Seaman soccer extended its winning streak to three games Thursday night as senior Pablo Font scored both goals in a 2-0 home Centennial League win over Highland Park.
The Vikings are hot as of late after a rocky start to the season and it’s obvious that Seaman's spirits are high and the Vikes have momentum.
The Seaman defense has shut out its last three opponents and coach Jacob Kirmer likes the way the Vikings defense has played lately.
“The defense has been more consistent and working together,'' he said.
Seaman’s offense also continues to show improvement, led by the likes of Gavin Wilhelm, Font and others.
“We have started playing together as a team,'' Kirmer said. "We’ve moved the ball well and haven’t faced any issues on the offensive side of the ball.”
Font scored both his goals in the first half, with his first goal off an assist from freshman Kaelin Loy and his second score off a pass from senior Justin Kruse.
The Vikings' successful defensive outing was led by junior goalkeeper Ayden Thompson.
The second half lasted just about ten minutes before the game entered a rain delay with lightning strikes affecting the area.
After 50 minutes of delays, the game was called due to the storm.
Seaman improved to 4-7 on the season while Highland Park fell to 1-8-1 on the year.
