Dass Scores Early to Spark Victory
Aug. 17, 2017

SAN DIEGO -- Reuben Dass scored two first-half goals to lead San Diego to a dominating 4-1 exhibition game victory against Point Loma on Thursday night at Torero Stadium.

Dass struck early, scoring on the Toreros' third shot of the game by slotting home a terrific pass by Miguel Berry in the 13th minute. He doubled the score in the 37th minute with a powerful finish on crafty through-ball by Ulber Perez.

USD struck early and often, outshooting Point Loma, 18-8, and holding a significant corner kick advantage. It was a team effort with nearly every player on the roster making an appearance.

"I was pleased with the lads," said head coach Seamus McFadden. "We dominated the game and played well. Point Loma has traditionally given us a hard time so for us to win 4-1, I was pleased."

Berry added a goal of his own in the 53rd minute, running onto a ball played over the top of the defense near midfield. He gathered the ball about 30 yards our near the left side of the penalty box.

Berry cut toward the center of the field and unleashed a curling strike that bent around his defender and into the side netting of the goal to make the score 3-0.

Freddy Polzer ignited the final Torero tally, lifting a crafty pass over the head of his defender just outside of the 18-yard box. Patrick McGrath ran onto the pass, let the ball bounce once then sent a half-volley to the back of the net to extend USD's lead to 4-0.


 

 

Point Loma got a goal back in the 71st minute when Chris Reingen converted a penalty kick to cut the Toreros' lead to 4-1.

Matt Wiher got the start in goal for USD and made three saves. Connor Hountalas came on in the second half and made two saves.

USD continued to dominate possession the remainder of the game and sealed the victory.

The Toreros begin their regular season next week with a Friday matchup at Notre Dame at 4:30 p.m. (PT) and a Sunday contest at Indiana at 9 a.m.
