SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego men's soccer team remains undefeated in West Coast Conference play after a 3-2 win over Portland Sunday afternoon, and is the only team in the WCC that has not lost a conference match this season.

This is the first time since the 2003 campaign that USD (3-5-3, 3-0-0 in WCC) has remained undefeated three matches into conference play. The 2003 season also marked San Diego's most recent trip to the NCAA post season tournament. The Pilots fell to 4-6-2 overall and 1-4-0 in the WCC.

Forward Andrew Feld lifted USD to a 1-0 lead in the 18th minute with a shot inside the penalty box. Defender Ryan Peterman was at midfield and sent a ball deep into Portland territory which ended up in the penalty box. It was a foot race between Pilot goal keeper Dustin Guerrero and Feld. Feld won as he gathered control of the ball and quickly fired off a shot from 15 yards out for the 1-0 lead.

Brandon Kelley scored the Toreros second goal in the 35th minute with a header from the right corner of the net. Teammate Corey Norris sent a clearing ball up field which landed right in front of a charging Kelley who took it off a bounce and headed it past a Portland defender and Guerrero and into the net for a 2-0 lead.

Near the end of the first half, Portland responded in the 37th minute when Leland Wright scored off of a corner kick. Collen Warner lined up a corner kick which was sent to the top of the penalty box. Wright found an opening in the defense and ripped a shot through from 23 yards out into the upper left corner of the net to cut the USD lead to 2-1.

San Diego came back in the second half when Kevin Cook scored for San Diego in the 56th minute. Ryan Peterman from behind midfield sent a ball deep up field. Feld shouldered the long pass down to the ground to Cook who took the open shot netting the goal past a diving Guerrero lifting San Diego to a 3-1 lead.



Portland answered again in the 67th minute on a foul shot by Collen Warner. San Diego fouled Portland hard just outside the penalty box. Warner was tabbed to take the free kick as goalkeeper Kelin Briones aligned his wall to block the shot. Warner took the shot which sailed just over the USD wall and into the left side of the net to left the Pilots to 3-2.

The Pilots had a close call on a corner kick which sailed into the goalie box and had a high bounce in front of the net as the Pilots thought they scored a goal, but was cleared out of bounds giving the Toreros the 3-2 win in regulation.

San Diego outshot Portland 10-9 in the match. Guerrero recorded two saves while Briones tallied one save in the match. Portland dominated the corner kicks 8-3.

The Toreros prepare in the next week for their trip to the Bay Area to take on San Francisco and Santa Clara. They will face the Don's on October 17 at 7:00 p.m. and then travel down to take on the Broncos in a 3:00 p.m. showdown on October 19.
