Two goals is all the Cape Coral Seahawks needed Wednesday night.
Winston Marin and Diego Silva accounted for the goals giving the Seahawks a 2-0 District 3A-11 victory over Cypress Lake to finish their district schedule with the No. 1 seeding for the district tournament at 6-0. The Seahawks have not lost a district game in three seasons.
Oscar Camacho scored off an assist from Jonathan Jimenez to put the Seahawks up 1-0 in the first half. Juan Cano stole the ball and beat the Panthers keeper one-on-one late in the second half for the insurance goal. Goalkeeper Alex Collazo made eight saves, including one penalty kick, to preserve the shutout, the eighth of the season for the Seahawks (12-1-1, 6-0 district). The penalty kick would have tied the game 1-1 at the time.

Barron Collier 3, Ida Baker 2: Collier scored the game-winning goal with about seven minutes to play to edge district rival Ida Baker Tuesday night.
Winston Marin, with an assist from Landon Day, and Diego Silva, on an assist from Alex Crispin, accounted for the Bulldogs' goals. The Bulldogs tied the game 1-1 and 2-2.
"We pressured them all night," said Bulldogs coach Scott Wills. "We played very well even though we were shorthanded due to injuries to key starters. We had chances, but our field is pretty torn up because of the rain."
Trey Crispin made seven saves in net for the Bulldogs (5-6-1, 2-4-1 district), who play at Gulf Coast Wednesday.
Mariner 62, Island Coast 61, OT: Another barn-burner for these city rivals with Mariner launching a second-half comeback to erase a 21-point deficit to beat Island Coast in overtime Tuesday night.
Trailing by 21 points with 5 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter, the Tritons got back in the game in a hurry, taking their first lead just before the final buzzer. Island Coast's Morgan Foreman's three-point basket tied the game at the end of regulation.
The Tritons outscored the Gators 26-13 in the final period and overtime to win the game.
"We made 18 turnovers in the second half," said Gators coach Greg Coleman. "We had a chance to put the game on ice, but instead we continued to drive the lane. Mariner took six charges (fouls) in the second half after none in the first half. They made that adjustment at halftime."
Angel Inchausti led the Gators with a game-high 25 points, but scores just two points after the four-minute mark of the third quarter. Sonel Mathurin grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds.
"Mike Patton came off the bench and put the defense on Angel," said Tritons coach James Harris. "He had seven points and shut down Angel, who hurt on us earlier."
Rick Moore topped the Tritons with 22 points and seven rebounds while Rodney Hunter added 18 points and Mario Blissett finished with six rebounds.
"When you are down 21 points you just want to cut the lead in half," said Harris."We did not lead until the end of regulation, then Blissett hit the game-winning free throw with six seconds left in overtime. It was just a great team win."
The Gators (4-5) host Ida Baker while the Tritons (6-4) play at South Fort Myers on Friday.
