Soccer: Westmont Men’s Battle with Sea Lions Ends in Tie

The match goes into overtime, but the score stays 1-1.

Westmont College‘s Anthony Niboli scored in the 25th minute and the Warrior defense made it stand up in the next 57 minutes, but Point Loma Nazarene’s Eric Leboffe scored in the 83rd minute to tie the game at one — a tie that would not be broken in seven more minutes of regulation and 20 minutes of overtime in the Golden State Athletic Conference men’s soccer game.

Five minutes after the Sea Lions scored, Westmont’s Saul Moreno received a red card and was removed from the game. With just less than a minute left in the first overtime period, Zach George received the Warriors’ second red card. As a result, Westmont (4-5-1, 1-3-1 GSAC) was down two men in the final overtime period. Despite Point Loma’ 11-on-nine advantage, the Warriors were able to preserve the tie.

Point Loma (4-6-2, 0-3-1 GSAC) posted a shot advantage of 13-10 during the game, but the Warriors held a 5-4 edge on corner kicks. Westmont keeper Justin Etherton recorded four saves for Westmont, giving him 35 for the year.

Westmont will be back in action on Tuesday as the Warriors host No. 12 Fresno Pacific (7-1-1, 3-1-1 GSAC) at Russ Carr Field. Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m.

Ron Smith is Westmont College‘s sports information director.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
