Pedro Henrique converted a successful penalty kick, his first goal of the season, as San Diego Christian Men's Soccer team came from a goal behind to beat the host Westmont Warriors 2-1 in OT Saturday.
The winning goal came in the 98th minute as Westmont fouled a Hawk player in the box. Henrique was able to capitalize and beat Warriors goal keeper Josh Glover to keep San Diego Christian without a loss in the last nine games and give the Hawks their first conference win.
With the win, the Hawks improve to 8-1-1, 1-0-1 in GSAC while the Warriors fall to 5-3, 1-1 in the GSAC.

The Warriors got on the board early on in the first half. Rick McCarthy scored his second goal of the season in the 11th minute for the 1-0 advantage. McCarthy received a cross from Brandon Talsma as he was able to slide it past Riley.
San Diego Christian was able to score just before halftime to square things up. Moises Parada scored his first goal of the season in the 41st minute. Christian Hogan passed it to Parada, who headed it past Glover for the 1-1 tie at the break.
Scoring subsided and no team was able to take the lead at the end of regulation. San Diego Christian took five shots in the second half, Westmont had three.
Both teams had a chance to take the lead before overtime started. The Hawks' Fidias Monzon took a shot that was saved by Glover in the 88th minute, and the Warriors were able to get a header off with just six seconds left that was saved by Riley.
