Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego men's soccer team suffered a 1-0 overtime loss to Santa Clara Friday evening at Torero Stadium. In a game that was tightly-contested from the first kick, Santa Clara (4-5-0, 1-0-0 WCC) held the final edge when they got a goal from Carlos Montes in the 93rd minute.

Despite the loss, the Toreros (3-4-2, 0-1-1 WCC) turned in a strong all-around effort on the night and just narrowly missed a number of shots that could have made the difference. With the game scoreless in the middle of the second half, Blake Milton, Keegan Smith, and Connor Brandt each fired off shots within a couple minutes of each other that missed wide by inches.

The Torero defense held strong for the majority of the contest. USD keeper Michael D'Arrigo (3-3-2) recorded four saves on the night and Julian Ringhof and Thomas Fiskerstrand each prevented goals during a hectic scrum in front of the USD goal in the first half.

The Broncos ended up capturing the win after Dylan Autran found Montes unguarded on the left wing, where Montes scored inside the near post from about 15 yards out.

Santa Clara held a 13-10 advantage in shots on the night and a 9-3 edge in corner kicks. Kendall McIntosh (4-4-0) had three saves for the Broncos in goal.

USD is getting used to playing beyond 90 minutes, with this being their fifth overtime contest in nine games this season, and second consecutive overtime affair following Wednesday's 2-2 draw against Loyola Marymount.



The Toreros continue WCC play on Oct. 11 when they travel to Portland for a 7 pm contest.
