Michael Steele scored a hat trick to lead the Ferndale boys' soccer team to a 5-3 win at Sehome in a Northwest Conference match Thursday, March 28.
Steele scored in the 22nd minute, the 32nd minute and the 58th minute.
Jose Guttierez scored two goals for the Mariners (1-4-0 NWC, 2-5-1) and Gabe Weight added a third.
"The game was tight back and forth and both teams played really, really tough," Ferndale coach Scott Browne said in a phone interview. "We came out and wanted this game. We have been one goal from games all season long and it was time for us to break out."
Ferndale (1-5-0 NWC, 1-8-0) will host Blaine Tuesday, April 9, in a Northwest Conference match while Sehome travels to Mount Baker.
