(January 22, 2016) — Stephenville scored two goals in the final 12 minutes Friday evening, coming from behind to topple Burkburnett, 2-1, at Lem Brock Field.

The Yellow Jackets trailed 1-0 until Aaron Veloz scored the equalizer with 11:35 left, and the score remained level nine and a half minutes until Tino Rocha put the winner in the back of the net with 2:05 remaining.

It is the fifth straight win for Stephenville, and the first time they had to come from behind in that stretch. They had to come behind after Burkburnett put one into the net off a post in the final minute of the opening half.

The Yellow Jackets visit Fort Worth Southwest at 7:30 p.m. next Tuesday.
