Box Score

MORAGA, Calif.- The University of San Diego men's soccer team was hoping to capture at least a share of the West Coast Conference championship with a win at Saint Mary's on Sunday afternoon, but they were unable to realize this goal as they fell to the Gaels 1-0 in the regular season finale. The loss most likely ends the Toreros' season, giving them a 9-9-1 overall record and a 6-5-1 mark in WCC play, good for a tie with Portland for third place.

Both teams battled to a scoreless tie at the end of the first half before Saint Mary's (8-6-5, 7-3-2 WCC) tallied the game-winner in the 68th minute when Jose Cabeza took a cross from Emmanuel Sarabia and connected from 12 yards out.

The Toreros outshot Saint Mary's 7-5 in the second half but were unable to convert any of their five shots on goal in the match against Gael keeper Doug Herrick, who recorded five saves on the day. Overall, both teams tied with nine shots apiece.

Dan Delgado, Patrick Wallen and Christian Duke each had two shots for the Toreros, while Justin Grider and Augustin Cazarez each recorded a pair of shots for the Gaels.

Michael D'Arrigo made two saves in goal for the Toreros but dropped to 2-3-0 on the season.

These teams tied 0-0 at USD early this season.

Heading into the week four WCC teams were tied for second place, one point behind Saint Mary's. The Toreros had a chance at a conference title after defeating Loyola Marymount 1-0 this past Wednesday, but it would have required they defeat Saint Mary's, among other considerations with other WCC teams. Sunday marked the end of the regular season for all seven WCC teams with Saint Mary's winning the WCC championship and Santa Clara finishing second.
