DUE WEST, S.C. – Junior Carlos Recinos (Houston, Texas) scored both of the Cobras goals in their thrilling 2-1 double overtime win over Erskine College on Wednesday night in their Conference Carolinas opener. Recinos' game winning goal came in the 114th minute off a cross from Rommel Fondin (Palm Bay, Fla.) to give the Cobras the win.
Recinos scored the first goal of the game in the 35th minute with an assist from Jordan Snell (Palm Bay, Fla.). The Flying Fleet tied the game at one off a header by Jake Kimber in the 66th minute and that is where the game remained until Recinos found the back of the net 48 minutes later.
