Wilmington, NC – Wilmington Hammerheads FC hosted the lone home match of their preseason schedule tonight at Legion Stadium versus the University of North Carolina Wilmington Seahawks. Hammerheads forward Cody Arnoux and midfielder Steven Miller led the team to a 2-0 victory of the Seahawks.

The Seahawks started with an opportunity in the box in the opening minutes, but the Hammerheads quickly followed with a header by forward Mickael Oliveira in the 13th minute that was within reach of the crossbar.

Hammerheads goalkeeper Quillan Roberts kept the Seahawks to a 2-0 deficit during the match, shutting down all 10 shots on goal. Seahawks midfielder David Sizemore had a close encounter with Roberts on the line in the 22nd minute, but was denied the opportunity to finish.
