CLAREMONT, Calif. – The Saghens' defense was stellar limiting La Verne's offensive opportunities and the game sat at 0-0 through 90 minutes.
But the Leopards caught a break in overtime with a penalty called on the Saghens in the box, and Nathan Gonzalez converted the penalty kick to give La Verne a 1-0 win.
Pomona-Pitzer now stands at 3-3 overall and 2-2 in the SCIAC. The Sagehens have already had two SCIAC games go to overtime after overcoming a 2-0 deficit against Whittier College to win 3-2 last week.
La Verne remains undefeated at 5-0-1 overall and 3-0-1 in SCIAC play.
Saghens' keeper Ben Mitchell had a great game in goal for Pomona-Pitzer. The junior totalled seven saves including a spectacular diving save off a header with under two minutes remaining in regulation.
Peter Rentzepis got off two shots on goal but couldn't convert.
Next Game: The Sagehens head to Orange next Monday for a 7 p.m. game against Chapman.
