SANTA CLARA, Calif. - The University of San Diego men's soccer team suffered a 2-0 defeat at Santa Clara on Friday evening at Buck Shaw Stadium. The Broncos scored both of their goals in the second half in handing the Toreros a loss in both teams' West Coast Conference opener.

After a scoreless first half in which the Torero defense held Santa Clara at bay the Broncos' Erik Hurtado put SCU on the board with a goal in the 58th minute of action. Hurtado took a pass from Ryan Masch and dribbled into the box where he connected inside the far post against backup Torero keeper Drew Ilijevski.

10 minutes later Carlos Montes put the Broncos (4-4-0, 1-0 WCC) up 2-0 with a goal in the 68th minute where he connected on an unassisted set piece from the right side.

USD (2-6-0, 0-1 WCC) had seven corner kicks to Santa Clara's zero on the night, but the Broncos held a 14-8 edge in shots in the contest. Patrick Wallen led the Toreros with four shots including two shots on goal. Half of USD's shots were on goal against Bronco keeper Larry Jackson (4-3-0), who registered four saves.

Ilijevski (0-1-0) took the loss while allowing both goals and tallying three saves on the night in relief of starter Michael D'Arrigo.

The Toreros wrap up their Bay Area trip on Sunday with a 3:00 pm contest at Saint Mary's.
