ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

BY GERARDO BOLONG

Tough defense and total team contributions boosted the West Seattle Wildcats to a 1-0 3A Metro League boys soccer against rival Chief Sealth on Mon., April 24, at the Southwest Athletic Complex.

The Wildcats improved to 5-2-5 while the home team Seahawks dropped to 4-7 in league.
"We played scrappy," said West Seattle head coach Kyle Nothstein. "There was good defense. The team kept good poise. Everybody who was on the field contributed and gave their hearts into the effort. They left everything on the field."

Both teams went at each other strongly and evenly from the beginning with quick burst attacks, but lacking good ground passing.

Chief Sealth organized its passing and spacing after relying on sideline runs to set up numerous cross passes that were not picked up for shots as it held field position.

West Seattle actually delivered the more dangerous scoring attempts despite being on its heels for long periods.

After the middle of the first half, the Wildcats got off their heels to start pouring passes into Chief Sealth territory., nearly scoring just before intermission.
