SAN DIEGO, Calif.- The University of San Diego men's soccer team battled to a scoreless tie against West Coast Conference foe Saint Mary's Friday night from Torero Stadium. The Toreros (4-4-1, 1-0-1 WCC) started the match slow offensively but rallied back to outshoot the Gaels (1-3-4, 0-0-1 WCC) in the second half and in both overtime periods combined.

Saint Mary's commanded the offensive momentum for much of the first half as they tallied five shots to USD's one and kept the ball on the Toreros' side of the pitch for the majority of the period. USD had opportunities in Saint Mary's territory, however, as they had six corner kicks in the first half but were unable to convert any of them into goals.

In the second half, action picked up for both teams as they traded offensive bursts. Each team had a handful of close calls and narrow misses throughout the half but had nothing to show for it. The Toreros held a slight 6-5 edge in shots during the second frame.

As regulation ended with the score knotted at 0-0, both teams came up empty in the ensuing overtime periods despite aggressive offensive play on both sides. USD and Saint Mary's matched each other with two shots apiece in each overtime period.

Sophomore midfielder Elijah Galbraith-Knapp led the Toreros with four shots on the night, while Dan Delgado and Patrick Wallen each added a pair of shots apiece. The Gaels got a game-high five shots from Justin Grider and three from Conroy Cunningham. Overall, Saint Mary's outshot USD 14-11 in the match, while USD held a 9-2 edge in corner kicks.

Gael keeper Doug Herrick recorded five saves in the contest, while moving to 1-3-4 on the year, and the Toreros' Adam Campbell moved to 4-3-1 on a relatively quiet night in goal with no saves.



USD heads to Portland next Saturday, Oct. 7th for the NSCAA College Game of the Week to be broadcast live via the Fox Soccer Channel with kickoff set for 7:00 pm.
