West Seattle raided by Nathan Hale 5-1

Two teams fighting for the middle of the pack face off at Hiawatha Field in the rain and sleet.

West Seattle scored first in the eighteenth minute by a shot in front of the goal. #5 Luis Santiago took advantage of a crowd that hid him from Nathan Hale’s goalie to sneak the ball into the net. A few minutes later Santiago nearly scored again but the ball was covered by Raider goalie Stuart Long.

The half ended with a 1-0 Wildcat lead, but that was short lived when in the first five minutes of the second half the Raiders scored twice to go up 2-1.

The Raiders added two more offensive strikes and a penalty kick just before time expired to win 5-1.

The Wildcats will play again March 26th when they travel to Rainier Beach.
