ARCATA, Calif. – Colby Bauer scored his first goal of the season to lead BYU-Hawaii men's soccer to a 1-1 tie with Humboldt State on Saturday afternoon.
"I have a lot of respect for Humboldt and the tournament they put on," BYU head coach Mark Davis said. "Their coaching staff was awesome. The boys played extremely well today and owned the midfield. We created so many opportunities, but Humboldt's keeper came up big. It was a classic dogfight and both teams had their opportunities."
The Seasiders outshot the Lumberjacks 22-20 and 9-6 on shots on goal. Trailing 1-0, Zak Epplete got the ball to Bauer in the box who drilled the ball into the center of the net to tie the game in the 12th minute.
Humboldt State struck first in the fourth minute when a cross into the box found Quintin Aguilar's chest and crossed the goal line.
BYU-Hawaii looked to take the lead in the 81st minute, but Chad Nahoolewa's shot went off the crossbar. The Lumberjack's Javier Torres saved Jace Green's shot in the 85th minute to make sure the game went to extra minutes.
Three minutes into extra time Mike Moreno got loose to put one on frame, but the ball went off the post. Humboldt controlled the second period of extra time with two shots that went off the crossbar.
The Seasiders will play one final contest before conference play at San Francisco State on Sept. 23 at 12:30 p.m. PDT.
