The University of Hawaii at Hilo took their final home match to overtime before turning the game over to Hawaii Pacific University in a 3-2 Pacific West Conference loss on the UHH field.

After a scoreless first half, the Vulcans (6-7-2 overall, 5-4-2 PacWest) got on the board following a foul. Eduardo Ayala drove the direct kick into the defending line. The ball went off a defender and over the goalie for a 1-0 Vulcan lead.

But the Sea Warriors (10-6, 9-3) came back with a pair of goals within the next 15 minutes to take a 2-1 lead.

With 6:30 remaining in the match, the Vulcans drew a penalty kick. Drew Geis lined up the shot and sent the match into overtime.

After three competitive minutes, the Sea Warriors benefited from a direct kick that went off a Vulcan and bounded into the goal past an outstretch Dane Kaylor.
