Forward Wilson Briggs scored two goals and one assist in Santa Rosa Junior College’s men’s soccer team’s come-from-behind 3-2 victory over Modesto Junior College Oct. 4 at Cook Sypher Field.

Modesto [2-4-5] heavily controlled the first 30 minutes of play, taking a 1-0 lead when Christian Carranza poked a shot past SRJC goalie David Hernandez in the fifth minute.

Regular starter Oscar Hjern replaced Hernandez in the ninth minute.

“We gifted them a goal early,” said SRJC head coach Marty Kinahan. “There was a lack of intensity in our defense today. Mentality wise they just weren’t defending well and defending hard.”

SRJC [7-1-2] created more opportunities for itself on offense from the 30th minute on.

Defender Ian Rumbaugh tied the game when he put a shot away from in front of the goal in the 39th minute for his second goal of the season.

Brigg’s first goal of the game immediately followed in the 41st minute, scoring off a rebound to give the Bear Cubs a 2-1 lead heading into halftime.

“As soon as we got the goal, we got right to it and thought this team isn’t actually that good,” Briggs said. “We got the second goal pretty fast after the first goal, and I think that was the key to winning this game.”

In the 65th minute Briggs blasted in his fifth goal of the season from outside the box to give SRJC a 3-1 cushion.

Modesto made one last attempt at a comeback with Angel Hernandez’s goal in the 80th minute to make the score 3-2, but SRJC held on to win.

“We got a good result. We just didn’t play well,” Kinahan said. “It’s a positive when you don’t play well and get a good result but it’s frustrating that you can play so much better.”

SRJC’s next game is against American River College (6-6-1) at 4 p.m. Oct. 11, at ARC.
