It was a rare offensive explosion for the Cal Poly soccer team on Sunday, the Mustangs got three goals across in a 3-1 win at San Jose State. The win was the Mustangs first of the season, they improve to 1-2 while San Jose State drops to 0-2.
Cal Poly scored 1:48 into the match as junior forward Mackenzie Pridham controlled the ball inside the San Jose State penalty area and weaved through traffic before scoring the first shot attempt of the day past the Spartan goalkeeper. 57 seconds later, junior forward Chris Bernardi lifted a pass toward the far post for senior midfielder Chris Gaschen, who headed home his seventh career goal.
In the 19th minute, San Jose State scored on it's first shot attempt. Senior forward Dylan Murphy headed a pass past Mustang sophomore goalkeeper Chase Hauser. Cal Poly took a 2-1 lead to the half.
The Mustangs scored 1:44 into the second half as freshman forward Matt LaGrassa earned his first collegiate point on an assist to junior forward Ian Clark.
Hauser made his first start in net since earning a win against 7th ranked UC-Irvine on September 28, 2011. Hauser had three saves against San Jose State.
Cal Poly didn't score in its first two matches and hadn't scored multiple goals in a match since a 2-1 win over UCSB last October.
The Mustangs open a five-match home stand against Valparaiso (1-1-1) next Sunday. Cal Poly's home opener is scheduled to kick-off at 1:00pm.
