Sebastian Brems scored his second goal in as many games to help lead Azul PDL to a 2-1 win over Seacoast United Phantoms on Sunday at Portsmouth High School.

Brems, who also tallied in Friday’s 2-2 draw vs. Western Mass, put the guests on the board in the 25th minute. The Phantoms responded via Ben Brewester in the 70th minute, but the match didn’t stay level for long, as Eddie Boggle scored the game-winner in the 72nd minute.

With the win, the Azul sit atop the Northeast Division standings with a 1-0-1 (4 points) record, while the Phantoms suffered their first loss of the season (1-1-0).

The Azul return to action on Saturday against the Vermont Voltage at Applejack Field. Kickoff is set for 6pm. The Phantoms will host the Montreal Impact U-23s at 7pm on Friday at Portsmouth High School.
