A Royal Warrior Tie

A penalty kick by Gerald Ben in the sixty-fourth minute drew Westmont (3-4-1, 0-2-1 GSAC) even with Hope International (6-4-1, 0-2-1) at one goal apiece and that is the way the Golden State Athletic Conference game would finish after the completion of regulation and two overtime periods.

Ben's successful PK came just four minutes after the Royals' Matthew Howard scored to make it a 1-0 game. Matthews received a backward pass from Zach Hoffer and finished the play from just inside the box.

The Warriors were awarded the penalty kick when Will Bobo was taken down in the box while dribbling parallel to the goal.

The Warriors were outshot 23-16 by the Royals, though both teams had just four shots on goal. Westmont also owned a 9-6 corner kick advantage in the contest.
