SEATTLE - Goals from Noe Meza and Hal Uderitz produced a 2-1 victory for Seattle University men’s soccer over Air Force Friday night at Championship Field. 

"It was good to get a win and stay in first (in the WAC standings)," said Coach Pete Fewing. "We scored two excellent goals that came out strong buildups. Air Force is a tough team to play."

The Redhawks remain undefeated in their last eight games, including seven in WAC play, and stay on top of the WAC standings going into the final stretch of the regular season. 

The attacking pressure from Seattle U (9-3-3, 6-0-1 WAC) broke down the Falcons midfield through penetrating passes to James Morris and Declan McGlynn. SU created 24 shots on the night to force ten saves out of the Air Force keeper.

Meza chipped in his seventh of the campaign 90 seconds before the halftime break. McGlynn found Uderitz on the left side who settled himself and curled in a cross to the middle of the box, where Meza rounded his man and glanced a header to the far post to give the Redhawks a 1-0 advantage. 

Meza and McGlynn both lead the Redhawks with seven goals a piece, followed by Morris with six.

With the Falcons (5-6-0, 4-3-0 WAC) upping their offensive intensity 15 minutes into the second half of play, McGlynn found a streaking Burke Fahling on the right side. Fahling took his defender one-one-one and placed a cross to a wide open Uderitz on the far post who gave the ball a nod to double the SU lead in the 65th minute.

Goalkeeper Akili Kasim tallied three saves and anchored the steady tandem of Nkosi Burgess and Alex Acton-Petronotis to carry out the Redhawks win.

With a nine game unbeaten streak up for grabs, Seattle U takes on Utah Valley Sunday, Oct. 27 at Championship Field. Kick-off is set at 1:00 pm.
