AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo.-- Hugo Vinales scored with 1:33 remaining in the second overtime Thursday to give Cal State Bakersfielda 1-0 victory over the University of Missouri-Kansas City in the first round of the Western Athletic Conference men's soccer tournament.

Mario Ortiz set Vinales' game-winning goal. Vinales' shot, from about 10 yards, went under goalie Chris McGaughey to the lower right.

CSUB outshot the 'Roos 33-15 in the match. Roadrunner goalie Anthony Perez charted eight saves in earning his fourth shutout. McGaughey made 11 saves.

The Roadrunners (9-8-2) outshot the Kangaroos 29-11 over the first 90 minutes. CSUB had three attempts go off the UMKC post or crossbar. Christian Duarte took a shot with 46 seconds remaining in regulation, but McGaughey made a save that sent the match into overtime.

The Roadrunners had two chances in the first overtime to end it. The first came when Jonathan Colunga sent Eduardo Calzada a pass just inside the 18, but Calzada's attempt went wide right. On the second, Colunga dribbled in and his first shot was saved by McGaughey; the rebound came out, but Colunga couldn't put it away. CSUB increased its shots advantage to 32-13 after the first overtime.

UMKC (4-11-4) had taken the lone shot of the second overtime up until Vinales' gamewinner.

The Roadrunners will play San Jose State in the semifinals at 5 p.m. today. The Spartans tied UNLV in their first round match 2-2, but advanced on PK's 9-8.

Men's basketball: Ahmed ineligible

Aly Ahmed, a 6-foot-9, 270-pound center from Alexandria, Egypt, who was expected to provide front line depth on Cal State Bakersfield's basketball team this season, has been ruled ineligible by the NCAA, CSUB athetic director Jeff Konya said.

Ahmed, a sophomore, played last season at Midland (Junior) College in Texas, where he averaged eight points and six rebounds per game.

CSUB coach Rod Barnes said earlier this week that Ahmed's eligibility dealt with a transcript issue that was complicated by Ahmed's international student status.

Konya said CSUB officials were upset with the ruling and plan to appeal.

If the appeal is denied, Ahmed will lose a year of eligibility, Barnes said earlier this week.

Ahmed, 21, played on Egypt's under-19 national team in 2009 and was the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) most valuable player in that tournament. He has extensive international experience.

Ahmed is not related to London-born Abdul Ahmed, a 6-10 junior center who has started CSUB's first three games this season.

CSUB is 2-1 after beating Sacramento State 74-66 on Wednesday. The Roadrunners play host to the University of Nevada Monday at 7 p.m. in Rabobank Arena.

Volleyball team falls to LMU in 4

Fernanda Goncalves recorded her team leading 12th double-double of the year, but Loyola Marymount defeated CSUB 25-16, 25-18, 23-25, 25-13 in the Roadrunners' final home volleyball match of the season.

With the match tied at 15 in the first set, the Lions went on a 10-1 run to win it. Bakersfield rallied from 15-10 down the in third set on the way to its lone set win.

Goncalves, who also leads the Western Athletic Conference in double-doubles, had 35 assists and 11 digs. She also tied her career high with six kills and added three blocks. Debora Araujo led the 'Runners with 17 kills. Kelsee Sawyer and Molly O'Hagan both had 10 kills for CSUB. Kathleen Luft tallied a game high 18 kills to lead LMU.
