Seymour gets first win
Seymour’s boys soccer team defeated visiting Silver Creek, 2-0, to pick up its first win of the season.
The Owls (1-3) scored both goals during a strong second-half performance. The first score came six minutes in when an Amir Morales cross from the right side eluded the grasp of Silver Creek goalie Luke Wilson, allowing Emilio Garcia to knock it into the net.
The second goal resulted from a penalty with 4:21 left on the clock. Morales had worked the ball into the penalty box from the left side when he was taken down by an SC defender. The Seymour senior then succeeded on the penalty shot.
Defensively, the Owls denied Silver Creek (1-3) a shot throughout the match, allowing goalkeeper Will Smith to record the shutout.
In combination with his team’s encouraging showing on Saturday (a 2-0 loss to a strong Bloomington South squad) Seymour head coach Matt Dennis enjoyed Tuesday’s result.
“I told the boys that’s something to build on,” Dennis said. “I’m really proud of the second half. We played much better and put ourselves in better position. That’s the first time in eight halves that we can leave the field saying we’ve got some promise, we’ve got some progress. We need to find a way to play 80 minutes because with our schedule we need 80 minutes every night. We can’t just play 40.”
