The ECC men’s soccer team (now 3-2-3) played their eighth game of the season against the L.A. Harbor College Seahawks on Friday, Sept. 28, but this was their first home opening conference game.

The Warriors fell behind early, when a defensive miscue in the 5th minute allowed Seahawk player Daberchukwu Anyadike to poke the ball past ECC keeper Andrew Argueta.

However, in the first minute of the second half, ECC defender Mason Briggs played a through-ball assist which midfielder Jean-Pierre Dejean Macksa slotted home, tying the score, 1-1.

Macksa remained very dangerous, with two other clear scoring opportunities within the next 15 minutes, but he shot both wide of the Seahawk goal.

The Warriors got two other opportunities to win the game. Cole Prince shot one wide, while midfielder Dara Fakhouri tantalizingly headed the other one over the Seahawk crossbar at the 90th minute. The game therefore ended in a 1-1 tie.
