REYES SCORES GAME-WINNING GOAL IN TRUMAN MEN'S                       
SOCCER VICTORY OVER KENNEDY-KING                      
David Reyes' (Schurz High School) goal with exactly 10 minutes to play broke a 2-2 deadlock and lifted the Truman men's soccer team to a 3-2 victory over CCC rival Kennedy-King on Saturday at KKC.                      

With the win, the Falcons improved to 1-1-0 for the season. Kennedy-King, meanwhile, was making its season debut.                      

Reyes, Truman's 2015 leader in goals, assists and points, knocked in the game winner after receiving a pass from Roberto Pimentel (Kelly High School).                      

Edgar Oropeza (Rossevelt High School) gave Truman a 1-0 lead when he opened the scoring in the 35th minute on an assist from Hakeem Alao-Aboko (Ibadan High School, Nigeria). But Jerry Patino (Oak Lawn Richards High School) put the hosts in front 2-1 when he scored back-to-back goals at the 52:18 and 53:56 marks. Tosin Kolawole (Jubilee High School/Ondo State, Nigeria) and Salvador Gonzalez (Pathways Brighton High School) provided the assists.                    

Patino, who ranked fifth nationally last year in goals (28) and points (64), was utilized as the Statesmen's goalkeeper in the first half of the contest before being moved to forward for the final 45 minutes.                    

Less than five minutes after Patino gave Kennedy-King the 2-1 advantage, Mario Menjivar (Dekaney High School, Houston) tied the game after receiving Abdullahi Akorede's (Osogbo High School, Osogbro, Nigeria) touch pass.
