San Marcos, Calif. --Goals came early and often for both teams on Tuesday, but Cal State San Marcos was able to get the best of San Diego Christian College 4-2 in an afternoon battle in San Marcos.
The Cougars (6-4-1) got on the board first, just over one minute into the game. Off of a corner kick, Alex Brunsell put the ball in front of the net and was headed in by Jake Kaiser to give the Cougars a 1-0 lead. CSUSM would strike again four minutes later, when Brunsell delivered a through ball to Eric Lopez who was able to get the ball past keeper Cameron Riley to take a quick 2-0 lead.
SDCC (2-4-1) came right back in the 11th minute. Justin Picou drilled a long pass to Jordan Abad in the box, who placed the ball past the keeper to cut the lead in half. The rest of the physical first half would lead to the score remaining 2-0 at intermission.
CSUSM would strike once in the 51st minute and again late in the game in the 87th minute. SDCC’s Leandro Vienna would take advantage of a late penalty kick to cut the Cougar’s lead to 4-2, but the Hawks were unable to get any closer.
SDCC was outshot 23-8 for the game. Cameron Riley played all 90 minutes and recorded 5 saves for the Hawks.
SDCC continues their season, traveling to play La Sierra on Thursday, September 29th.
