Fredy RazoThe Irvine Valley men's soccer team lived dangerously Tuesday afternoon in an Orange Empire Conference match at Fullerton.

The Lasers scored two goals in the final six minutes to come from behind and beat Fullerton, 2-1.

The win was the team's third in a row and improved its record to 10-4-2 overall and 6-2-1 in conference.

The IVC victory combined with Golden West's 2-1 loss to Santiago Canyon moved the Lasers into a tie with Golden West for second place.

Santa Ana leads the conference with 22 points (it beat Cypress, 4-1, on Tuesday).

Golden West and Irvine Valley are tied for second with 19 points (teams get three points for a win and one for a tie in conference).

IVC still plays Golden West and Santa Ana again this season.

On Tuesday, Irvine Valley fell behind, 1-0, when Fullerton scored in the 35th minute. The Lasers had loads of chances to score all match, out-shooting the Hornets, 18-7, in the contest.

But it took until the 84th minute for IVC to tie things up.

Sophomore forward Brandon Mulhall scored off an assist from fellow sophomore forward Fredy Razo.

Razo then put in the game-winner in the 89th minute off a pass from Mulhall.

The goals were Razo's 14th and Mulhall's seventh of the season. Razo leads the team and conference in scoring with 14 goals and three assists for 31 points. Mulhall is second on the Lasers with 22 points on seven goals and eight assists.

IVC plays again on Friday, hosting Orange Coast at 3 p.m.
