MOUNT VERNON — The Hurricanes repeated as Bi-District 2B/1B champions with the shutout.

"I was very pleased with how my midfield played," said Mount Vernon Christian coach Mike Russell. "They challenged everything, disrupted Friday Harbor's attempts to go forward, had good distribution, and were able to get themselves involved with our attack and provide excellent combination opportunities."

Hannah Van Hofwegen scored a pair of goals while Kylee Russell, Lily Long and Abby Russell all scored once for the Hurricanes.

Mount Vernon Christian (14-1-1) led 3-0 at halftime.

"Because of their hard work and excellent play, four of our goals were scored by midfielders," Russell said. "Hannah, Lily, Sophia Schmaus, Caitlin VanderKooy, Ruthie Rozema, and Kylee  all played outstanding tonight for us in the midfield."
