Under the bright sun, with the highest temperature since October, a whole 63°, the Bellevue Wolverines took on the Shorecrest Fighting Scots. Due to BHS’s Music Programs’ trip to Disneyland this weekend, the Bellevue Wolverines had a whopping 8 players this game! But with only 1 sub, they played hard, emerging victorious, final score 12-1.
Top goal scorer was captain Ava Grays, with 4 goals on 4 shots, on top of her 5 steals and 3 ejections drawn. Freshman Ellie Albert was a defensive beast, with 7 steals and 2 goals, one of which was a 5-meter shot. Ashley Kwon and Lacey Aquaro were major assets on both ends of the pool. Our goalies alternated between field and goal during the game, Audrey Grays had 9 saves and 1 goal, and Freshman goalie Riley Neibert with 6!
The game started off with a penalty and a successful 5-meter shot by Ashley Kwon at the 6:37 mark. Bellevue continued strong, scoring 3 more times, drawing 4 ejections, and having a lockdown defense, with the score being 4-0 Wolverines at the end of the first quarter.
