Biola Falters in Second Half Against USC
April 7, 2011 – After a first half that found the Eagles on top of the Trojans, Biola faltered in the second half, leading to their 12-8 loss over the University of Southern California. The Trojans started out slow, scoring once in the first two quarters, but Biola came out firing on all cylinders, recording three goals in the first quarter and two more in the second. Biola headed into the halftime break with a confident 5-2 lead over USC. Seung Hoon Chang, the Trojans offensive leader, wouldn’t let Biola walk away with a win that easily however. Chang singlehandedly brought the Trojans back into the game, and ultimately led to the win. The Eagle’s offense couldn’t counter Chang, scoring only three goals in the second half, to USC’s 10.
Sophomore attackman Jeff Clark and sophomore midfielder Scott Gamelson led Biola’s scoring attack, each tallying three goals. Gamelson provided the lone offensive spark late in the game, scoring the final three of Biola’s goals. Junior attackman Marc Morgan and junior midfielder David Sigley scored once each to round out Biola’s scoring. Senior midfielder Scott Shiokari, junior midfielder Jayson Schivley, and senior defensemen Justin Harrington and Sean Lane all recorded one assist. Freshman goalie Jimmy Perdomo-Hazen stopped nine of the Trojan’s shots.
