Sherwood Lifts USD to Victory over Zags
Senior midfielder Julia Sherwood’s third goal of the season lifted the University of San Diego women’s soccer team to a thrilling 1-0 West Coast Conference win over Gonzaga University Saturday evening at Torero Stadium.

The Toreros (6-9, 4-1 WCC) have won five of their past six games and open the weekend Thursday against the Pilots (5-10-1, 3-5 WCC). USD wraps up the weekend Saturday at Gonzaga.

Both games will be streamed on TheW.tv and live statistics will be available via USDToreros.com.

LAST TIME OUT

• USD split a pair of contests this past weekend, defeating LMU, 3-2, and dropping a 3-0 decision against No. 13 Pepperdine.

Kelsi Dantu scored two penalty kick goals against LMU to help lead USD to its fifth consecutive victory. Summer Mason scored her sixth goal in five contests in the win.

Amber Michel made seven saves but it was not enough to slow down No. 13 Pepperdine, as the Waves scored three first-half goals to snap USD's five-game winning streak.

MASON LEADS THE OFFENSE

Summer Mason has been a bright spot up top for the Toreros and leads the team with 17 points on eight goals and an assist. She utilizes her speed and quick change of pace to evade defenders and set up opportunities for USD in the final third.

Mason scored her first collegiate hat trick to lead San Diego to a 3-1 victory against Pacific (Oct. 7). It was the first hat trick by a Torero since Stephanie Ochs on August 21, 2011, in a 3-1 victory against USC. She was named the WCC Player of the Week (Oct. 10) for her standout performance.

QUALITY DEFENDING

USD's defense has been excellent this season and been a key component to keeping the Toreros within striking distance in each game.

Michel has registered four or more saves in 9-of-15 games this season, including a career-best 11 stops in a 2-1 victory at BYU (Sept. 29). She made seven saves in the first half at CSUN (Sept. 24) - a career best for one half.

The Toreros backline - consisting primarily of Emma Barrow, Courtney Coate, Natalie Copenhaver, Abby King and Tara Meier - have done well to limit the opposition's attack through the center of the field and push attackers out wide.

PORTLAND SERIES HISTORY

The Toreros are 6-17-2 all-time against the Pilots but have won the past three meetings and four of the past six.

GONZAGA SERIES HISTORY

USD is 18-5 all-time against the Bulldogs and have won seven of the past 10 meetings. The Toreros won last year's meeting, 1-0.

LIEBERMAN'S FIRST SEASON

Head coach Louise Lieberman is in her first season as a head coach with USD during 2017. She is the fourth head coach in program history.

Lieberman joined the Toreros after serving as the assistant head coach at UCLA for the past eight seasons. While with the Bruins, she helped lead the team to seven NCAA Tournament appearances, two College Cup appearances and the 2013 NCAA Championship - the first in program history.

Lieberman was a four-year letterwinner as a player at UCLA from 1995-98, and was a second-time All-Pac-12 selection in 1995. She helped the Bruis claim its first two Pac-12 championships in 1997 and 1998.
