The Seahawks added a second goal late in the first half and those goals survived through the second half for a 2-0 victory over the Tritons.

Goalkeeper Santi Villamil made 17 saves to preserve the Seahawks' 12th shutout win of the season.

Kevin Lopera scored on the penalty kick for the Seahawks while Nathan Stone got the second goal off an assist from Juan Cano.
