Westmont Men’s Soccer (7-3-2, 4-1-2 GSAC) settled for a 1-1 tie with Concordia (8-3-2, 4-1-2) in today’s Golden State Athletic Conference game at Thorrington Field. The Warriors scored in just the second minute and held on to a 1-0 lead until giving up the equalizer in the 75th minute of play.
“You saw a couple of good goalkeeper performances today,” said Westmont head coach Dave Wolf. “I think Josh Glover is having a great year. One of the issues that we have eliminated this year is that we have not given up any bad goals – at all. And, Josh has taken a couple of pretty sure goals away.
“On paper, this match-up was the team in the league that scores the most goals (Concordia) versus the team in the league that concedes the least (Westmont). Holding them to one goal is noteworthy and obviously, Josh played a big part.”
The Warriors’ early goal came after Austin Lack dribble down the field and fired a ball that ricocheted off Concordia goalkeeper Jordan Brinkley’s foot and up into the air. Matt Lariviere was on the right side of the net and headed the ball into the goal for the score.
