Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego men's soccer team got a late goal from junior MF Elijah Galbraith-Knapp to defeat San Francisco 2-1 on Friday evening at Torero Stadium. Patrick Wallen also tallied his team-leading sixth goal of the season to help USD post their seventh consecutive win.

USF (5-6-2, 3-4-0 WCC) was able to snap the scoreless tie in a first half that started out rather slowly as both teams prevented any sort of momentum either way. In the 25th minute, Miguel Aguilar was able to slip a shot past USD keeper Drew Ilijevski in traffic in front of the goal to put the Dons up 1-0.

The Toreros (9-6-0, 7-1-0 WCC) did not have a ton of chances with only nine shots on the night- six of those coming in the second half- but they made them count when they needed to. Early in the second half Wallen maneuvered to head a free kick by Dan Delgado backward into the net for the 56th minute goal that tied the contest at 1-1.

Both teams would remain deadlocked for the next 29 minutes. USF had a pair of opportunities to pull ahead late in the second half as a one-on-one chance sailed high over Ilijevski's head and a pass inside the box that setup an open look was just pushed wide right, keeping the game tied at 1-1.

When it looked like the game was headed into overtime in the 85th minute, Galbraith-Knapp fired away a bomb from the far right wing from over 30 yards out that found the back of the net and gave USD the lead they would eventually hold on to. It was Galbraith-Knapp's third goal of the season.

The Dons held a 13-9 edge in shots on the night, while USD took seven corner kicks to USF's three. Ilijevski (7-1-0) recorded three saves while picking up the win. USF keeper Brendan Roslund (5-6-2) took the loss.

 

 

The Toreros hit the road on when they travel to Gonzaga on Friday, Nov. 2nd for a 1:00 pm WCC tilt with the Bulldogs.
