Lake Washington defeated Squalicum 2-1 after a penalty shootout in the Class 2A Bi-District Tournament championship game on Saturday, Nov. 9.
The Storm was successful on two of its four penalty kicks, while Lake Washington made its first four.
Squalicum had several opportunities in the first half, but was unable to find the net.
"We dominated the entire game," coach David Kish said in a phone interview. "We had some great opportunities in the first half that we didn't capitalize on."
Kim Dorr finally put Squalicum on the board in the 50th minute after a feed from Lizzy Herda.
Lake Washington equalized in the 78th minute off a free kick from Emily Bunnell.
"It shook us because we were so close to the final time," Kish said. "The girl's free kick was beautiful. No keeper could have saved the shot."
However, Kish doesn't think it should have been a foul in the first place.
"If anything, it was a foul on the other girl, but they got the call," Kish said.
Squalicum plays Hockinson at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at Civic Stadium.
"It would have been nice to get the trophy," Kish said. "But our bigger prize starts Tuesday."
