El Cajon, Calif. --In a season of highs and lows, the San Diego Christian College men’s soccer team finished their season on a high after knocking off Bethesda University of California in overtime 3-2 on Tuesday afternoon. The win helped the Hawks end with confidence after taking the final two games of the season.

“This was a great win for us,” said Assistant Coach Donald Laing. “We lost a lot of close games, so it was nice for the guys to see the hard work pay off with a victory.

BUC struck first in the 33rd minute to jump up 1-0 on a shot just outside of the box.

SDCC responded when when a shot by Victor Flores was batted down by a BUC defender's hand in the box, setting up a penalty kick for Leandro Vianna. Vianna promptly placed the ball in the back of the net to knot the game at 1-1.

SDCC’s second goal came when Jordan Abad hit Justin Picou down the left side of the box. Picou dribbled and passed to Emmanuel Onywera who snuck the ball past the goalkeeper to put the Hawks up 2-1.

The Flames scratched a goal in the final minute of regulation to send the game to overtime.

In the overtime period, SDCC took the game when goalkeeper Alex Cozzi saved a BUC shot and fired the ball down the left to Salvador Velesquez. Velesquez dribbled past midfield and delivered a pass down the middle to a streaking Onywera who knocked it past the keeper for the game winner.

The Hawks conclude their season at 5-11-1.

“It is good to end the season with a pair of wins,” said Head Coach Carlos Calderson. “We showed that we can do it, we just need to start playing this well earlier in the year. This is a nice confidence boost moving forward.”
