ARLINGTON — Arlington’s Seigo Hall scored on a penalty kick in the 23rd minute and the Eagles held on to beat playoff-bound Mount Vernon in a Wesco 4A North match.
The Bulldogs, coming off a shock win against Snohomish, managed 15 shots, but couldn’t get one past the Arlington defense and goalkeeper Nick McDonald.
“The boys buckled down and played hard-nosed pressure D,” Eagles head coach Mike Gudgeon said. “They made it difficult for Mount Vernon to get clean looks.”
Sophomore midfielder Aaron Paloalto drew the penalty that Hall converted.
