Sophomore Sophia Pagnotta of Sehome High School scored two goals in the Mariners’ 3-1 Northwest Conference win over Lynden Christian on Thursday, Oct. 20, at Phillips 66 Soccer Park.
Sehome allowed an early goal to Lynden Christian’s Libby Hielkema in the 17th minute, but Pagnotta took control from there. Her first goal came on an assist by Katie Perkins in the 33rd minute, and her second was on an assist by Fiona Dawson in the 42nd minute.
Dawson added the final goal 10 minutes later as the Mariners had 15 shots on goal compared with the Lions’ five. Now, Sehome coach Andria Fountain is looking ahead to Monday, Oct. 24, when her team hosts Ferndale.
“It’s a big matchup and it’s Senior Night, so I hope our seniors bring it,” Fountain said.
