As a team, the Dons rank 2nd in the WCC in shutouts (5) this season but are being outscored 16-14 overall.

The Saint Mary's Gaels (4-6-4, 2-2-2) had the week off following their 0-0 draw at USD on Oct. 20. Ismail Adam, Alex Braman, and Carlo Eikani each have three goals apiece this season, while Adam (3 goals, 2 assists) leads the team in points (8).

USD keeper Michael D'Arrigo tallied three saves in the match. Cal wound up outshooting USD 9-7 overall, but the Torero defense held the Golden Bears in check to preserve the shutout.

• The Toreros' 1-0 victory over Cal on Oct. 25 was the team's third win over a No. 1-ranked opponent in program history. Prior to that, USD had a 2-1 overtime road victory over then-No. 1 Santa Clara on Oct. 15, 1999 and a 3-0 shutout at home over then-No. 1 Portland on Nov. 6, 1992, the year USD played in the NCAA championship game.

• USD has already played seven overtime contests this season, the most since having eight in 2010.
• 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.

• USD and Gonzaga combined for 40 shots on Oct. 13, marking a combined season-high for USD this season. The Toreros also tied their single game high with 20 shots vs. Saint Mary's at home on Oct. 20.
