Tritons Take One from the Trojans

Tritons Take One from the Trojans

In the third and final regular season match between the two schools, Edmonds was able to take three points from EvCC by a final score of 1-0.  The Trojans defeated the Tritons on two earlier occasions this season, and were going for their second straight year of sweeping their rivals.

The first half was evenly played, with a slight edge to EvCC with possession and offensive pressure.  Everett tallied 9 shots, 4 on target and all 4 saved by the Edmonds goal keeper.  Edmonds got off 6 shots, and only one on target until the final moments of the first half when an Edmonds corner kick was sent into the box, and a controversial header by Hector Palomera coming through the body and arms of Everett goalkeeper found the back of the net.  After a brief consult with the assistant referee, the goal was awarded to end the half.  

The 2nd half was completely dominated by EvCC with 8 shots to Edmonds 0.  However none of the shots were able to get home and the Tritons escaped with the 1-0 win.  

With the loss Everett falls to 8 points back out of second place, however this week presents a great opportunity to make up ground.  They go on the road to face 2nd place Peninsula on Wednesday, and are at 1st place Whatcom on Saturday.
