Hazen soccer crushes Evergreen, prepares for Renton
Hazen Soccer used Thursday's night's matchup as a tune up in advance of their big league match next week, beating Evergreen 8-0.
Evergreen is enjoying their best season in four years, but the Highlanders were on their game and it showed on the scoreboard.
Sophomore forward Erin Zetterberg had two goals and two assists, senior captain and defender Gabby Brower had a goal and two assists, and Brianne Sherin had two goals to lead Hazen in points.
Junior forwards Brook Swenson and Emma Lorrigan also had goals and Senior midfielders Cindy Hanson and Korbyn Walls had assists. Two players called up from the JV also combined on a goal when sophomore mid Sarah Hart scored off an assist by Freshmen Forward Allison Sargent.
“It was nice to be able to ease into the league tonight. From what I’m reading, we’re going to have our hands full with Renton Tuesday. The Renton Reporter says they’re a top team in the league and the Seattle Times said their game against Lindbergh was the Seamount Game to see last week. I’ve watched them a couple of times and they are good,” said coach Ken Matthews in a press release.
It’s a big departure for Matthews. When he came into the league five years ago, the Renton games were hardly a speed bump.
“Andrea (Anderson, Renton’s coach) has done a great job. They’ve gotten better every year. If you had told me their game against Lindbergh was the Seamount Game of the week on the same night we were playing Kennedy, I would have laughed. But it is obvious they have something working and we better be on our toes,” Matthews ended.
