A first-half hat trick by Martin Sebastian highlighted a comfortable 4-0 victory by Seymour’s boys soccer team over Jennings County on Thursday night.
Sebastian scored all three of his goals inside of a seven-minute stretch midway through the opening half.
The first two goals were the result of quality one-touch and through passing by David Polbito and Emilio Garcia. On the third score, Sebastian was the beneficiary of an excellent run and center pass by Martin Bartolome.
Seymour senior Sam Chandler capped the Owls’ scoring with 3:42 left before halftime when his 20-yard shot found the net on an assist by Jaret Dominguez.
