[PDL: Playoffs]Sito Seoane's goal -- the third in three playoff games -- gave the host Austin Aztex a 1-0 victory over the Ocean City Nor’easters and moved it into Sunday's PDL championship game against the Thunder Bay Chill. Second-half goals by Sergio Campano Franco and Sullivan Silva gave the Chill a 2-0 victory over the Victoria Highlanders FC in the other match, an all-Canadian semifinal.
Seoane, who hails Spain via Miami and San Jacinto College, scored early in the second half to the delight of a crowd of 3,062 at House Park.
“The ball was bouncing, but I didn’t doubt it,” he said. “It’s awesome, tonight we’re going to enjoy it, but it’s not over, we’ve got one more game. Thunder Bay is a really good team, so we’re going to have to be ready.”
Thunder Bay will be making its third appearance in the final. It won in 2008 and lost to the Portland Timbers U-23s in 2010.
