OTHELLO -- Othello scored twice in a two-minute span to rally from a one-goal deficit and earn a 3-2 CWAC victory against visiting Selah on Thursday.
Jorge Campos had an assist to Ivan Lopez in the 48th minute, then recorded another to Ociel Romero in the 49th when Othello made a strong defensive push after the kickoff. Campos finished with three assists.
The Huskies (6-1) must win their final two games -- Saturday at Ephrata and Tuesday at home against Ellensburg -- to claim the league title outright.
Othello suffered a major loss Wednesday, however, when starting goalkeeper Christian Mellin suffered a season-ending knee injury in practice.
"He just stepped wrong and tore his ACL," Othello coach Bernie Garza said.
Martel Saucedo took Mellin's place and made 10 saves against Selah. Saucedo, a sweeper who saw some time in goal earlier this year, will be the starting goalie the rest of the season.
"You never know when somebody gets hurt," said Garza, who added he will bring up a goalie from junior varsity to back up Saucedo.
