday night.

The Patriots (13-3-1) got their first goal when Kali Youngdahl headed in a corner kick by Kiana Hafferty in the 59th minute. Youngdahl then assisted Jacquelyn Anderson minutes later.

Liberty will take on Bonney Lake at Sunset Stadium Saturday at noon.
