    USAF, Colo. - Isaias Bardales scored on a header off of Gonzalo Guerra's free kick at the 5:58 mark of first overtime to give San Jose State University a 1-0 win over Air Force in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Mountain Division game.

    The win gives the Spartans an 8-0 record in conference games, 16-0-1 overall. San Jose State has clinched the MPSF Mountain Division title and a berth in the conference playoffs, scheduled for Nov. 10-12.

With less than five minutes remaining in the game, the Falcons' Phil Peacock took a long cross and sprinted towards the goal, drawing Spartan goalkeeper Chris Humphreys out of the box. Peacock passed the ball to Ryan Sagastume, who had an open shot at the goal. His shot was deflected at the last minute by a Spartan defender.
