From www.GoSeattleU.com: Senior Andrew Kreiter (Billings, Mont.) and sophomore Sean Morris (Bothell, Wash.) each earned a goal and an assist as the Seattle University men’s soccer team took the early lead and held on to defeat Seattle Pacific, 3-1, Tuesday night at Interbay Stadium.

Seattle University jumped on the board first just over five minutes into the match as Kreiter received a pass from Morris in stride as he was trailing the play down the left side of the field. His crossing pass reached Kyle Peterman (Boise, Idaho), whose shot beat Seattle Pacific goalie Ben Lovelace for his fourth goal of the season.

The Redhawks continued to pressure the Falcon defense in the first half, earning several chances as the half went along. After Seattle Pacific was called for a foul with just over 15 minutes left in the half, Morris bent in a free kick from the left side into the net for his second goal of the season. Just over three minutes later, Kreiter blasted a shot from the top of the box into the right corner for his third tally of the season.

Seattle Pacific (4-6-3) came out of the locker room after halftime more aggressive, challenging the Seattle University defense several times. The Falcons broke through with just over 18 minutes remaining in the second half, as Enis Isufi was able to convert a crossing pass from Elliot Morton from close range to cut the Redhawk lead to two.

Emerson DeOliveira (Normandy Park, Wash.) finished with three saves to pick up his fourth victory of the season. Lovelace made four saves in the first half for the Falcons, while relief goalie Kaleb Kuehn did not need to make a save in the second half. Seattle University finished with 14 shots, seven of them on goal, while four of the Falcons’ 12 shots were on goal.

Seattle University (7-3-1) heads south to face the University of Portland Friday, Oct. 17, beginning at 4:30 p.m. After a two-week layoff, the Redhawks host Simon Fraser University in the final home match of the season Saturday, Nov. 1, beginning at 2:30 p.m. at Championship Field.
