The Parkland College Men's Soccer team roared back from a 3-0 deficit on Wednesday as they rallied for a 4-3 win over visiting Lincoln Land, earning the Cobras an outright M-WAC title. The Cobras started slowly for the second consecutive match, falling behind the Loggers 3-0 after 28 minutes of the contest. From that point the Cobras caught fire and came back for the impressive win.

Down by three, Gustavo Giordani got Parkland back into the game as he scored off a nice pass from Alex Zarco. Just five minutes later, Daniel Kadima scored a spectacular volley off an equally impressive cross from Dom Crawford. With just over two minutes left in the half, Feli Keti tied the match off a corner kick from Daniel Kadima.

The Cobras controlled the second half and had numerous chances to grab the lead but it took until the final 10 minutes for Parkland to finally get its first lead. Giordani hit a clean strike off an assist from Kadima for the game winner and a conference title.

The Cobras have two more regular season games left; they will host South Suburban at noon Saturday and the UI Club Team at 2 p.m. Sunday. Ironically, the Cobras (8-5-2) earned the #3 seed in the upcoming Region 24 Tournament and will play Lincoln Land (4-9) in their first game. Game time is set for Saturday, October 24 at noon.
