A wild second half spilled over into overtime, where Pacific escaped with a soccer victory over Washington.

Pacific’s Tristan Moore scored seven minutes into overtime to give the Indians a 4-3 win over the Blue Jays Monday at Pacific High School.

Pacific (3-2) held a 3-0 lead with 15 minutes remaining in regulation, but Washington came storming back with three goals down the stretch to pull even.

“It was a good win for us, but not the way we went about it,” said Pacific Head Coach Todd Dempsey. “No disrespect toward Washington’s players and coaches, but if we’re up 3-0 with that short amount of time left in the game, we should have closed the door on them. Credit Washington though, they didn’t throw in the towel and they chipped away at the lead and eventually tied it up.”

Washington (1-6) could not complete the comeback in overtime, but still took away a positive experience.

“We showed a tremendous amount of fight in the last 15 minutes to tie it up,” said Washington Head Coach Derek Schriewer. “It really was a great effort. No one likes to lose, but I think this is a game that we can be happy with because of the way we finished.”

Moore scored the game-winner in overtime, his second goal of the contest, on an assist from Jeremy Hardcastle.

“They had the momentum going into overtime. After seeing a three-goal cushion disappear, I wasn’t sure our kids would bounce back knowing we had to play extra time,” Dempsey said. “To our credit though, the boys did what they had to do to pull out a win. Jeremy played a ball over the top of the defense right on to Tristan’s foot. As the keeper came off his line, Tristan beat him to the far post to win the game.”

Jay King was in goal for Pacific and David Meyers was Washington’s keeper.

Meyers made a save on a penalty kick by Moore in the first half, which helped keep the game scoreless at halftime.

The fireworks began in the second half.

Pacific jumped to a 3-0 lead on goals by Moore, Justin Moyle and Alex Carlisle. Brandon Rowbottom, Moore and Carlisle had the assists.

“We talked at the half about how we were getting closer and closer to scoring with each chance we created and we just needed to put some consistent pressure on them to finally break through,” Dempsey said. “Once we got that first goal, the floodgates opened up and we were really putting some good pressure on their goal for about eight to 10 minutes. After that, I think we felt like the game was in hand with about 15 minutes to play and we just softened up.”

That’s when the Blue Jays answered with three straight goals of their own.

Washington got on the scoreboard when Cameron Bunkley scored on a free kick from 35 yards out with just under 15 minutes left on the clock.

With approximately 12 minutes remaining, the Blue Jays made it 3-2 when Bunkley scored again on an assist from Steven Beerman.

Washington then tied the score 3-3 with just under three minutes left to play on a goal by Beerman, assisted by Justin Schuttenberg.

“Steven made a great shot to tie it up,” Schriewer said. “Our sideline and our crowd were excited. It was a great atmosphere.”

Pacific bounced back to win the game on Moore’s goal.

“No. 22 (Moore) is one heck of a player,” Schriewer said. “We had a plan to stop him, but he still found a way to score two goals.”

Dempsey was pleased that the Indians responded in overtime.

“In a game like this, you learn a lot about your team, both good and bad. We need to be mentally tougher. We had an opponent on the ropes and we took our foot off the gas and it nearly cost us the game,” Dempsey said. “When we faced some adversity, we showed we can fight through it and find a way to win. Tristan Moore played his best game of the year by far. He really stepped up and became a leader for us.”
