Seattle Pacific soccer easily dispatches Saint Martin’s, 3-0

Redshirt freshman defender Davis Karaica, a former Mount Si standout, opened the scoring just over seven minutes after halftime, converting a corner kick from the right side by Kollars.

Sophomore Matt Merchant capped the scoring in the 88th minute on a penalty kick.
Saint Martin’s (3-7-1) dropped to 3-3-1 in GNAC play.
