August 18, 2017 (San Diego) - The SDSU men’s soccer team took the pitch on SDSU Sports Deck for the first time in 2017 tonight against Cal Poly Pomona.
Eager to start their season off right, redshirt senior forward Winston Sorhaitz gave the Aztecs an early 1-0 lead with a smooth deke around Broncos senior goalkeeper Jason Trejos in the 11th minute of the first half. The Aztecs played good defense all period and took that 1-0 lead to the locker room.
SDSU had excellent second half chances, but were unable to capitalize. The good news is that they didn't need to; defense played a big role in both halves and the Aztecs kicked off the season with a 1-0 win over the visiting Broncos.
SDSU is back in action next Friday when it travels to West Point to take on Army. First tip is at 4:30 p.m.
