Anthony Peon, Seaside soccer

Seaside’s Anthony Peon, left, and Hidden Valley’s Ronan Hodge battle for the ball in last Saturday’s play-in game.

Hidden Valley scored for an early lead, then tacked on two second half goals for a 3-0 win last Saturday afternoon over Seaside in a 4A boys soccer state qualifier play-in game.

The Gulls finish 5-7-1 overall, while the No. 8-ranked Mustangs (10-4) advance to the round of 16, where they were set to play at Marshfield.

Hidden Valley had three goals wiped out by offsides penalties, but dominated both time of possession and shots on goal, as Seaside finished with just one shot attempt for the game.

Leading 1-0 at halftime, the Mustangs increased their lead to 2-nil in the 12th minute of the second half, as sophomore Mason Klipfel scored from close range in front of the net, off passes from Roman Hodge and Theo Bergman.

Seaside goalkeeper Riley Wunderlich had several big saves in goal to keep the Gulls within striking distance, but Hidden Valley’s Joaquin Martinez made it 3-0 with just 2:45 left, scoring at the left post off a crossing pass from Conner Wright.
