As time wound down in a scoreless game against Naples, the Mariner Tritons needed a miracle.
With about 35 seconds left in regulation time, the Tritons were in scoring distance. Taking two corner kicks in the remaining seconds, Steven Schwab converted for the game-winning goal with about 10 seconds left to lift the Tritons to a 1-0 victory Wednesday night.
"Our goalkeeper (Alex Trujillo) came up bug with some saves (five overall)," said Tritons coach Martin Cardenas. "He stopped a breakaway scoring attempt to preserve the tie at the time."
Justin Kuchle, Jomar Restrepo and Isaias Velazquez, played outstanding defense for the Tritons (6-2-2), who play a district match at South Fort Myers Friday night.
