In Goal: Brendan Roslund (12 GP/13 GA/1.02 GAA/42 SV/5-5-2/3 SHO)
Notables: USF is coming off a 2-0 loss to the Toreros on Oct. 14... The Toreros and Dons split the season series in 2011... USF's WCC victories have come against Gonzaga, Saint Mary's and LMU... The Dons hold a slight edge in goals this season with a 14-13 advantage over their opponents... USF is tied with USD in shots (80) in WCC play.
ONE AFTER ANOTHER: The Toreros have now won five games in a row, their longest winning streak since a five game stretch in 2009, the last year the Toreros made it to the NCAA Tournament. That season USD started WCC play 5-1 in their first six WCC contests- the same record USD has this year through six WCC games.
WEEK'S TOP PERFORMER: RS-So. Sergio Lopez won his first career WCC Player of the Week honor on Oct. 8 after notching goals in each of USD's victories. He scored his first goal of the season in a 4-3 home win over Portland on Oct. 5 before adding a game-winner in a 2-0 victory over Gonzaga on Oct. 7. Lopez was the second Torero to earn WCC player of the week recognition after Ellijah Galbraith-Knapp won the honor on Sept. 10.
RISING TO THE TOP: After the first three weeks of WCC play, the Toreros are in a tie with Santa Clara for first place. Both USD and SCU are 5-1-0 in WCC play, but SCU holds the head-to-head so far after a win over USD in both teams' WCC opener on Sept. 28. Behind USD and SCU are Saint Mary's and San Francisco with three WCC wins apiece.
STEPPING ON THE GAS: The Toreros have scored 13 goals in their past four games, surpassing their scoring toal in their first eight games combined. Their 13 goals in WCC play leads the conference. In their 4-3 win over Portland on Oct. 5, USD established a season high in goals (4) and points (12) and tied their season high with 19 shots in the contest.
CARPE DIEM: F Sergio Lopez and F Torrey DeArmas have quickly made the most out of their brief time in the starting lineup. Lopez has started the last five games after opening the season on the bench and has scored goals in three of his past four contests. Meanwhile, DeArmas joined the starting lineup at the beginning of WCC play and notched a goal and an assist in USD's win over Portland on Oct. 5.
JUST COMING UP SHORT: While the scores haven't seemed to do the games justice, USD has been very competitive with the two Top-25 opponents they have faced so far this season. In both games the Toreros have held their opponents in check defensively by not allowing a goal in the first half in either matchup. Against No. 13 UCI (8/24), the Toreros held a 7-6 first half advantage in shots, while against No. 6 UCSB (9/14), USD got a number of outstanding first half saves from GK Michael D'Arrigo. With the exception of a nine minute span where the Gauchos scored three goals, the Toreros were right in the mix.
THIRD TIME'S THE CHARM: MF Dan Delgado became the third consecutive Torero to win WCC Player of the Year honors after taking home the recognition last season. He followed current teammate Patrick Wallen (2010) and Ryan Peterman (2009). Delgado tallied a total of nine points in 2011 (2g/5a) while ranking second in the WCC in assists during WCC play (5). He has led the team in assists the past two seasons.
LEAVING HIS MARK: Sr. F Patrick Wallen enters the 2012 campaign tied for seventh in USD history in career goals scored (22). Wallen had a career-high 12 goals in 2010 and scored three goals in 2011. USD's all-time leader in goals scored is Guillermo Jara, who scored 51 goals from 1992-95.
BREAKING IN: Despite missing time in 2011 due to injury, RS-Jr. GK Michael D'Arrigo entered the 2012 season in the top-10 in three categories in the USD record book: 8th in career saves (57), 8th in both career games started in goal and games played in goal (21/23) and 9th in career shutouts (6).
