Cal Hangs On To Defeat Oregon State, 3-2
Oct. 24, 2003
CORVALLIS, Ore. - California jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first 35 minutes of the game and hung on to defeat Oregon State, 3-2, Friday afternoon at Lorenz Field. The three first-half goals were the most the Golden Bears have scored in a half this season.
Cal (7-5-3 overall, 2-3-0 Pac-10) got on the scoreboard early when midfielder Kimberly Yokers' corner kick curved to the far post where OSU's Kelli Washburn attempted to clear the ball but misplayed it into the Beavers' net for an own goal and a 1-0 Cal lead in the seventh minute.
In the 21st minute, midfielder Kassie Doubrava played a ball wide to defender Amy Willison, who centered a pass to forward Alilvia Mazura in the box where she scored her second goal of the year to give Cal a 2-0 advantage.
Forward Dania Cabello scored what proved to be the winning goal in the 35th minute when Willison put another accurate pass into the box and Cabello headed in a shot to make it 3-0. The goal was Cabello's second of 2003.
Tessa Baker brought Oregon State (5-8-2, 1-2-1 Pac-10) to within 3-1 at the 77:24 mark with her team-best ninth goal of the year.
OSU's Brianna Monka capitalized on a penalty kick with 1 minute, three seconds remaining in the game to make it 3-2, but that's as close as the Beavers could get.
The Bears outshot the Beavers, 14-13, with Cabello leading Cal with four shots off the bench. Anna Key made four saves for Cal, while Melissa Onstad and Amy Johnson combined for three saves for Oregon State.
Cal looks for its first weekend sweep of the Pac-10 season against Oregon Sunday at 1 p.m. in Eugene.
