NORTHRIDGE, Calif. - The University of San Diego women's soccer team avenged a loss to Cal State Northridge from earlier this season with a 1-0 non-conference victory over the Matadors Sunday evening at the Matador Soccer Field.
With the win, the Toreros improve to 4-7-0 overall and snap a four-match losing streak. With the loss, the Matadors fall to 3-3-3 overall.
San Diego scored the game-winner in the 52nd minute of action, as Lauren Dotson bowed the ball into the goal box, where Kelley McCloskey rose above all players and headed the ball into the back of the net for her first goal of the season, to lift the Toreros to victory.
Both teams had their opportunities to score throughout the match, and one of Northridge's best opportunities came in the 25th minute of action. Melissa Fernandez fired off a rocket shot, that was saved by USD's freshman goalkeeper McKenna Tollack, preserving the, then scoreless contest.
Tollack picked up her second shutout of the season in goal for the Toreros, as she allowed no goals and recorded four saves. Her counterpart, Cynthia Jacobo, was saddled with the loss, as she allowed one goal and recorded four saves.
The Toreros outshot the Matadors 17-11, and held a 6-1 advantage on corner kicks as well.
San Diego returns to action on Saturday, as they open West Coast Conference play on the road against the University of San Francisco in a 1 p.m. match.
