SLIDESHOW: Rams struggle, early, against Spanaway Lake, in district soccer playoff, but, not, late, to make state
By Ed Shepherd
It was one of the more incredible comebacks one will ever see in the game of soccer.
Mount Rainier trailed, 1-0, as Spanaway Lake scored a goal with 10 minutes to play in the game Thursday, but the Rams came back with two scores in the final six minutes for a rousing state-qualifying 2-1 win over the Sentinels in a WIAA District 3 4A playoff at Curtis High School.
"Don't see it too often," said Rams coach Steve Mohn, asked to recall any ending like that in his soccer days. "One of the better games I've been in, as a player or a coach."
Mohn's seen a lot of soccer action, too, as a player, having played on the University of W ashington men's soccer team, helping them get to the second round of the NCAA college tournament his junior and senior seasons. And Mohn's also the coach of the Highline Community College men's soccer team now.
The Rams won the South Puget Sound League Northwest Division with an 8-4-1 record and won eight of their last nine. And the one non-win wasn't a loss but a tie.More ›
