SEMINOLE — Following a formula it has used for most of the season, Seminole started slowly and finished with a flurry in a win over Strawberry Crest in a 4A region quarterfinal. The Warhawks led 1-0 at halftime but scored four goals in a 12-minute span to start the second half.

Yann Cerf led Seminole with three goals. Gerard Corning, Tarik Salkicic, Garrett Bocon and Liam Murphy also scored for the Warhawks (16-3-2).

“It seems like we always mess up in the first half, then Coach gives us a speech and we do better in the second half,” Cerf said. “We just seem to be a second-half team. That’s when we pick it up.”

Cerf scored two minutes into the second half for a 2-0 cushion. Then Seminole rattled off three goals in five minutes.

“We could play with them,” said Chargers coach Scott Vomacka, whose team ends its season 7-7-3. “We felt we could win. We gave up the early goal, but we had a majority of the possession in the first half.

“But when you let in a goal in the first 90 seconds of each half, it just deflated our team quickly.”
