Posa's Goal in 88th Minute Gives Toreros 2-1 Win Over Aztecs
SAN DIEGO, Calif.- It was clear to the nearly 3,000 spectators in attendance from the outset that this was no ordinary non-conference matchup as the University of San Diego men's soccer team used a late goal by senior forward Stephen Posa to defeat cross-town rival San Diego State 2-1 Sunday night from Torero Stadium.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. The Toreros open up the 2013 season at San Diego State on Friday, Aug, 30. Kickoff is set for 7 pm from the SDSU Sports Deck. This will be the first game of the Courtyard Marriott San Diego Central Soccer Tournament, but the only game that USD will play in that tournament. Live stats will be available through both www.usdtoreros.com as well as the SDSU official athletic site (www.goaztecs.com).

These teams last met Sept. 4, 2011 as the Toreros took a 2-1 home victory. USD and SDSU last played at SDSU's home field Sept. 6, 2009, with USD winning 1-0. The Aztecs lead the all-time series 6-11-2.

San Diego State finished the 2012 season with a 7-9-3 overall record and a 1-7-2 mark in Pac-12 play. The Aztecs return their top two goal scorers from a year ago in seniors Jordan Ongaro (7 goals) and Kody Duff (6 goals), in addition to 2012 Pac-12 first-teamer Blake Wise (13 pts in 2012) and top goalkeeper Blake Hylen (50 saves in 2012). Overall as a team last year, the Aztecs outscored opponents 34-29 and outshot opponents 308-245.

LAST TIME OUT...
USD wrapped up one of their best seasons ever in 2012 by advancing to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament, where they lost at No. 3 Georgetown 3-1 on Dec. 1, 2012. Julian Ringhof scored USD's lone goal of that contest with a header off a corner kick that put USD up 1-0 in the 49th minute. The Hoyas would go on to answer with three unanswered goals, however, to capture the victory. The last time USD advanced that far into the NCAA Tournament was when they played in the national championship game in 1992.

TORERO TIDBITS...
• The Toreros are ranked No. 16 in the 2013 NSCAA National Preseason Poll, which was released on Aug. 13. The Toreros, who finished the 2012 season ranked No. 12, were the only West Coast Conference team to appear in the poll.
• USD finished the 2012 season with a 14-9-0 (9-3-0 WCC) record and won their first WCC title since 2009. The Toreros topped Saint Mary's 2-0 at home on Nov. 9 to clinch the WCC crown.
• USD returns four All-WCC performers from last season: Sr. M Elijah Galbraith-Knapp (2nd Team), Sr. D Julian Ringhof (2nd Team), Jr. GK Drew Ilijevski (honorable mention), and Torrey DeArmas (All-Freshman).
• The Toreros led the WCC in goals (22) last season during conference play, ranked 2nd in points (59) and tied for 3rd in assists (15).

TORERO SOCCER NOTES
TOREROS TABBED SECOND IN PRESEASON POLL: The University of San Diego men's soccer team was picked to finish second in the 2013 West Coast Conference Preseason Poll. As an early indication of the wide open race for this year's WCC crown, the seven first-place votes from the conference coaches were scattered among five different teams. USD received two first-place votes and 45 points overall, while Santa Clara was voted to win the conference after collecting 47 total points and one first-place vote. Loyola Marymount was picked for third after taking home two first-place votes, followed by San Francisco and Saint Mary's, who each picked up one first-place vote apiece. Portland and Gonzaga rounded out the final two spots in the poll.

GALBRAITH-KNAPP AND RINGHOF NAMED PRESEASON ALL-WCC: Seniors Elijah Galbraith-Knapp and Julian Ringhof were named to the 2013 Preseason All-WCC team. Galbraith-Knapp, a senior from San Diego, was a second-team All-WCC selection last season after starting all 21 games he appeared in in the midfield. He tallied three goals, including two game-winners, to go along with an assist for seven points overall on the year. Ringhof, a fifth-year senior defender from Sexau, Germany, turned in a strong year in 2012 after transferring to USD from Cal State Los Angeles. Ringhof was a third-team NSCAA All-Region selection as well an All-WCC second-teamer. Ringhof also scored a pair of goals on the year, including one in USD's Elite Eight loss at Georgetown in last year's NCAA Tournament.

BIG SHOES TO FILL: The Toreros lost eight starters from their 2012 Elite Eight squad, but a few players in particular will be especially difficult to replace. Midfielder Dan Delgado, who was drafted in the second round (33rd overall) of the MLS SuperDraft by the San Jose Earthquakes, left USD tied for 5th in career assists (23) and ranked 8th in the NCAA in assists last year (10). Likewise, forward Patrick Wallen, a 2012 NSCAA first-team All-Region selection, finished his USD career 3rd in career goals (30) and 7th in career points (71). Midfielder James Cohn also graduated tied for 1st in career games started (78).

USD HONOR ROLL: The Toreros had a total of 10 All-WCC selections, including WCC Coach of the Year Seamus McFadden (8th time). USD's first-team honorees were MF James Cohn, MF Dan Delgado and F Patrick Wallen. Second-team selections were MF Christian Duke, MF Elijah Galbraith-Knapp and D Julian Ringhof. Honorable mention selections were D Matthew Chavez, MF Conor McFadden and GK Drew Ilijevski, while F Torrey DeArmas as an All-Freshman Team pick. The six first- and second-team honorees tied the 1992 squad for the second-most in team history.

TOREROS PLACE THREE ON ALL-REGION SQUAD: MF Dan Delgado and F Patrick Wallen were first-team NSCAA All-Far West Region selections in 2012, while D Julian Ringhof was a third-team honoree.

TOREROS ON THE NATIONAL STAGE: MF Connor Brandt was named TopDrawerSoccer.com Men's College Soccer Player of the Week on Nov. 19, 2012, while Dan Delgado was named College Soccer News National Player of the Week on the same day, and was also named to Top Drawer Soccer's National Team of the Week.

DELGADO AND DUKE GET MLS CALLS: MF Dan Delgado was drafted by the San Jose Earthquakes in the second round (33rd overall) of the 2012 MLS SuperDraft, while MF Christian Duke was taken by Sporting Kansas City with the 14th pick of the MLS Supplemental Draft.
