COLLEGE ROUNDUP : Kirsch Scores in Overtime to Give UC Irvine Men's Soccer a 1-0 Victory

Mark Kirsch scored in overtime to give UC Irvine a 1-0 victory over Cal State Fullerton in a Big West Conference men's soccer game Sunday at UC Irvine.

It was the first Big West loss for the Titans (6-5, 4-1 in the conference). Irvine is 6-4, 2-3.

Kirsch scored on a header into the center of the goal after UCI's John O'Brien headed a corner kick by Mike Roach. Fullerton goalkeeper Mike Ammann was expecting a shot from O'Brien but the ball caromed to Kirsch.

Irvine goalkeeper Chris Taylor, a red-shirt freshman, had nine saves in his second shutout of the season.
