SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The USD men's soccer team came away with a 2-2 draw in their West Coast Conference opener Wednesday night against Loyola Marymount at Torero Stadium. USD (3-3-2, 0-0-1 WCC) took an early lead with Torrey DeArmas' goal in the ninth minute, before adding a score from Michael Turner in the 51st minute. However, LMU (4-2-2, 0-0-1 WCC) rallied back with two goals in the final 15 minutes to force overtime and eventually the tie.

The Toreros controlled the momentum throughout the first half, which was relatively quiet with the exception of DeArmas' second goal of the season. Julian Ringhof sailed a long pass from the opposite end of the pitch into DeArmas inside LMU's 18-yard line. DeArmas, who was flanked by two LMU defenders, dribbled around, turned, and fired a laser into the lower left corner to put USD up 1-0.

Coming out in the second half, Connor Brandt bent a well-placed cross from the left wing into Turner, who was waiting for a wide open header that he converted into a goal from about 10 yards out for his second score of the season.

The USD defense was stout throughout most of the game in preventing the Lions from building up much offensive momentum. However, an injury to Elijah Galbraith-Knapp that led to an LMU red card late in the second half helped open up some opportunities for LMU on the offensive end.

Perez put the Lions on the board with a goal in the 76th minute in which he took a pass from Juan De Rada and scored from about 15 yards out into the far corner, just out of the reach of the diving USD keeper Michael D'Arrigo.

 

 

David Flores then evened it up at 2-2 in the 80th minute after he followed up a shot by De Rada that was deflected and tapped the loose ball into the empty net.

D'Arrigo, who had three saves on the night, turned in a key save in the first minute of the second overtime period when he leapt to deflect a line drive shot from LMU's Adrien Perez over the goal.

DeArmas nearly had a game-winner of his own in the first overtime period when he fired off a low, firm shot that was snagged by LMU keeper Paul Blanchette diving to his left. Altogether, DeArmas led all players with five shots on the night, while the overall shot distribution was very even with USD holding a 14-13 edge. The Toreros held a commanding 14-5 advantage in corner kicks in the contest.

USD continues WCC play when they host Santa Clara at 7 pm Friday evening from Torero Stadium.
