Chief Sealth dominates West Seattle 12-0 in boys soccer
It was déjà vu for cross-town soccer rivals on April 10 as the West Seattle High School Wildcats hosted the Chief Sealth International High School Seahawks.
Sealth took control from the opening whistle and rarely let the Wildcats into their defensive half as they handily won 12-0. Sealth beat West Seattle 10-0 in their meeting earlier this year.

Seahawk Abel Madrigal opened the onslaught in the fourth minute, added a second five minutes later, and 14 minutes into the first half Sealth was up 4-0, a serious lead in the game of soccer.
The Wildcats were burned by loose defensive marking throughout the match as Sealth fluidly worked the ball inside and out with relative impunity, creating dangerous crosses, flicks and outside shots.
West Seattle exhibited brief moments of flair with a few threatening through balls that nearly resulted in scoring chances, but for the most part were unable to maintain possession long enough to create a sustained attack on Sealth goalkeepers Kristian Nilssen (in the first half) and Luis Ramirez (in the second half).
It was 7-0 at halftime and five second half goals put the final tally at 12.
The win keeps Chief Sealth undefeated at 9 wins and 0 losses (league play) with five games remaining in the season. They are leading the Metro League and take on Franklin March 12 at 3:30 (away game).
The Wildcats take on Cleveland in an away game on March 12, 3:30 p.m.
