Beavers Post 2-1 Road Victory over Seattle
SEATTLE, Wash. – The Oregon State men's soccer team defeated Seattle University, 2-1, in Seattle, Wash. on Friday. The Beavers improve to 4-1 on the season and 2-0 on the road.
"I thought we did a great job handling the momentum throughout the match and I think that our guys did a very exceptional job closing out the game," said head coach Terry Boss.
After a scoreless first half, graduate student Adrian Molina-Diaz scored the Beavers' first goal with an assist from junior Sofiane Djeffal in the 45th minute. A mere two minutes later, sophomore Mouhameth Thiam scored the game-winning goal, assisted by redshirt seniors Tsiki Ntsabeleng and Tyrone Mondi, to put Oregon State up 2-0 over the Redhawks. Seattle posted a goal in the 62nd minute, but the Beavers' defense held strong for the remainder of the game.
Defensively, senior Adrian Fernandez posted two saves. The Beavers took six corner kicks and tallied five shots on goal out of 10 shots total.
The Beavers will be back in action on Sept. 21 as they host UC Santa Barbara at Lorenz Field in Corvallis, Ore.
