Christan Nesslequist nailed the game-winning shot as Inglemoor defeated Newport on Saturday in a penalty-kick shootout in the opening round of the 4A Kingco Tournament. The game was 1-1 entering PKs, and the Vikings won, 9-8, in the shootout.
Newport took a 1-0 lead in the 12th minute, and Mehron Abdi equalized in the 52nd minute for Inglemoor.
Justin Li passed the ball to Abdi 25 yards out on the right side and he then dribbled to his left to the top of the 18-yard box and unleashed a shot that found the mark inside the far left post, according to coach Kevin McGibbon.
Goalkeeper James Takami made five saves, including two big ones in the last five minutes. He first went one on one with a Newport forward and knocked the ball off his foot. On the next save, he tipped a screaming Newport shot over the top of the cross bar.
Inglemoor will next play Issaquah at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Skyline High.
