Seaton, who turned 17 this week, played all 90 minutes. Three others on loan from United appeared in the match as well: goalkeeper Andrew Dykstra (90), central defender Conor Shanosky (90) and left back Taylor Kemp (10). Forward Casey Townsend sat out for the Kickers (3-0-1), who will host the Charlotte Eagles (2-0-2) at 7 tonight at City Stadium.
