In the second half, OCC goalkeeper Tyler Folkins kept the Pirates in front when he punched away a point-blank scoring opportunity by Kody Ferrell in the 55th minute.
That would be as close as the Hawks (2-5, 0-1) would get to the Pirates the rest of the afternoon. In the 65th minute, a breakout by Jose Rodriguez led to a nice pass to Costa Mesa High product Don-Gi Shin and the freshman midfielder found the low-right corner of the goal, putting OCC up 2-0.
An insurance goal was added in the 76th minute when a breakaway foul in the scoring box led to a penalty kick, which was buried by Lopez to give OCC its final score of the day.
