Beavers Ground Falcons, 4-1
CORVALLIS, Ore. – The Oregon State men's soccer team defeated Air Force, 4-1, on Monday. The Beavers are now 2-0-0 (0-0-0 Pac-12) on the season.
"I was really proud of the way the guys started," said head coach Terry Boss. "Air Force is a good team, they make it really difficult to play. We were able to implement some ideas that we worked on over the last couple of days and it's always fun to see those come to fruition. It was nice to get a number of different guys on the field and I was pleased with the collective team performance."
At the 12-minute mark, redshirt senior Tsiki Ntsabeleng scored a solo goal, putting the Beavers up, 1-0, over the Falcons. Redshirt senior Tyrone Mondi posted the Beavers' second goal with an assist from Ntsabeleng in the 32nd minute. Ntsabeleng found the net again at the 54th minute, with assists from Mondi and freshman Adrian Molina-Diaz. Sophomore Mouhameth Thiam notched Oregon State's final goal of the night in the 71st minute with an assist from Ntsabeleng.
The Beavers tallied eight shots on goal out of 15 shots total and took two corner kicks over the duration of the game.
The Beavers will travel to Portland, Ore. for a 7 p.m. clash against the Portland Pilots on Sept. 3, before returning to Lorenz Field to take on Grand Canyon on Sept. 6 at 6 p.m.
