Cal Falls Short to #7 SMU, 1-0

Sept. 8, 2002

The California men's soccer team (1-2-1) took their second loss of the season this afternoon against #7 (Soccertimes) Southern Methodist (2-1-1) at Edwards Stadium.

SMU's Diego Walsh scored the only goal needed in the game less than two minutes into the second half off of an assist by Duke Hashimoto. The 10-yard shot fired into the left corner of the box, out of reach for senior Bear goalie Josh Saunders. Saunders recorded four saves for the day, to SMU's keeper, T.J. Tomasso's five.

Cal was out shot in the match, nine to the Mustangs 14, yet both teams managed to get off five shots on goal in the effort.

A total of five yellow cards were given out, two to Cal (Tyson Wahl and Kyle Navarro) and three to SMU (Kellan Zindel, Asher Hamilton and Kevin Hudson).
