SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.- The University of San Diego men's soccer team suffered a 4-0 defeat at the hands of the San Francisco Dons Friday night from USF's Negoesco Stadium. Four different Dons tallied goals as USD (7-6-1, 4-2-1 WCC) suffered their worst defeat since the 2004 season.
The Toreros held an 18-10 edge in shots on the night, but Brendan Roslund's 11 saves prevented USD from taking advantage of the opportunities.
The Dons (6-6-2, 4-2-1 WCC) got on the board in the 21st minute when David Romney took a pass following a corner kick and put it past Torero keeper Adam Campbell from point blank range.
Right before the end of the first half, USF struck again with a score from Vegard Karlsen in the 44th minute that put the Dons up 2-0.
In the second half, San Francisco kept the momentum in their favor when Taylor Kreuger scored in the 57th minute.
Kyle McLeod finished up the scoring for the Dons with his 63rd minute goal that gave USF their final 4-0 lead.
Conor McFadden led the Toreros with three shots on the night, including two on goal. Five other Toreros had two shots apiece.
Campbell recorded two saves before leaving the game in the 66th minute. He was relieved by Michael D'Arrigo, who finished out the contest making one save in his 23 minutes of work. Roslund improved to 6-4-2 in goal on the year, while Campbell dropped to 7-4-1, breaking his five-match WCC shutout streak.
The last time the Toreros lost by at least four goals was in 2004 when they were shutout 4-0 at No. 4 UCLA.
The Toreros return to action on Sunday, Oct. 30th when they wrap up their Bay Area road trip at Santa Clara for a 2pm kickoff.
