SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego women's soccer team dropped two spots to No. 15 in the latest NSCAA top-25 poll. The Toreros are also ranked No. 24 in the latest Soccer Times top-25 poll.
USD posted a 1-1-0 record in its opening weekend of play, as they defeated Cal State Northridge 3-0 on Friday in the season-opened at Torero stadium, before being upset by Cal State Bakersfield 2-1 on Sunday in Bakersfield. In Friday's game, USD had three different players record a goal. At the 44:08 mark. Natalie Vinti took a corner kick for the Toreros and the ball volleyed around a bit in front of the goal before freshman Sierra Ferreira found it and passed the ball to freshman striker Erica Peeples, who then hit a one-timer past the Northridge goalkeeper to give USD a 1-0 lead going into the break. The Toreros then added a second goal early in the second half as Stephanie Ochs controlled a pass from Ferreira, and split a pair defenders before hitting a laser strike into the top corner of the goal. The Toreros then capped the scoring for the day when Lexi Deol put back a rebound off a Katie Bavasi shot to put the match at its final of 3-0. Then on Sunday, USD scored first, as Ferreira scored her first collegiate goal in the 68th minute of action, as she controlled a pass from Natalie Garcia, and chipped in the ball over the goalkeepers head and past a CSUB defender, to give USD a brief 1-0 lead. Bakersfield then scored two goals within two minutes of USD's goal to come-from-behind and claim the win. USD did outshoot the Roadrunners 20-10 in the match.
The Toreros will return to action on Friday when they host No. 9 UCLA in a 7 p.m. non-conference match inside the friendly confines of Torero Stadium.
