Men’s Season Comes to an End

October 30th, 2005

The Golden State Athletic Conference and NAIA Region II men’s soccer meetings were held on the Westmont campus today, but there was no home field advantage for the Warriors. Westmont just missed qualifying for the Region II Tournament which begins on Wednesday. Had the Warriors earned just one more point in the standings, they would have made the field of eight teams.

Azusa Pacific drew the number one seed and will face Menlo at home. Point Loma Nazarene, whom the Warriors beat on Saturday 2-1, was seeded second and will play in San Diego against Biola. Third seeded Concordia will host Fresno Pacific after having defeated the Sunbirds on Saturday to gain a share of the GSAC championship. The fourth game will feature two more teams from the California Pacific Conference with fourth seeded Dominican hosting Holy Names. All games begin at 1:00 p.m.

Men’s Soccer Sinks Sea Lions

October 29th, 2005

Needing a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, Westmont Men’s Soccer defeated #19 Point Loma Nazarene 2-1 this afternoon at Russ Carr Field. The win gives the Warriors a chance of participating in the NAIA Region II Championships which begin on Wednesday, depending on what happens in other conference and regional games later this evening.

After a scoreless first half, the Sea Lions (12-5-0, 6-4-0) took a 1-0 advantage just one minute and 30 seconds into the second half. Brian Thames took a ball in the center of the field, 25 yards from the goal and passed it to Brad Lewis who was ten yards out on the right side of the net. Lewis’ shot found the back of the net to put Point Loma Nazarene on top.

The stalemate insured the Sea Lions a second place finish in the Golden State Athletic Conference. The Warriors will finish in third place. Biola plays at Hope International this evening and if the Eagles win, they will pull into a tie for third with Westmont.
