Fernando Moreto (SR/Vitoria - ES, Brazil) scored a goal with 18 minutes remaining in Saturday's match, giving the Williams Baptist College soccer team a 2-1 victory over Missouri Baptist University. The goal came off a corner kick from Giovani Souza, and Moreto rose high above the defenders to head the ball into the back of the net.
A key moment came 16 minutes later, with just two minutes remaining in the match. Williams fouled MBU in the box, giving them a golden opportunity to equalize from a penalty kick. WBC's goalkeeper, Abel Garcia (FR/Madrid, Spain) proved up to the challenge stopping the penalty and the team held on for the victory.
Moreto's goal came after each team scored a goal in the first half. Danilo Cruz (SR/Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) opened the scoring in the 12th minute with a header off a pinpoint cross from Victor Prieto (JR/Sao Caetano do Sul, Brazil). The Eagles held the lead until 36 seconds remaining in the half. A high boot in the box gave the Spartans a rare indirect free kick in the box, which was dispatched by Jordan Lovell.
