The Sehome boys' soccer team opened its game against Mount Baker with three goals in the first 19 minutes, finally defeating the Mountaineers 4-0 on Tuesday, April 9, at Mount Baker in a Northwest Conference league match.
The offensive surge was a welcome sight to Sehome coach John Sylvester.
"Right from the warmups, I said to the guys, 'If you knock the ball around like that, you'll have some success," Sylvester said in a phone interview. "It was really necessary to have a game where we really clicked, and everyone played well."
Johan Lahud-Zahner scored twice while Charles Linneman added a goal and an assist.
"Johan made a big difference for us," Sylvester said. "He just ran around like crazy, and he just had a good game."
Sehome (4-5-1, 2-4 NWC) travels to Bellingham for a Northwest Conference game Thursday, April 11, while Mount Baker (4-5-0, 1-4 NWC) hosts Lynden.
