PCC Men’s Soccer Wins in Overtime to Advance

 Tucson, AZ – The Pima men’s soccer team was down with seven minutes remaining and came back to beat No. 5 Phoenix College 2-1 on Tuesday in the NJCAA Region I, Division I Quarterfinals. The Aztecs will play No. 1 seed Yavapai College on Thursday at 6 p.m. in the semifinals.

Roberto Zatarain (Ironwood Ridge HS), a freshman, scored the game-winning goal in the 94th minute after a cross-pass from Kyle Cornell (Canyon del Oro HS).

“I saw him (Cornell) struggling, there were three guys around him,” Zatarain said.  “Thank God I was in the right place.”

Tyler Terrell (Barry Goldwater HS) helped saved Pima’s season when he scored his goal off a header in the 83rd.

The Aztecs were swept by Yavapai this season but they lost in overtime 1-2 at their field 10 days ago.
