Jason and James, identical twin seniors, led Seattle Pacific University to the Division II soccer title. With the Falcons trailing Florida Tech 5-3 in the second OT of their semifinal, James, a defender, was moved into goal so that an extra attacker could be brought on. With 1:02 remaining, he and Jason, a forward and the third-leading scorer in Division II, assisted on a goal by Travis Connell to make the score 5-4. Sixty-one seconds later Jason scored the tying goal. In the scoreless third OT, James made four saves, and in the 13-round shootout to decide the game he had two more. The Falcons won 6-5 and went on to beat Southern Connecticut State 1-0 in the title game.
