SPOKANE, Wash. - The University of San Diego men's soccer team endured a wild WCC road contest at Gonzaga on Sunday afternoon and came away with a 3-3 draw. The Toreros (3-5-3, 0-2-2) were kept in the game by Connor Brandt's penalty kick goal in the 87th minute that tied it at 3-3 and forced overtime. Brandt also scored the first goal of the match on a PK in the 31st minute and assisted on Sergio Lopez's score in the 67th minute.
The Toreros took a 2-1 lead on Lopez's goal after Brandt delivered a corner kick that Lopez headed into the far post, but Gonzaga (6-2-3, 1-0-2) rallied back with two goals by Clark Phillips - one in the 75th minute to tie it at 2-2 and the go-ahead goal in the 83rd minute that put the Zags up 3-2.
Nick Hamer scored Gonzaga's first goal of the game off a cross from Aaron Jeffery in the 50th minute that tied things at 1-1.
The Toreros had a one-man advantage for most of the overtime after Jeffery was issued a red card in the 96th minute. USD outshot Gonzaga 6-5 in the two overtime frames, but neither team would connect for the winning score.
After a relatively tame first half in which the Zags outshot USD 5-2, the flood gates opened as both teams mounted furious offensive attacks. Gonzaga held a 12-10 edge in shots in the second half and a 22-18 advantage overall in the game, which also marked a season high in combined shots for USD this year and was the second-highest total in shots for the Toreros alone this season.
Brandt and Torrey DeArmas each registered five shots on the day for the Toreros, which was a career high for Brandt and tied DeArmas' career best. Also setting a career high for USD was senior keeper Michael D'Arrigo, who tallied 10 saves in the contest, surpassing his previous high of nine.
Gonzaga keeper Ryan Caballero had three saves on the day.
The two teams combined for seven cautions in a hard-fought, physical match- USD had three yellow cards, while Gonzaga had three yellows and a red card.
The Toreros return home to host San Francisco in WCC action on Friday, Oct. 18 at 7 pm from Torero Stadium, before hosting Saint Mary's on Sunday, Oct. 20 at 2 pm.
