Casey Regruth, Staff Writer

Seymour’s boys soccer team tied the Oldenburg Twisters 0-0 on Saturday.

Although it ended scoreless, the game was far from dull. Seymour fired 17 shots compared to Oldenburg’s two, and yet the Owls were still unable to put the ball in the back of the net.

Seymour pinned the Twisters inside their own end of the field for nearly all of the first half. Of the Owls 17 shots, 10 were taken in the first 40 minutes.

Seymour’s best first half chance came from a corner kick taken by junior midfielder Carter Hendrix. The junior’s corner kick was redirected on frame by senior Simon Akers. Oldenburg goalkeeper Noah Schmahl got a hand to the shot and knocked in back into play. Seymour then fired several shots, but the Twisters defense was able to keep the ball from rolling in.

The second half was similar to the first. Seymour was dominant throughout, but the final product was missing. The Owls’ best chance of the second half came from junior Isaac Schafer. As the ball came in from a cross, Schafer rose above the rest and flicked the ball on frame with his head. Another nice save from keeper Noah Schmahl kept the scores level.

Late in the game, play was stopped when Seymour’s Akers and Oldenburg’s Nick Folop got tangled up after a foul. Each player received a red card for his actions and was dismissed from the game.

Owls JV won 4-0. Goals were scored by sophomore Will Cottrill, sophomore Alfredo Gaspar, sophomore Kevin Cervantes, and freshman Sotaro Miyagawa.
