Men's soccer raise unbeaten streak to seven

Rain or shine, it doesn’t matter, the show must go on for Seawolf soccer. 

Despite the home game being forced to move to Petaluma because of the rain, it didn’t stop the Sonoma State men’s soccer team from getting a 2-1 win over the Cal State Monterey Bay Otters.

During minute 32, the Seawolves took advantage when Evan Roehrig was able to break away and get past Monterey Bay’s goalkeeper to score his second goal of the season. 

In the second half, the momentum belonged to the Seawolves. They were able to increase their lead when Maury Lopez scored in minute 55. 

It was no time to celebrate as the Otter’s attempted to make a comeback, which fell short despite a goal from Otter Michael Maul to make it 2-1. 

The Seawolves defense were able to hold off the Otters and preserve a 2-1 victory over Cal State Monterey Bay.

“Aside from the goal we allowed, our defense was solid,” said Head Coach Marcus Ziemer. 

“Eric Alvarado and Ryan Rohane are tough in the middle and Dane Shaffar and Devin Anderson do a great job wide. All four of them are tenacious but can also handle the ball in build up.”

With a seven game unbeaten streak, the Seawolves stand in second place in the CCAA standings with 17 points and a 6-2-5 record overall. This puts them only two points behind first place UC San Diego.

“We are looking forward to building off our last game,” said Seawolf forward Armando Coronel. 

“We have a lot of players coming back from injuries and we want to get back on track. We are excited to get back on the field and close out strong.”

On Wednesday at 12:30 p.m., the Seawolves will be hosting the visiting Humboldt State at the Seawolf Soccer Field. 

The Seawolves will be playing their final regular season road game on Friday at Chico State before the CCAA championship tournament at the end of February.
