Senior Stephen Posa logged the game-winner for the Toreros.

Sept. 4, 2011

Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif.- It was clear to the nearly 3,000 spectators in attendance from the outset that this was no ordinary non-conference matchup as the University of San Diego men's soccer team used a late goal by senior forward Stephen Posa to defeat cross-town rival San Diego State 2-1 Sunday night from Torero Stadium. USD (1-2-0) and SDSU (1-1-1) were not afraid to make it a physical contest from the beginning as four yellow cards were issued- two apiece- in the first half.

It was the Aztecs who struck early when John Pegg received a pass from Abraham Villon in the middle of the box and used the one-on-one with Torero keeper Adam Campbell to his advantage as he bounced one past Campbell into the corner of the net to put SDSU up 1-0 in the 8th minute.

Both offenses remained relatively quiet until USD redshirt sophomore midfielder Daniel Meade decided he would take things upon himself and fired a laser from a straight 25 yards out that ended up in the upper right corner of the net, giving him his first goal as a Torero and tying the match at 1-1.

USD had a pair of golden opportunities to take the lead in the second half as junior forward Patrick Wallen's open look in front of the goal sailed just high of the net in the 55th minute and a Posa header in the 80th minute looked like it was headed for the back of the net but was saved by Aztec keeper Blake Hylen.

However, Posa responded to the near miss by making sure his next opportunity found its mark. In the 88th minute, Posa took advantage of a rebounded ball that was kept alive in the box when Wallen's attempt bounced off Hylen's gloves. Posa cleaned it up by pushing it past Hylen into the far corner to give the Toreros the 2-1 advantage and the eventual game-winning goal.

The win for USD avenges last year's 3-2 loss to the Aztecs at Torero Stadium. Campbell recorded three saves on the night en route to improving his record to 1-1-0 on the year, while Hylen tallied two saves and dropped to 1-1-1.

The Toreros return to action when they host Penn on Friday, September 9th for a 7:00 pm kickoff from Torero Stadium.
