Seattle Pacific's men's soccer team beat Saint Martin's 4-2 in a Great Northwest Athletic Conference game Tuesday night at Interbay Stadium.
The Falcons (7-3-5) have won their past three home games, outscoring opponents 14-3 in the process.
Corey Sinser put SPU on the board in the 15th minute when he stripped a Saints defender and calmly lofted a shot over Zac Lubin. Brendon Cloyd made it 2-0 just five minutes later when he took a through ball from defender Matt Kemper and slotted the ball in from 15 yards out.
Victor Kelmel cut the lead to 2-1 in the 31st minute for Saint Martin's, rocketing a shot past the outstretched arm of Falcons goalie Kellen Rosten. The Falcons extended their lead in the second half when Alec Nelson corralled a rebound and ripped a shot into the upper-left corner.
Jeff Hallenbeck made it 4-1 Falcons, converting a penalty kick in the 67th minute for his team-leading seventh goal of the year. SPU outshot Saint Martin's 15-5. Lubin finished with four saves and Rosten finished with one.
The Falcons play Western Washington at 7 p.m. Friday.
Former pitcher had survived 1946 crash
Darwin "Gus" Hallbourg, a survivor of a fatal bus crash that devastated the 1946 Spokane Indians baseball team, died Saturday of a heart attack at a California care center, according to his brother Don. He was 87.
Nine of the Western International League team's 15 players died when their Bremerton-bound bus tumbled off the Snoqualmie Pass highway and burst into flames on June 24, 1946.
Mr. Hallbourg, who played professionally for six years as a pitcher and outfielder, crawled through a window frame. After helping others to safety, he was treated for burns on his arms and hands. He returned to action later in the season.
In 1940, his second season, the right-hander won 21 games for Pampa, Texas, of the West Texas-New Mexico League. After being sold to San Diego, Mr. Hallbourg won 15 games for Anaheim of the California League in 1941 and appeared in four games for the Padres.
After service in the U.S. Navy in World War II, Mr. Hallbourg played for Spokane, finishing with a 7-6 record. He played two more seasons with Lancaster of the Inter-State League.
He settled in Manteca, Calif., and was employed for 32 years by Pacific Telephone Co.
Mr. Hallbourg is survived by Roberta, his wife of 61 years; three sons and a daughter; five grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
