Seahawks defeat Lancaster 5-2

The St. Clare Walker (SCW) Middle School soccer team continued to build with its second set of games. The Seahawks recently played Lancaster Middle School and Aylett Country Day School.

During the Lancaster game the Seahawks passed the ball effectively and were able to finish consistently on the goal en route to a 5-2 win. The team was led by the defense of juggernauts Connor Bishop and Carter Beam. Additionally, James Farmer and Owen Smiley did an effective job keeping the ball wide during the game. The goals in the game were scored by Peyton Lambert, Carter Beam, and Nielsen “Noodle” McMinn.

“I think the coolest moment in the game was watching Cameron Lambert take a corner kick and connecting with his brother Peyton for the third goal of the match,” said SCW coach Clark Laster.

During the Lancaster game, the developmental squad got extended playing time because of how well it was working together. Jaden Hogge and Riley Dean were able to help push the ball forward.

In the second game of the week, the Seahawks once again faced Aylett. For the second time, Aylett won 2-0.  The first goal was scored off of a breakaway and the second goal was scored from about 30 yards out at the top corner of the goal. “Both were great shots,” said Coach Laster. “We were unlucky with the placement of our shots but they did control the ball for about 85% of the game. Credit their coach for a solid game plan. 

“Passing is a key skill for players at this level,” said Coach Laster. “So often you see them wanting to run up the field and score. If they can learn to pass now the next level will come more easily.” 

“Trust the process,” said assistant coach Mitch Curtiss, “You might not see immediate success, but you will see it long term.”

The Seahawks final home game will be against Northumberland on Tuesday, October 16. The Seahawks will be at Lancaster on Thursday, October 18. “We hope to see fans come out and enjoy the game,” said Coach Laster.
