SEDRO-WOOLLEY — The Sedro-Woolley boys’ soccer got exactly what it was looking for heading into spring break — a win at home.
The Cubs shut out Nooksack Valley 4-0 Thursday night to improve to 3-1-1 in Northwest Conference play and 6-1-1 overall.

“It was difficult at times to break down,” Warman added.
While the Pioneers’ defense was stout, the Cubs managed to find weak spots.
