13 Oct , 2017 Sports

Dixie State’s men’s soccer team netted a pair of late second-half goals to rally past Academy of Art, 2-1, on Thursday afternoon at San Jose State’s CEFCU Stadium. The match was relocated from San Francisco to the SJSU campus due to poor air quality as a result of the wildfires in Northern California.

After a scoreless opening 45 minutes of play, the Urban Knights (3-7-4, 2-4-0 PacWest) broke through late in the 58th minute on a Christian Sprague shot from 20 yards out. DSU (9-2-0, 5-2-0 PacWest) answered with the equalizer nearly 22 minutes later when a Moises Medina shot was deflected to Jandir Porta, who managed to get the ball past the keeper and into the goal to square the match at 1-1.

Medina gave the Trailblazers the lead for good with 5:50 remaining in regulation when he finished a ball played in by his older brother Gabby Medina from the top of the box for his team-leading sixth goal of the season. Dixie State held AAU to just one shot on goal the rest of the way, which was stopped by freshman keeper Levi Lord (W, 2-0-0), to claim the result.
