USD Wins Soggy 2-0 Contest Over Gonzaga

Nov. 4, 2011

Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif.- The University of San Diego men's soccer team battled rain showers and a soggy field en route to their 2-0 shutout of Gonzaga on Friday afternoon from Torero Stadium. Junior Conor McFadden notched the game-winning goal for the Toreros right off the bat in the first minute of action, while junior Dan Delgado added the insurance goal in the 72nd minute.

The Toreros (8-7-1, 5-3-1 WCC) dominated offensively, outshooting the Bulldogs (4-10-2, 2-6-1 WCC) 19-8 on the day. USD put the pressure on right away when McFadden took a chip pass from Elijah Galbraith-Knapp that he handled around 10 yards out off to the right of the net. McFadden's shot was barely out of the reach of Gonzaga keeper Ryan Caballero and tipped off the end of his gloves and trickled into the empty net, putting USD up 1-0 in the first minute and a half.

From there USD kept the ball on Gonzaga's side of the pitch for most of the contest. The Toreros had numerous scoring opportunities that they barely missed out on, including a match-high six shots from junior Patrick Wallen.

Eventually, Delgado would put the Toreros up for good 2-0 when McFadden delivered a pass from the right side near midfield that Delgado took directly to the goal. He created an angle around the lone Bulldog defender and placed the shot just to the left of Caballero for his first goal of the season.

Delgado had three shots in the match, while Galbraith-Knapp and McFadden each added two shots apiece. Nathanael Pacheco led Gonzaga with two shots on the day.

The victory gives the Toreros some retribution over Gonzaga after losing 3-2 in double overtime in Spokane, Wash. earlier this season.

Michael D'Arrigo recorded three saves and tallied the shutout in his third start of the season, while improving to 1-1-0 on the year. Caballero had six saves and dropped to 3-9-2 on the season.

 

 

The Toreros play their final home match of the season on Sunday, Nov. 6th when they host Portland for a 2:00 pm kickoff. USD's five seniors will be recognized before the contest.
