SLIDESHOW: Sealth and Roosevelt have tying down cold

With a freezing wind that pushed temperatures close to arctic conditions the Chief Sealth Seahawks and Roosevelt Roughriders played to a 0-0 tie at the SWAC on Wednesday, March 20.

The wind blew hard south to north, the direction of the pitch. So the defender of the north goal was at a distinct disadvantage. The ball would sail farther and faster. The plus for the goalie was if a ball was kicked too hard it would sail over the goal. However neither team could take advantage of this. Sealth came close late in the game but just missed by inches.

Both teams played good defense allowing just a handful of shots on goal apiece. Each team had a penalty shot, Roosevelt in the first half and Sealth in the second. As it turned out both were at the north goal and went high over the crossbar. The match ended in a 0-0 tie.

Sealth goes on the road to Ingraham on Thursday the 21st. Game time is 7:30.
