Squalicum bounces back after 49-game unbeaten streak ends

Payton Fowler scored the lone goal for Squalicum as the Storm took care of Stanwood 1-0 on Saturday, Sept. 10, at Phillips 66 Soccer Park.

Fowler got the ball about 30 yards away and danced around two Stanwood defenders before touching it past the diving keeper. Squalicum had plenty of chances to score as it racked up 22 shots on goal, but Fowler’s was the difference.

Squalicum rebounded after its 49-game unbeaten streak was snapped by Sehome on Thursday. Coach Jose Rodriguez said it was nice to see his team playing together.

“We possessed the ball pretty well,” Rodriguez said. “We’re starting to find each other a bit more.”
