The Biola University men’s soccer team picked up a significant win at Kennelly Field when they played against Dominican, winning 3-2, increasing their record among the PacWest conference to 3-0. This win now has Biola poised as the team to beat in the PacWest and are riding a three-game winning streak to bring their overall record through 10 games to 4-3-3 and above .500.


Biola was on the attack early in the game, amassing seven shots on goal within the first six minutes. Persistence paid off as with just over 30 minutes in the first half, freshman midfielder Ethan Hardin netted a goal to put Biola on the board. From here, the scoring picked up as Dominican tied the game on a penalty kick at the 32 minute mark. 

Biola broke the tie with a shot from redshirt sophomore forward Adam Jones who came off the bench and brought the score to 2-1. In the last 10 minutes, Biola held Dominican scoreless and entered halftime with a 2-1 lead. 

The second half opened with multiple fouls and offside calls against Biola giving Dominican chances to knot up the score; after 25 minutes of standstill Dominican’s Brian Sanchez did just that off a penalty kick making the score 2-2.

The final score in the game would not arrive until the 81st minute, before which Biola launched five more shots, two of them being on goal, all of which were saved by Dominican’s goalie, Alejandro Reyes. At last, junior forward Kristian Colaci scored to make the score 3-2 and prevented Dominican from advancing the soccer ball the rest of the game. 

Colaci brought his total goals on the season to nine goals in ten games, averaging nearly a score a game. Biola’s win against Dominican put the Eagles at the top of the PacWest conference with three wins and no losses. 

Biola continues conference play when they host Point Loma on Oct. 12. at 7 p.m.
