Here are the best goals from Week 13 of men’s soccer action.

Jon Bakero – Wake Forest

Columbia nearly forced overtime against top-seeded Wake Forest in the second round of the NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship but the Demon Deacons were able to escape with a 1-0 win as Jon Bakero beat the keeper to the left on a penalty kick in the 89th minute.

Martin Melchor – Coastal Carolina

Coastal Carolina advanced to the third round of the Men’s Soccer Championship after a 3-1 win over No. 8 seed Clemson. Martin Melchor scored twice – the first and last goals of the game – including a beautiful header in the 4th minute.

Stuart Holthusen – Akron

While many of the top-seeded teams fell in the second and third rounds, Akron avoided being a part of that group by escaping Wisconsin 3-2 in overtime. Stuart Holthusen scored the golden goal in the 92nd minute.

Aram Ouligian – Colgate

Colgate played the role of spoiler in Week 13, knocking off No. 13 seed Michigan 3-2 thanks to Aram Ouligian’s header off of a corner kick with less than three minutes to play.

Jack Skahan – North Carolina

North Carolina sophomore midfielder Jack Skahan had only scored one goal this season before the Tar Heels’ third round game against SMU. He doubled his yearly total with a bouncing strike from 25 yards out that proved to be the game-winner.

Jannik Loebe – Fordham

Opponents beware, Fordham isn’t messing around. After beating St. Francis (Brooklyn) in the first round, the Rams have knocked off No. 11 seed Virginia and No. 6 seed Duke. Next up? Another seeded ACC foe, North Carolina. Jannik Loebe tied the game 1-1 against Duke with his goal in the 40th minute.

Cory Thomas – Indiana

With a 2-1 win over New Hampshire, Indiana returned to the NCAA quarterfinals for the first time since winning the national championship in 2012. Cory Thomas’ header in the 10th minute gave the Hoosiers a lead that they never relinquished.
