Oct. 12, 2008
BERKELEY - Sophomore forward Andrew Wiedeman scored his sixth goal of the season on Sunday afternoon against San Diego State at Edwards Stadium, but it wasn't enough for the fifth-ranked California men's soccer team to emerge victorious. The match ended in a 1-1 draw.
Cal (6-2-4, 1-1-2) struck first in the 11th minute of the contest. Sophomore Servando Carrasco fed Wiedeman with a long pass to the top of the box. Wiedeman broke free and was able to beat the keeper with a shot at the bottom near post. Junior Evan Sassano also earned an assist on the score.
Wiedeman is currently the team leader in goals (6) and points (16). In addition to the goal, Wiedeman was able to tally three shots on goal.
In the 34th minute, the Aztecs (3-5-2, 1-0-2) were able to tie the game on a penalty kick, as Evan Toft took the shot and was able to get it past Cal goalkeeper Stefan Frei. Two of the four goals Cal surrendered this weekend came on penalty kicks.
The Bears had the slight edge in shots, with a 12-11 advantage, and Cal also earned 12 corner kicks to SDSU's five.
Cal hits the road next week as it tangles with Stanford on The Farm. The Bears will face the Cardinal on Saturday, Oct. 18, at 7 p.m.
