Gazcon broke a scoreless tie when he scored an unassisted goal off a free kick at the 26:02 mark of the first half. Just 10:27 later, Gazcon was at it again when he scored off an assist from sophomore Keifer Tandazo.
After the Jesuits got with 2-1, Gazcon gave the Westies some breathing room when he scored off an assist from Navarro with 24:38 remaining.
