SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The Toreros (3-5-3, 0-2-2) return home this weekend to host San Francisco and Saint Mary's in WCC action. USD will faceoff with the Dons at 7 pm on Friday, Oct. 18 at Torero Stadium, before welcoming the Gaels on Sunday, Oct. 20 for a 2 pm matinee. Both matches will feature live video and live stats with links available at

The San Francisco Dons (4-5-2, 1-2-1) are coming off a split of their WCC matches this past week. USF lost to Saint Mary's at home 4-1 before bouncing back for a 1-0 overtime win at Santa Clara. Danny Kirkland (2 goals), David Garrett (2 g), and Jesus Del Toro (2 g) each have four points to lead the USF offense. Chase Hauser has been the Dons' primary keeper this season, going 1-4-2 in goal with a pair of shutouts, 36 saves, and a 1.48 goals against average.

The Toreros own a 20-15-2 edge in the all-time series and have won the last two contests. Last season, USD topped USF 2-0 on the road on Oct. 14 and then 2-1 at home on Oct. 26 after Elijah Galbraith-Knapp scored the game-winner in the 85th minute of action.

The Saint Mary's Gaels (4-5-3, 2-1-1) posted a 4-1 road win over San Francisco this past Wednesday and suffered a 2-1 overtime loss at home to Santa Clara this past Sunday. Like the Toreros, the Gaels have been no stranger to playing extra minutes this season with six overtime contests under their belt already, including three of their four WCC matches. Ismail Adam (3 goals/1 assist), Alex Braman (3 g/1 a), and Will Kendall (2 g/3 a) share the team lead with seven points this season. Andre Rawls has seen the bulk of the minutes in goal for SMC, posting a record of 4-4-2 with two shutouts, 38 saves, and a 1.13 goals against average. As a team, SMC ranks third in the WCC in goals (16) this season.

USD leads the all-time series by a 26-9-5 margin after winning both meetings in 2012- a 2-0 home victory that clinched the WCC title for the Toreros on Nov. 9 and a 3-2 win at Saint Mary's on Sept. 30 in a wild affair that saw SMC tie the score 2-2 with a pair of goals in the 79th minute before Dan Delgado notched the game-winner for USD in the 81st minute.

USD lost 2-1 at Portland this past Friday before rallying back for a 3-3 draw at Gonzaga on Sunday. The Pilots scored two first-half goals to take an early 2-0 advantage that they never let go of. Julian Ringhof scored his first goal of the season for USD in the 81st minute off an assist from Merlin Hoeckendorff. Against the Zags, Connor Brandt scored twice on penalty kicks, including the tying goal in the 87th minute that evened the score at 3-3 and forced overtime. Sergio Lopez added his second goal of the season in the 67th minute after heading in a Brandt corner kick.

• Sr. GK Michael D'Arrigo set a new career high with 10 saves at Gonzaga on Oct. 13. His previous career high was nine saves vs. UC Santa Barbara on Sept. 14, 2012. The last time a USD keeper recorded double-digit saves was on Oct. 15, 2000 when Justin Neerhof had 10 saves in a 2-2 double overtime draw at LMU.
• USD ranks 23rd in the NCAA in saves per game (5.27) this season. D'Arrigo ranks 38th in the NCAA with 48 saves.
• USD and Gonzaga combined for 40 shots on Oct. 13, marking a season-high for USD this season.
• All of Jr. MF Connor Brandt's three goals this season have come on penalty kicks after Brandt tallied two PK scores at Gonzaga on Oct. 13 and one at UCLA on Sept. 15.
• Brandt is 2nd in the WCC in assists (5) and tied for 3rd in points (11). D'Arrigo ranks 2nd in the WCC in saves (48).
• USD was without five starters in their 3-2 loss at UCLA on Sept. 15, which allowed Rom Appel and Dannny McDermott to earn their first-career starts, while Shane Thompson, Alex Stimpfl, Lundon Attisha, and Niccolo Piacentini each saw their first action of the fall.
