How It Happened

  • St. Mary's College started the first half by dominating possession on their offensive end of the field. The Seahawks continued to create superb scoring chances but struggled to finish. Jacob Breslauer finally put the Seahawks on the scoreboard when he found the back of the net off a corner with just 13 seconds remaining in the opening half. Owen Smith sent the ball into the box and was credited with the assist.

  • The second half of action was similar to the first with the Seahawks controlling offensive possession and firing off shots at an impressive rate. St. Mary's College extended their lead to two when Roshawn Panton placed a shot past the opposing goalkeeper in front of the cage in the 69th minute. Lastly, the Seahawks tacked on another goal for good measure in the 84th minute when Zack Glime blasted a shot into the back of the net. Jack Eskay was credited with the assist.

Inside the Box Score

  • The Seahawks received goals from three different goal scorers this evening as Breslauer, Panton, and Glime tallied goals. Breslauer and Glime recorded their first goals of the season in the contest, while Panton notched his 10th. Panton's 10 goals are good for second on the team and second in the conference. In goal, Cristian Reyes and Patrick Paolini split time and collected one save each.
