Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - In the final game of the 2012 season, the University of San Diego women's soccer team went out in style, as they blanked Gonzaga University, 3-0, Friday evening at Torero Stadium.

The Toreros (8-10-0, 4-4-0 WCC) scored the only goal they would need in the first minute of action. Right as the whistle blew, the Toreros took the opening kickoff right up the field, and Emily Dillon quickly got the ball to Meghan O'Rourke, who touched the ball over the senior midfielder Mariah Hobbs, who in turn hit a one-timer into the back of the net just 16 seconds into the match. This was the second fastest goal in program history, only trailing current assistant coach Leigh Ann Robinson's 12-second goal against Loyola Marymount on Oct. 19, 2007.

The Toreros then doubled their lead in the 20th minute of play. Meggie Gulczynski took a corner kick for the a Toreros, and skied the ball into a crowded goal box, where Dani Russell then flicked the ball over the Mariah Butera, who in turn hit a one-timer into the back of the net to give USD a 2-0 cushion.

The goal scoring fury didn't stop there, as just four minutes later, the Toreros were able to put the match out of reach. O'Rourke took a corner for the Toreros, and she bowed the ball right to the head of Russell, who in turn headed the ball past the Gonzaga goalkeeper to put the match at its final of 3-0. With that goal, Russell finished the season with the team-lead in goals scored at four.

The Toreros completely dominated time of possession, and out shot the Zags 18-11, while also holding a territorial 12-0 advantage in corner kicks.



McKenna Tollack closed out her rookie campaign on a high note, as she recorded her fifth shutout of the season, allowing no goals and recording four saves. Her counterpart, Susan Brown, was saddled with the loss for the Zags, as she allowed there goals and recorded seven saves.
