Tigers Take 1-0 Victory over Toreros

San Diego, Calif. – The Pacific men's soccer team completed another perfect road weekend as they topped host San Diego 1-0 on Sunday afternoon. The Tigers now sit 10-3 overall, 2-1 in WCC play and the Toreros drop to 5-5-3, 2-1 in conference action.

"I am extremely pleased with the work that the players put in today," says head coach Ryan Jorden. "A Sunday afternoon game after a Friday night overtime game is never easy, but our guys showed great character today to play good football and also to grind and get a result on the road against a very good San Diego team."

In the seventh minute Camden Riley streaked down the left side of the field into the box but was fouled, resulting in a penalty kick. Julio Cervantes lined up to put the Tigers on the board and did so on a kick that went to the right corner of the goal. Cervantes would finish the day with a team-high two shots on goal.

The defense did the rest for the Tigers as they handed San Diego their first conference loss of the year. The Toreros logged 19 shots on the day but goalie Curtis Goldsmith kept the ball out of the net, registering five saves in the process which ties a season high.

Cervantes' goal was his seventh on the year and sixth in his last seven games. The senior now has a team-high 17 points on the season to go with a WCC-best four game-winning goals.

The Orange and Black begin a three-game home stand next Saturday as they host Santa Clara before San Francisco (Oct. 29) and Portland (Nov. 6) come to town. Live stats and video will be available all three of these matches.
