West Rowan came back twice to draw level with Carson, but fell short in Penalty Kicks. Both teams fought to find that first goal throughout the first half, with West and Carson exchanging opportunities. It wasn’t until midway through the 2nd half that Carson was able to find the back of the net and take a 1-0 lead. West fought back and brought the game back even on a goal in the 8th minute by Stevenson Lopez from Kenneth Ortiz. Shortly after West brought the game level, Carson took the lead again. West would not go away and again found themselves fighting back and bringing the game level at 2 on a goal from Sebastian Trujillo with just under 4 minutes remaining. The game went through 2 scoreless 5 minute overtimes before going to penalty kicks where Carson came out on top by converting 4 of their 6 kicks. West will travel to Statesville on Monday, Oct. 8 to continue conference play.
