Hazen soccer 3-0 in league play

from a press release:

Hazen Soccer moved to 3-0 in league standings tonight after a strong showing against 3A foe Highline. It wasn’t easy as Hazen spotted Highline an early penalty kick goal, but the Highlanders rallied for an impressive 6-2 win.

Hazen started strong in the game. Hazen Coach Ken Matthews is fine tuning his roster for their push to the playoffs and playing and starting her first game as a permanent varsity squad member, freshmen midfielder Amy Warmenhoven bounced a shot off the cross bar at about two minutes into the game.

There wasn’t much more for Hazen in the first few minutes. Highline took advantage and scored on a penalty kick four minutes into the game.  Sophomore Keeper Brittany Dinkins got a finger on the shot but Highline went up 1-0.

Nine minutes later, senior attacking midfielder Brianne Sherin and senior forward Chelsea Delgado got the Highlanders on the board.

In a one minute span, Hazen took the lead and added another goal. Senior captain and defender Gabby Brower got a goal from a free kick and Sherin got her second from an assist by junior forward Brook Swensen to give Hazen a 3-1 lead at the half.

In the second half, Swensen got a goal at 51 minutes assisted by Sherin.  Highline got a goal a minute later. Erin Zetterberg got an unassisted goal and also assisted on Delgado’s goal.

“There were periods of time where we were so impressive. There’s this elusive 'it' where we go into a sort of a zone. It is so pretty to watch the flow from back to front,” said Matthews in a press release. “We got great play all across the field tonight.”

Hazen will take on Foster at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Renton Memorial Stadium.
