Men's soccer team add two wins over the weekend

After starting conference play 1-1 last week, the seawolves were hungry for redemption.

“It first starts off in practice,” said Junior Forward Andrew Ogilvy. “After losing a hard fought game against san Bernardino we knew we had to sharpen up and it showed on Monday.” 

The Sonoma State University Seawolves were tested friday afternoon after surrendering a goal to Cal State East Bay less than one minute into the game. 

This was only fuel to the Sonoma State fire as the Seawolves quickly answered back with a goal of their own in minute eight by Armando Colonel. 

It was all Sonoma State from there on. 

Maury Lopez picked a good time to score his first goal as a Seawolf in minute 30 of the contest to give Sonoma State a 2-1 lead right before halftime. Andrew Ogilvy added his own first goal of the season as insurance in minute 82 to seal the victory.

After winning on Friday, the Seawolves were halfway to accomplishing their goal of winning two games this week, and they did just that. The fire that was ignited in Friday’s game burned twice as bright on Sunday as Sonoma State shutout Cal State Stanislaus on their own home field in Turlock. 

Andrew Ogilvy carried the momentum from his goal the previous game into this one, scoring two goals of his own and assisting on another. Raad Aljabi and Luis Mendoza each added a goal of their own to make it a 4-0 blowout of the contending Warriors. Mitch North proved reliable once again as he had four saves on the day.

“The feeling is phenomenal,” said Ogilvy. “After the ref blew the final whistle against Stanislaus you could see it in everyone’s eyes, we did it, and we bloody well deserved it. Now going into next week it’s all positivity. We know that we can beat any team in this conference and we have shown it.” 

The Seawolves definitely set out to win this week, and they did just that improving there CCAA record to 3-1.

The team heads south next week to San Diego looking to keep the momentum rolling against the Tritons of UC San Diego on Friday, and the Cougars of San Marcos on Sunday.
