Box Score

MORAGA, Calif. - The No. 14 ranked University of San Diego men's soccer team recorded a 0-0 tie with the Saint Mary's Gaels clinching the WCC men's soccer title on Friday afternoon. It's the first time since their 2003 campaign that the Toreros have won the conference title.

Coach McFadden tallies his 6th career conference championship and will make his 12th NCAA tournament appearance later this month.

"It's the sweetest of all of my championships," said McFadden. "We've taken a few lumps at the end of this season but we found a way to get the job done. Saint Mary's this year is a good team but we came in and did what we had to do. It's nice to know you've won the conference."

With the win, San Diego improves to 12-4-2 overall record and a 8-1-2 conference mark giving them 26 points with one match remaining in the regular season.

The Toreros had numerous scoring opportunities throughout the match as they posted 10 shots and five shot s on goal to Saint Mary's six total shots. Goalkeeper Kelin Briones recorded two saves in the match while the USD offense kept Gaels goalkeeper Doug Herrick busy as he recorded five saves in the match.

San Diego freshman forward Patrick Wallen tallied two shots on goal for USD while senior defender Sam Reeder and sophomore forward Stephen Posa each tally one shot on goal. San Diego accumulated six corner kicks on the night while the Gaels only had three corner kicks.

"We've consistently been the best team in the WCC this year and Saint Mary's is a worthy adversary," said McFadden.

The Toreros wrap their regular season on Sunday, November 15 at Santa Clara as they take on the Broncos at 12:00 p.m. from Buck Shaw Stadium.
