Highline Men’s Soccer Earns Third Star with 1-0 win over Whatcom in NWAC Final

By Eric Trent for the NWAC

TUKWILA – Facing the top offense in the NWAC, Highline scored in the second half and stymied the No. 11 nationally ranked Whatcom Orcas to earn its third title in school history.

In the 58th minute, Highline’s freshman forward Dane Evanger came flying into the penalty box, picked up a rebound and booted a laser from 14 yards out that flew through a pack of Whatcom defenders and into the back of the net to give the Thunderbirds their game-winning shot.

Evanger was named the Thunderbirds’ Most Inspirational Player.

Highline previously won in 2004, when current coach Steve Mohn was a player, then again in 2014 while Mohn was the coach.

“It’s incredible,” Mohn said. “It’s cool to be on both sides of it. I know right where these guys have been and want to go.”

Down 1-0, Whatcom went on a ferocious offensive attack in the final 10 minutes, unleashing a frenzy of shots in hopes connecting on one, each being blocked by Thunderbird keeper Akili Kasim.

“Hats off to [Whatcom,’]” Mohn said. “We had to pull a little bit extra out of our hat in that last 10 minutes to keep them from scoring.”

Kasim, a freshman, was named tournament MVP after securing 4 saves.

“What helps it is the women won as well,” Kasim said. “That makes it three times better. My emotions are indescribable right now. I felt it was really deserving that we both won. The whole year we’ve been fighting. I can say that for the women’s team as well.”

Kasim’s saves, especially in the final 10 minutes, were instrumental in Highline’s victory.

One save was a rocket that Kasim threw his arm up vertically and deflected the ball, which ricocheted out of the goal box.

The Highline women also won, 1-0, making this year’s men’s and women’s team the third school and fourth time in NWAC history to have both the men’s and women’s soccer teams win the same year.

Peninsula was the last to do it in 2012 and 2013, while Columbia Basin men and women were the first in 1999.

Highline men’s soccer, (14-1-3) the No. 1 seed in the West Region, came in with the top defense in the NWAC, allowing only 11 goals on the season, including 8 shutouts.

While Whatcom, (18-1-3) the No. 1 seed in the North Region, and ranked No. 11 in the national junior college men’s soccer rankings, rode an 8-game win streak into the title game.

This matchup also featured the North-West Region Coaches of the year; Whatcom’s Jason Jorgensen, and Highline’s Mohn.

Highline vanquished Columbia Basin, 2-1, on penalty kicks (4-3) in the quarterfinals, then thumped Walla Walla, 4-1, in the Final Four.

“I told the guys at the beginning of the year, and the beginning of the playoff run, that you need something special to win championships,” Mohn said. “That last 10 minutes was special from us as a group.”

Highline Women’s Soccer Captures Second NWAC Championship

By Eric Trent

TUKWILA –  After playing through a scoreless tie the entire match, Highline coach Tom Moore told his players one thing in the overtime huddle.

‘Give us one chance and the game’s over,’” Moore said.

“And it worked,” he said.

Only 1:18 into overtime, Highline defender Bella Keane tossed the ball in from the sideline, to teammate Fiona Dawson, who bounced it off her chest at the penalty area and into a crowd of two Peninsula players and sophomore forward Jewel Boland.

The ball trickled out behind the three and rolled toward the goal box.

Boland turned around, found herself with a clear shot on goal and blasted the ball just below the crossbar into the back of the net to help Highline capture its second NWAC women’s soccer championship.

Boland, who was named tournament MVP, was bum-rushed by her teammates.

“I feel like we played amazing,” Boland. “I feel like every one of us played our best games. Everything was left on the field. I’m just so proud of everybody.”
This was a rematch of last year’s championship where Peninsula won, 1-0, in double overtime.

After finishing as runner-ups the past two years, this title was especially rewarding, Moore said.

“We were so focused,” said Moore. “We went through so much adversity this year, I couldn’t even explain it to you. This game meant so much more than just ‘the game.’ There wasn’t much that was going to stop us.”

Peninsula (20-1-0) and Highline (18-0-2) entered as the top-two scoring offenses in the NWAC, and the top-two defenses.

The Thunderbirds win snapped the Pirates’ nation-leading 38-game win streak.

Highline came in boasting a vicious defense, allowing only 5 goals the entire season, including 15 shutouts, both tops in the NWAC.

Peninsula, the No. 1 seed in the North Region, and ranked No. 4 nationally, came in as the top scoring offense of all-time in NWAC history with 142 goals this season, shattering the previous record of 129 set by Walla Walla in 2007, in 24 matches.

Highline, the No. 1 seed in the West Region, and ranked No. 8 nationally, shutout Spokane, 3-0, in the quarterfinals, then downed Clark, 3-2, on penalty kicks (4-3.)

Boland said they persevered, despite the adversity they faced this season.
“We’ve been playing for so much,” Boland said. “We’ve gone through ups and downs and individual battles. I think we just had heart.”

Moore said he’s glad they played Peninsula. They’re his favorite matchup.

“I love playing [Peninsula] because that’s the matchup,” Moore said. ‘If we could do it every year, I would do it. All the games leading up to it are great, but this is the game.”

Jewel Boland and named MVP while Tori Morton was tabbed Most Inspirational Player.
