The Hazen Highlanders fell to the Kentwood Conquerors Tuesday, April 18 at Renton Memorial Stadium.
The league-leading Conks shutout Hazen.
Kentwood scored two goals in the first half and benefited from a Hazen own goal to go up 3-0.
“I’m scratching my head a little on this one,” Hazen coach Ken Matthews said in a media release following the game.
Hazen out shot Kentwood 12 to six, Matthews said. He added that didn’t count two scores that were taken back both because of an offside penalty against the Highlanders.
Despite the loss, Matthews named Robbie Schroeder as Varsity Man of the Match.
The Highlanders are 5-4-1 in league play and currently sit in fourth place in the North Puget Sound League 4A Cascade division.
Overall, the Highlanders are 7-4-1 with four games remaining in the regular season.
