LUBBOCK, TX (KAUZ) -

A pair of second half goals for seniors Christian Okeke and Flavio Guzman propelled 18th-ranked Midwestern State to a 4-1 victory over Lubbock Christian Thursday afternoon at LCU Soccer Field.

After a scoreless first half that saw just two shots on goal between the two teams, Okeke gave Midwestern State (8-2-1, 6-1-0 HC) a 2-0 advantage with goals just 10 minutes apart off assists from Gabriel Cavalcante and Sebastian Venegas.

Lubbock Christian (2-8-1, 1-4-1) cut its deficit in half with just under 10 minutes to play with an own goal to spoil a shutout for the Maroon and Gold, the third own goal allowed by the Mustangs this season.

However, Guzman stretched the Mustangs lead back out just two minutes later with a goal off Venegas' second assist in the 83rd minute for a 3-1 score.

Guzman added his second goal of the game with just 18 seconds remaining with a shot from the left side of the box for a 4-1 final.

Midwestern State scored four second half goals in back-to-back games for the first time since doing so against UT Permian Basin (Sept. 26) and Fort Lewis (Colo.) (Oct. 5) in the 2007 season. The Mustangs, in fact, scored all four of their goals against LCU in the final 32 minutes of play.

MSU closes out its road swing Saturday at 1 p.m. against UT Permian Basin at the UTPB Turf Field in Odessa.
