Palomar tops rival MiraCosta 2-1 in finale

SAN MARCOS (11-13-2015) -- Palomar finished its men's soccer season on a huge upside on Friday afternoon at Minkoff Field by sweeping rival MiraCosta.

Austin Rizzo scored the winning goal off an assist by Elijah Lopez in the 88th minute, giving the Comets a 2-1 victory over the Spartans.

Rizzo's goal broke a 1-1 halftime tie. MiraCosta went in front late in the first half, but the Comets answered with an unassisted goal by Lalo Calleja.

"(Rizzo's goal) was a great individual effort," Palomar coach Dave Whiddon said, who took over the Comets' program during the off-season and saw his team barely fall short in their previous two games when it had an opportunity to finish the season over .500 .

"This is a great win for the program and will really help in recruiting for next year," Whiddon added. "It was another tremendous team effort, the defense led by Aaron Ruth was solid and the midfield play by Juan Garcia was outstanding."

Palomar's goalkeepers combined for 11 saves, five by Autry Hailey and six by Pierce Cole.

In the first game of the afternoon at Minkoff Field, Palomar's women's team defeated MiraCosta 1-0.
