TACOMA, WA— The Tacoma Stars Reserves beat the Snohomish Skyhawks 6-3 on Saturday night January 6 at the Tacoma Soccer Center. TSR used an early goal spree to get the win and take control of second place in the WISL table.

Mark Lee, Eddie Na and Lucas Dourado all scored for TSR in the first quarter in building a 3-0 lead for the home side. It was 4-0 for Tacoma in the second quarter on a goal from JJ Schmeck before the Skyhawks could answer back. They did so on a strike from Devin Shull and  it was 4-1 at halftime.

The Skyhawks countered with a second goal from Devin Shull and a capper in the late stages on a penalty kick conversion from Tye Hastings. It wasn’t nearly enough for the visitors and Tacoma won it, 6-3.
