Overtime unkind to Pioneers men
Cal State Monterey Bay 2, CSUEB 1 OT
Javier Martin put Cal State East Bay ahead early on during its California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) road tilt with Cal State Monterey Bay. The Otters had the quick response and eventually avenged an earlier loss to the Pioneers after Servando Perez scored the golden goal 68 seconds into overtime.
ÒThis loss was a heartbreaker. We put in a strong performance today but unfortunately we didnÕt find a way to get a win,Ó said East Bay Head Coach Andy Cumbo. ÒWe played well and had our moments to win, but we just did not pull it out today.Ó
Martin scored his second goal in three games in the 11th minute to open the scoring. He received the pass from teammate Chris Franco who contributed a point for the second straight game, following his first goal of the season on Friday against San Francisco State.
Perez had a part in the equalizer providing the assist to teammate Juan Montellano less than three minutes later. Perez would eventually end things himself in first overtime period scoring his team-leading sixth goal of the season for the game-winner.
Both goalkeepers Bryce Bookhamer of Cal State East Bay and Evan Drake of Cal State Monterey Bay made three saves.
