EXTRA TIME: The Tritons faced difficult opponents the past two weeks on the road, with three of four games going into extra time. Matches against San Francisco State and Cal State San Bernardino ended as double overtime draws.

WHEN WE LAST MET THE TOROS: The Tritons suffered a 3-2 loss at Triton Soccer Field on Oct. 16, 2011. Trailing 3-0 late in the second half, UCSD's Cory Wolfrom and Alec Arsht scored back-to-back goals to pull within one, but ultimately came up short.

SERIES HISTORY vs. CAL STATE DOMINGUEZ HILLS: The Tritons have struggled against the Toros as they currently hold a 3-15-4 record against CSUDH. Two of the past four contests have been decided by one goal, with one of them being an overtime draw.

SERIES HISTORY vs. CAL STATE SAN BERNARDINO: The two squads have a history of playing close matches as the series record stands at 16-16-6.

WHEN WE LAST MET THE COYOTES: The above noted stat includes the previous meeting this season at Premier Field. Gavin Lamming scored his first goal of the year as UC San Diego earned a 1-1 draw at CSUSB. UCSD held its lead until the 77:25 mark when Ricardo Velasco scored on a penalty kick to the right side, knotting the score and eventually taking the game to extra time where neither team would find the back of the net.

A WEEKEND OF FIRSTS: This past weekend marked freshman goalkeeper Cameron McElfresh's first minutes as he played at San Francisco State Sunday. Senior forward Scott MacBride's first goal of the season came as the game winner against Cal Poly Pomona, giving the Tritons the regular season sweep over the Broncos.
