FULLERTON, Calif. – Cal State Fullerton's Christian Pinzon scored the golden goal in the 100th minute of action to give the Titans a 3-2 win over Air Force in overtime to move the Titans to 5-0 on the season.
Fullerton dominated most of the game and kept possession throughout, however, with just 10 men on the field the Titans fouled Air Force inside the box, giving them a penalty kick which the Falcons converted in the 83rd minute to tie the game and send it to overtime.
The Titans didn't let it affect them as they come out in overtime with energy and aggression to win the match. Fullerton got off five shots in overtime before Pinzon put in the game-winner. Tyler Marquez recorded the assist on Pinzon's goal, his third of the season. Pinzon also recorded an assist in the match, giving him three goals and four assists for a total of 10 points which is tied for the lead on the team.
Air Force got on the board first with a goal in the 17th minute by Tristan Trager. It was just the second time this season the Titans have given up the first goal of the game.
The Titans answered in the 33rd minute on a goal by Oscar Flores, assisted by Alex Juarez for Flores' third goal of the season. Fullerton earned an indirect free kick after the Air Force goalkeeper held the ball for too long.
Just seven minutes later in the 40th minute, Flores scored again to give Fullerton a 2-1 lead and record his fourth goal of the season. Charly Anguiano and Pinzon assisted on the goal. Flores is tied with Pinzon for most points on the team with 10, on four goals and two assists.
Fullerton returns to the pitch Sunday looking to remain undefeated as they host No. 14 ranked Florida Gulf Coast at Titan Stadium in a battle of ranked opponents.
