Jacob Sorenson scored the only goal of the game in the 76th minute to give Ferndale a 1-0 Northwest Conference win over Mount Baker on Tuesday, April 26.
Sorenson’s goal came off an assist from Carlos Padilla-Solis, who was playing on the right side of the field even though he’s left-footed. Coach Rigel Weis said his team had to work extremely hard to find a goal despite having 12 shots in the second half.
“It was a calm, collected finish,” Weis said. “It was good to see him be able to finish a great ball by Carlos. Jacob just made it count.”
