Gonzaga slips past Seattle

The Gonzaga Bulldogs scored a pair of goals 3 minutes, 15 seconds apart late in the second half to pull out a 2-1 victory over the visiting Seattle University Redhawks in nonconference men’s soccer on Sunday.

Race Sciabica took a pass from Marshall Kosaka and scored at the 14:39 mark to put the Redhawks up 1-0.
