SAN DIEGO, Calif.- The University of San Diego men's soccer team suffered a 1-0 overtime loss to the UCLA Bruins Sunday evening from Torero Stadium. A goal in the 91st minute by UCLA's Kelyn Rowe made the difference for the Bruins (4-2-1) as USD had their three match winning streak snapped and fell to 3-3-0 on the year.
For much of the game, the Toreros controlled the ball and kept the pressure on the UCLA defense. USD outshot UCLA 14-8 in the match and 10-5 after the first half of play. Junior midfielder Dan Delgado narrowly missed what would have been his first goal of the season when he fired a one-timer off the top post in the 12th minute of action.
Both teams battled for an edge throughout the remainder of regulation but would need overtime to settle it. The stalemate didn't last long, however, as Rowe saw an opening in the 91st minute and fired a laser from about 30 yards out that sailed just past the outstretched gloves of Torero keeper Adam Campbell, ricocheted off the left post, bounced along the goal line and bounced off the right post and across the line for the game-winner.
Senior forward Stephen Posa led the Toreros with five shots, while redshirt sophomore Daniel Meade added three. Rowe led the UCLA offense with three shots and his second goal of the season and Zack Foxhaven tallied the assist on the game-winning score.
Campbell recorded one save in the match while dropping to 3-2-0 on the year. UCLA keeper Brian Rowe tallied four saves as he picked up the win to improve to 3-1-1.
USD hits the road for their next contest on Friday, Sept. 23rd when they travel to face No. 6 UC Santa Barbara for a 7:00 pm kickoff.
