The Seabury Academy girls soccer team made the most of a bizarre situation Thursday, earning its first victory of the season with a 4-0 shutout against Flint Hills Christian.
The visitors arrived with just eight players, and down four goals at the break, asked the game referee to shorten the second half by 10 minutes.
Early in the 30-minute period, the Flint Hills coach pulled her team off the field after hearing a Seabury player use an expletive on the field, and the Seahawks were awarded the victory.
Senior Laura Hoffman scored her first career goal for Seabury (1-3). Ashley Tomassian, Regan Sisson and Melissa Burch added goals for the Seahawks.
"Having success on the day is good. You take them how you can get them," said Seabury coach Gunar Harmon.
"It's still an ongoing process. It's a continuation from a standpoint that we're still trying to get better."
Seabury will return to action next Friday at home against De Soto.
