LAST TIME OUT

The Toreros went 1-0-1 this past weekend, tying Portland 1-1 and earning a 2-1 comeback overtime victory against Gonzaga.

Djordje Babic scored his first goal of the year and Thomas Olsen made six saves in net to help lead San Diego to a 1-1 double-overtime draw against Portland.

Facing a 1-0 deficit after an early Pilots (6-5-1, 1-0-1 WCC) goal, Babic provided a perfect finish to the top corner of the goal on a well-laid pass by Miguel Berry in the 64th minute to level the score, 1-1. It was Babic's first goal of the season and Berry's team-leading third assist of the year.

Miguel Berry scored his team-leading fifth goal of the season to propel San Diego to a 2-1 overtime victory against Gonzaga.

Ulber Perez netted his first goal of the year in the 70th minute to level the score at 1-1 against the Bulldogs.
