Jimmy Coggan scores game winner vs. Seattle University

Even at 14-2-3, the Seattle Pacific University Falcon's (ranked #5 in the NCAA DII) can't rest ahead of the NCAA tourney selections.  After all, last year they finished 13-2-3 and were left out in the cold. 

For Jimmy Coggan, having been reared in the unforgiving WCAL...this is nothing new.  This time, instead of Bellarmine or Mitty, it was arch rival Seattle University.  Since Jimmy has been at SPU, they have never gotten a result vs. Seattle (3 losses). In fact, last year, 2 of the SPU's 3 losses came at the hands of SU who later went on to be crowned NCAA DII National Champions.

In front of a rain-drenched crowd of over 500 people, Coggan did what the home fans have become accustomed to...he scored the winner.

The goal came in the 60th minute on an assist from Matt Kemper. Coggan beat the SU keeper to the ball and re-directed the ball with his head to score. 

For the VC Alum, and all-time leading scorer at VC, it was his 5th goal of the season to go with 4 assists.  This is James' second game winner in just over a week, having notched the goal in the 1-0 win over Cal State Monterey Bay on 10/29.

For SPU, the win puts them in the NCAA tournament with games beginning November 10.
