Less than 24 hours after an emotional win over Blaine in a shootout, the Lynden Christian girls' soccer team went up against King's in the Class 1A Northwest District championship game and lost 3-0 on Saturday, Oct. 27, in Seattle.
The loss dropped the Lyncs to 11-7-1 overall.
"I thought for coming off a tough emotional match on Friday, our girls responded really well," Lynden Christian coach Brent De Ruyter said in a phone interview. "(King's) was really opportunistic. King's just capitalized on tiny details."
King's took a 1-0 lead in the 21st minute and later led 2-0 in the 39th minute. An own goal by the Lyncs in the second half completed the scoring. The Lyncs were only outshot six to four in the game.
"We learned a lot of things in the 80 minutes and hopefully we can take those into Tuesday," De Ruyter said.
Lynden Christian next plays in a loser-out tri-district game at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 30, at Whatcom Community College against Seattle Academy.
