The Cape Coral Seahawks put their unblemished record on the line against crosstown rival Mariner Tuesday night, even though records don't mean much in rivalry games.
Neither team disappointed, but the Seahawks came out on top 1-0 at Dave Warkentin Field.
Nathan Stone turned the corner and delivered a perfect cross into the box where Ronald Lind met the ball and buried it in the net for the game's only score in the first 10 minutes of the second half.
"Both teams had a lot of chances," said Seahawks coach Aldo Nardiello. "There were great saves by both keepers and it was a really good game."
The Seahawks had one shot hit the post and the Tritons had three clank off the post.
Seahawks keeper Santi Villamil made nine saves to record his seventh shutout in nine games.
The Seahawks (8-0-1, 5-0 district) play at Fort Myers Friday night. The Tritons (9-2-1, 4-1) host North Port Thursday.
Ida Baker 2, Fort Myers 0: Sophomore Filander Barahona and Winston Marin came through with goals in the second half to lift Ida Baker to victory over Fort Myers Tuesday.
Barahona's goal came with 15 minutes to play, followed by Marin's with five to go to seal it. Jed Cicoria assisted on both goals and goalkeeper Rush Manterola made eight saves, but none more crucial than a penalty kick in the first half.

Ida Baker 1, Fort Myers 1 (tie): Ida Baker gave up the tying goal with about 15 minutes remaining in the game and had to settle for their second tie of the season Tuesday.
Monique Elliott put the Bulldogs in the lead early in the second half on an unassisted goal.
"It was a clean game," said Bulldogs coach Dave Trepkowski. "It was unfortunate we gave up the tying goal. It was a so much better game than the first time. We had opportunities, but just didn't finish them."
Baker goalkeeper Amanda Kopale had just four saves, giving up the one goal on a cross into the box at close range.
