Jose Madrigal scored in the 48th minute on an assist from Richard Renteria, and Petr Titechko scored in the 69th on an assist from Jovan Rojas as Pasco came alive in the second half of a nonleague contest against host Chiawana on Thursday, rallying for a 2-1 victory.
"The first half, we did not play how would we would like to," Pasco coach Matt Potter said. "But I was real proud we came out and played much, much better in the second half. Definitely a credit to our guys."
Potter noted also that Titechko's scoring play was the senior's first goal in his first varsity game.
"Everyone was very excited for him," Potter said.
