Martin Molina's scoring streak lives.
Molina scored for the seventh consecutive game, lifting the Modesto Junior College men's soccer team to a 4-3 victory over host Cosumnes River with a goal in the final two minutes of play Friday.
Modesto led 2-0 at halftime and 3-1 midway through the second half. The Hawks scored two quick goals to tie the game at 3-3.
But the Pirates, not willing to give up their second-place standing in the Big 7 Conference, refused to allow Cosumnes River to force overtime.
