Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego men's soccer team picked up their first win of West Coast Conference action against Gonzaga University Friday evening with a final score of 3-1 at Torero Stadium.

The Toreros (5-8-4, 1-5-3 WCC) wasted no time in scoring, as they netted the first goal of the match in the second minute of action. Connor Brandt skied a ball into Keegan Smith, who in turn hit a one-timer into the back of the net to give USD the early 1-0 lead.

USD continued to pour on the offensive pressure, as just four minutes later, San Diego managed to double its lead. Brandt was driving into the goal box on the left side, when a GU defender committed a foul, setting up a penalty kick situation. Brandt simply slid in his fifth goal of the season into the back of the net, to give USD a 2-0 lead.

San Diego then put things out of reach, as they scored their third goal just 10 seconds later, when Torrey DeArmas took the ball near midfield and dribbled through the Zags defense and rocked a shot off into the back of the net to move the score to 3-0.

Gonzaga (8-5-3, 5-3-0 WCC) then spoiled the shutout for the Toreros on Nick Hamer's second goal of the season, as he corralled a cross from Zach Hamer, and snuck one past the USD defense into the goal, to put the match at its final of 3-1.

Michael D'Arigo picked up the win in goal for the Toreros, as he allowed one goal, while recording seven saves. His counterpart, Ryan Caballero, was saddled with the loss in goal for the Zags, as he allowed three goals and recorded one save.

San Diego will return to action on Sunday, as they host the University of Portland in a 2 p.m. WCC match inside the friendly confines of Torero Stadium.
