San Diego Christian College traveled to Biola for both team’s second conference game of the season. Thanks to two goals scored in the first half, Biola left the field with their first Golden State Athletic Conference victory of the season.

Teamwork

Nine minutes into the game, senior defender Carlos Cristhian Aparicio scored his first goal of the season. The goal came off of a through ball from senior midfielder John Hascom that Aparicio fired to the back post.  

The Eagles added onto their lead 20 minutes after their first goal. Sophomore forward Keaton Kerr set up senior midfielder Joey O’Keefe, who powered the ball past the Hawk’s goalkeeper. O’keefe leads the team with five goals scored this season.

Saving Shots
