Spencer Chen headed a ball into the net off a crossing pass from Dane Jefferson with five minutes left to play, lifting host Gunn past Woodside 3-2 in a non-league boys soccer game Tuesday night.

Gunn (1-0), who lost to eventual Open Division champion Bellarmine in the semifinals of the Central Coast Section tournament, fell behind Woodside (1-1) on goals from Hugo Gallegos and Benny Bogyo.

Gallegos, a sophomore, has scored four goals in his first two games.

The Titans rallied to tie when Gabe Hutt sent a through ball to Jefferson at the top of the box. Jefferson dribbled around the goalie and sent the ball into the back of the net with 15 minutes remaining.

Joaquim Bonnet opened the scoring with a header from a corner kick by Jack Fallows in the first half.
