Friday, Oct. 5 • 4:00 p.m.
vs. Sonoma State
Seawolf Soccer Field • Rohnert Park
CCAA HONORS: Senior forward Evan Walker has been named Wilson/California Collegiate Athletic Association Men's Soccer Player of the Week for the week of Sept. 24-30. Walker helped the Tritons close out an undefeated weekend of CCAA play with consecutive home victories over Cal State Dominguez Hills and Cal State San Bernardino.
DEFENSE WINS: Defense has been key for the Tritons, not allowing an opponent to score a single goal in the past four games. UCSD has seen a winning outcome in three of those. The other was the double overtime draw against the Coyotes earlier this month.
CLASH WITH THE NORTH: UCSD will finally face a CCAA squad from the North Division this Friday. After completing the first half of regular season, the clash should be a good test as each team holds nearly an identical record in conference. The Tritons, 5-1-2, are just one win ahead of the Seawolves who stand at 4-1-2.
WHEN WE LAST MET THE SEAWOLVES: Forward Evan Walker scored the decisive goal in the 106th minute as UC San Diego knocked off visiting Sonoma State 2-1 in double overtime. After the two squads traded goals early in the second half, the Tritons were able to come through with the game-winner late to defeat one of the top teams in the California Collegiate Athletic Association North Division.
SERIES HISTORY: The Tritons have struggled in the past when playing the Seawolves. UCSD looks to build off last year's victory as they post a 2-11-1 overall record when playing Somona State at the Division II level.
