BURLINGTON — The Burlington-Edison High School girls' soccer team won its fifth consecutive game Tuesday night, beating Anacortes 2-0.

The Tigers are 13-1 while the Seahawks are 7-2-3.

"We battled and continued to learn that we can in fact distribute well against a highly ranked Burlington team," Anacortes coach Gretchen Hanson said. "We had several shot opportunities and many of our young players gained crucial experience."

Morgan White scored on an unassisted put-back in the 10th minute. Anacortes goalkeeper Claire Schnabel stopped the initial breakaway shot, however, the ball ricocheted away and White was in the right place.

"Morgan showed great tenacity to follow the play and put herself in the right spot to slot it home," Burlington-Edison coach Ryan Kuttel said. 

In the second half, Nyomie Schwetz put the Tigers up 2-0 when she took a pass from Renee Wargo and scored from the top of the 18-yard box.

"Claire had several beautiful saves and Sammy Dziminowicz, our center back, had an outstanding game," Hanson said.

The coach also highlighted the play of Morgan Berard and Erin Kennedy, saying they worked tirelessly to defend and distribute as central midfielders.

Kira MacKay netted the shutout in goal for Burlington-Edison.

"Overall, it was a high-quality game by two strong teams that are looking forward to the playoffs next week," Kuttel said.

SEDRO-WOOLLEY — The Cubs had the lead midway through the second half, but couldn't hold it.

"It’s unfortunate to have the last 20 minutes go the way that they did," Sedro-Woolley coach Natalie Sakuma said. "We had players filling in different positions and the team was able to produce many opportunities for us."

Rylan Kononen had a strong left-footed strike to give the Cubs a 1-0 lead.

"Although the outcome wasn’t what we wanted, the girls played a well-possessed game and are improving in our attack," Sakuma said.

Sedro-Woolley is 2-11.
