Signorelli Nets Hat Trick, Mats Hold off CSN
|Arizona Western College||3|
|College of Southern Nevada||2|
HENDERSON, Nev---Michele Signorelli picked up right where he left off, scoring goals in bunches, as the #10 Arizona Western Matadors (1-0 overall) ended up fighting off the Southern Nevada Coyotes (0-1 overall) in an overtime thriller Thursday afternoon.
Signorelli struck first with a pair of goals, once of a penalty, to give the Matadors an early 2-0 lead at the half.
But CSN received a penalty midway through the second half and found their late life with an equalizer shortly there after, even down a man due to a red card.
The Matador offense lulled in the second half but took just a few minutes into overtime as Michael Appiah played a ball beautifully down the right side and delivered a fantastic cross that Signorelli smashed home to finish the match.
Arizona Western starts the year at 1-0 and will wrap up the Nevada portion of the weekend at 3:00pm against Snow College Friday afternoon.
The game will be streamed on the Matador Athletics Facebook Page (facebook.com/awcmatadorathletics) beginning at 2:50pm. The women's game will follow at 5:00pm and also be streamed on the same page.
