Becerra scored at 9 minutes with an assist from Willmar goalie Charlie Trochlil.

Trochlil punted it to Becerra at midfield, who wove back and forth between defenders the rest of the way and put it in the lower left corner from the right side.

Becerra scored again at 22 minutes with an assist from Ezequiel Gomez.

"Our team really started playing well in the midfield," Willmar head coach Jeff Winter said. "I was pleased with our transition from offense to defense and just winning the ball in the air."

Trochlil stopped all seven of Alexandria's shots on goal.

Willmar plays its first road game 5 p.m. Tuesday at Sartell.
