Men’s Soccer Wins NWAC Championship

Defeats Whatcom 4-3 in Thriller

“That was about as good of a game
as it gets in a championship”
Highline Head Coach Steve Mohn

Nov. 14, 2021 – it was truly a contest worthy of a championship game, seeming to have a little of everything. A steady, wind-blown rain from a slate gray sky provided the atmosphere and the play provided the drama. There were exquisite passes, keepers making lunging saves, players slipping at key times on the wet turf, physical and at times chippy play (Whatcom with five yellow cards), shots clanging off crossbars, a penalty kick, a disallowed goal later allowed (it wasn’t offsides),  comebacks by both teams, and a winning goal by Highline’s Alex Velasco, assisted by Jesus Jeronimo in the 88th minute.
The championship is Highline’s third in the last seven years, following titles in 2014 and 2017, all under Head Coach Steve Mohn.
