PREP SOCCER ROUNDUP: Second-half surge leads Storm past Cubs

Squalicum blew open its nonleague game with Sedro-Woolley, scoring four goals in the final 34 minutes to earn a 5-1 win over the Cubs on Saturday, March 19, in Sedro-Woolley.

Tyler Hughes scored twice and added an assist off a corner kick in the 13th minute and Eli Guidroz, Ben Peterson and Cole Nielsen each scored goals.

Squalicum actually trailed 1-0 early on, but the Storm’s shots began finding its marks in the second half, as Squalicum outshot Sedro-Woolley 22-6.

“The first half we had plenty of chances,” Squalicum coach Joe McAuliffe said. “I was a little concerned about playing four games in five days, but I was impressed. Tyler played with a lot of energy.”

Squalicum (3-1-0) opens Northwest Conference play next with a game against Nooksack Valley at 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 22, at Northwest Soccer Park.
