Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif.- In Friday's WCC matchup held at Torero Stadium, the University of San Diego men's soccer team handed the Portland Pilots a 4-3 loss. The Toreros had four different goal scorers on the night, while setting a season high in goals (4), points (12), and shots (19).

Less than five minutes after the 7pm kickoff, freshman Torrey DeArmas made an early impression on the opposing team with his first collegiate goal, assisted by a long pass from Matthew Chavez. Eleven minutes later, the Pilots closed the gap on the scoreboard with Keith Grubisich's goal, assisted by Derek Boggs.

The Toreros (4-6-0, 2-1 WCC) were quick to rally back with another goal, made by Patrick Wallen in the 23rd minute of the game off an assist from James Cohn. However, the Pilots (4-5-1, 2-1 WCC) were awarded with a penalty kick in the following play after San Diego fouled Steven Evans in the box. Evans tied the score at 2-2 with a shot to the right side of the goal that was out of Torero goalkeeper Drew Ilijevski's reach.

Again, the Toreros retaliated with Sergio Lopez's goal, shot from 19 yards out in the 25th minute and James Cohn was credited with his second assist of the contest. San Diego's defense upheld this one goal advantage through the remainder of the first half and strengthened their hold on the win in the 55th minute when Dan Delgado chipped a goal into the upper left corner of the net with an assist from DeArmas, that would prove to be the game-winner.

With less than five minutes on the clock, Portland's Grubisich scored his second goal of the night off a pass from Evans. The Pilots fight to tie the game in the remaining four minutes proved ineffective, as the Toreros came out victorious.

 

 

Ilijevski (2-1-0) took the win, finishing with five saves while Justin Baarts (4-5-1), who also made five saves, took the loss. The Toreros held a slight advantage with a 19-18 edge in shots on the night.

The Toreros will continue WCC play this Sunday when they host Gonzaga on their home turf at 1pm.
