The Orcas struck first with a goal in the 59th minute. They doubled their lead in the 65th minute. Shoreline answered right back. A corner kick from Yovanni Martinez fell to the feet of Mike Mercado who blasted the ball to the back of the net. However, the goal was disallowed after the line judge deemed the ball had gone through the side netting.

In the 74th minute Jerry Reyes-Ortega saved an Orcas penalty (earned by a questionable yellow card on Shoreline GK) only to see the Orcas react first to the ball and push their lead to 0-3. Shoreline would pull a goal back in the 81st minute as fittingly Mike Mercado finished a corner. It wasn’t enough as Whatcom would leave with a 1-3 victory.

The Phins remain one point behind Edmonds for the final playoff spot in the North region. Next up for Men’s soccer is a home clash with NWAC #2 Peninsula College at 2:45pm on Wednesday, September 30th.
