SAN BERNARDINO - Jon Fahey's third goal of the season with three minutes left in regulation lifted Concordia-Irvine to a 3-2 nonconference men's soccer win over Cal State San Bernardino on Monday.
Fahey finished off a short pass from Eric Mendoza to pull out the win after the Coyotes (1-3-1) had rallied from a 2-0 deficit to tie the match 2-2 in the 84th minute on a penalty kick by sophomore Obi Agwu.
Concordia (3-3), last year's NAIA national runner-up, started fast with Joel Smith finding himself unmarked for a shot from outside the 18-yard line that struck the net inside the far post just 1:59 into the match. Shanon Murphy found Smith alone on the left flank and fed him the ball.
Five minutes into the second half, the Eagles made it 2-0 on Mendoza's third goal of the season on an assist from Fahey.
The Coyotes were able to wrest some momentum from the Eagles after junior Brock Steele struck a hard shot into the upper net from outside the 18 and straight away after being set up by Jeremiah Marquez.
Agwu then knotted the score when he was tripped in the penalty area and secured the penalty shot with a low shot inside the near post, beating keeper James Rammelsberg.
The Coyotes outshot the Eagles 15-8.
