FULLERTON, Calif. – For the sixth time in nine games the Titans needed extra time to decide the outcome, this time ending in a 2-2 draw against Saint Francis Sunday night at Titan Stadium.
The Titans struck first with a goal in the 42nd minute by Daniel Adoo on a header off of a perfect corner kick from Robert Coronado. Adoo skied in the air just inside the six-yard box and headed the ball past the goalkeeper for his first goal of the season.
Saint Francis then tied the game in the 77th minute on a goal from Renan Fuentes from just outside the six. A few minutes later Edward Salazar scored on yet another corner kick from Coronado, giving the Titans a 2-1 lead late. However, the Red Flash answered again, knotting things up in the 89th minute a goal from Mario Mastrangelo.
With the two assists in the game, Coronado is now tied for ninth all-time in assists in the history of the program with 15. The senior captain still has plenty of time left in the season to move up the leaderboard.
