Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The USD men's soccer team suffered a 5-0 defeat at the hands of San Diego State Friday evening in their season opener from the SDSU Sports Deck. In front of a raucous, sold out stadium, SDSU got out to an early lead and never looked back, scoring one goal in the first half and four in the second.

The Aztecs (1-0-0) took control from the first kick, keeping the pressure on USD throughout the first half. The Toreros did not register their first shot until the 17th minute. Overall in the contest, SDSU held a 19-8 edge in shots.

Kody Duff scored the first goal of the game in the 19th minute when he knocked a header into the far corner off a cross. In the second frame, Jordan Ongaro picked up an unassisted goal in the 53rd minute with a shot from the corner of the 18-yard box that found the opposite net. That was followed by Abraham Villon who netted a 15-yarder in the 64th minute. Just three minutes later, Morgan Sacco converted a penalty kick to put SDSU up 4-0, followed by Henrik Synnes' score off a corner kick in the 70th minute to make it 5-0.

Despite the lopsided final score, the Toreros (0-1-0) came away with a handful of good looks, but were unable to make them count. Freshman Parker Price had his rocket stopped in the 21st minute, while Sergio Lopez also fired away from the 18-yard line but had his shot deflected by Aztec keeper Blake Hylen.

Early in the second half, Julian Ringhof narrowly missed a header wide right coming off a corner kick that would have tied the game at 1-1. Torrey DeArmas also ripped a low shot on a line from about 20 yards out that found Hylen's gloves.

 

 

Drew Ilijevski (0-1-0) was handed the loss for the Toreros after allowing all five goals, but making four saves, including a diving stab off a line drive header in the second half. Hylen (1-0-0) picked up the victory, recording three saves in the process.

The Toreros return to action on Friday, Sept. 6 when they head to Cal State Northridge for a 5 pm contest.
