Penalty kicks were the deciding factor in Westmont Men’s Soccer’s 1-0 win against #17 The Master’s (8-3-1, 2-2 GSAC). With the win, the Warriors (6-4-1, 3-2) moved into second place in the Golden State Athletic Conference standings.

“It is the kind of signature win that this group has been really close to getting but hasn’t quite gotten over the hump,” said Westmont head coach Dave Wolf. “Now, we have.”

“I thought The Master’s was very good,” noted Wolf. “Statistically, it turned out fairly even. If I had to judge the run of play, they had the edge. To keep a team that is that good going forward off of the board is a big accomplishment. Defensively, their back four were physically very powerful. It was very difficult to get anything against them.”

The first of the two critical penalty kicks came in the 64th minute after Westmont committed a foul in the box. Jonathan Brown took the shot for the Mustangs and sent a hard shot on the ground toward the left post. Westmont goalkeeper Josh Glover dove to his right and pushed the ball past the goalpost to prevent the score.

Warriors Put Exclamation Point on Golden Anniversary

Brandon Talsma

Westmont Men’s Soccer (5-4-1, 2-2 GSAC) capped a two-day celebration with a 1-0 Golden State Athletic Conference win over Arizona Christian (2-5-1, 1-3). Over the weekend, the Warriors celebrated the 50th anniversary of Westmont’s first varsity men’s soccer game as well as a half-century of Westmont Soccer.

Westmont’s Brandon Talsma scored the lone goal in the 50th minute of play.

“Tim Hieduk made the key play in the sequence,” noted Westmont head coach Dave Wolf. “The ball was running away from him a little bit, but he sensed the pressure and slipped a first time ball to Tanner (Wolf) in between a couple of defenders.

“Tanner got the ball in a good spot with a little bit of time to get turned. Brandon is an intelligent runner out front. Arizona Christian had been playing a high line and caught us offside a few times. But this time, our guys got the timing right and Brandon took the chance. The execution from those three was really good.”

Goalkeeper Josh Glover picked up his third shutout of the season, tallying two saves in the process.

Next up, the Warriors will host #18 The Master’s (8-2-1, 2-1) on Wednesday at Thorrington Field.

Saturday’s game, however, was only the final piece of a remarkable weekend. Alumni enjoyed breakfast and golf on Friday morning before meeting for the main event that night.

Wilton Quintero

For the second time this season, a Westmont Warrior has received Golden State Athletic Conference Men’s Soccer Player of the Week honors. Today, Wilton Quintero was named the Offensive Player of the Week after recording goals in each of the Warriors’ games last week and adding an assist.

The junior midfielder from Temple City served up a ball to Blake Joyner in Wednesday’s game against San Diego Christian that started the Warriors’ comeback from a 2-0 deficit and earned Quintero an assist. Eleven minutes later, Quintero delivered a penalty kick to tie the score at two goals each.

Saturday, Quintero delivered another goal via a penalty kick, this time providing the game winner against Hope International. Quintero has converted all five of his penalty kicks this season.

On September 14, Josh Glover was named GSAC Defender of the Week. Glover produced three saves in the Warriors’ scoreless tie against then #3 Marymount of California. Later in the week, he recorded another three saves in a 7-1 win over Sierra Nevada.

Two second-half goals lifted Westmont Men’s Soccer (4-3-2, 1-1 GSAC) to a 2-1 Golden State Athletic Conference win over Hope International on Saturday afternoon at Thorrington Feld. The Warriors fell in a 1-0 hole in the final minute of the first half after giving up an own goal, but rallied after the intermission to snatch the victory.

The equalizer came in the 77th minute, the result of Tanner Wolf’s second goal of the season. Asher Booth delivered a ball from the left side to the center of the field where Wolf was charging for the goal. Wolf let the ball bounce once, then produced a strike that found the back of the net.

The game winner came as the result of a penalty kick in the 83rd minute. Wilton Quintero was taken down inside the box and drew a foul against the Royals. For the fifth time this season, Quintero took the PK and for the fifth time this season, scored.

Blake Joyner

The Golden State Athletic Conference opener didn’t go as Westmont Men’s Soccer (3-3-1, 0-1 GSAC) would have hoped. After giving up two halftime goals, the Warriors evened the score in the second half with goals by Blake Joyner and Wilton Quintero. However, in just the second minute of overtime, San Diego Christian’s (6-3, 1-0) Francisco Ramirez scored a golden goal to give the Hawks the win.

In the 35th minute of play, Borja Suarez scored on a breakaway to put the Hawks up 1-0. Less than two minutes later, a cross from Joseph Fortini to Sebastian Carrion resulted in the ball finding the back of the net again and a 2-0 hole for the Warriors.

Westmont’s first goal came in the 57th minute after Asher Booth sent to the mouth of the goal that ended up at the feet of Quintero. Quintero passed the ball to the top of the box and Blake Joyner deposited it in the right corner. In the 81st minute, the Warriors were awarded a penalty kick. Quintero converted the attempt to tie the score.

Storm over Thorrington

After experiencing an offensive drought on Wednesday and playing to a scoreless double-overtime tie against #3 Marymount, Westmont Men’s Soccer (3-1-1) experienced an El Nino effect on a hot, muggy Saturday afternoon at Thorrington Field. Though the heavens never opened with water from above, a deluge of Warrior goals proved to be as refreshing, and as needed, as a summer storm would have been.

The aftermath of the event, was a sweet smelling 7-1 victory over Sierra Nevada (1-5), which is fielding a men’s soccer team for the first time.

The leading edge of the front came through in the 10th minute of play. Launching a corner kick from the northwest sector, senior midfielder Tanner Wolf found sophomore forward Kolby McInally who punched it into the net from 12 yards out.

Over the next 20 minutes, a swirl of activity was gathering strength over the Warriors’ western half of the field while calm settled over the eastern territory. Then lightning arched across the field in the form of a pass from senior midfielder Blake Joyner to Wolf at the top of the 18. Wolf redirected the bolt’s energy toward the net, giving the Warriors a 2-0 lead.

Goalkeeper Josh Glover

For the third time in six days, Westmont Men’s Soccer has played in an overtime game – getting a different result in each contest. Tonight, the Warriors took on #3 Marymount at Los Angeles Harbor College and played to a scoreless draw.

On last week’s trip to Ohio, the Warriors suffered a heartbreaking double-overtime 2-1 loss to #5 Rio Grande (Ohio) and then responded with a 2-1 overtime win over Point Park (Pa.) the next day.

In tonight’s game, Marymount took 13 shots, placing three of them on goal. The Warriors countered with 12 shots, seven of which were on target.

“It was actually a good game to watch,” said Westmont head coach Dave Wolf. “It was an open game with both teams moving up and down the field, both teams getting into the box and both teams getting chances. It was a draw, but not a conservative draw.”

Westmont’s best chance to score came in the 10th minute off the foot of Brandon Talsma.

Quintero’s PK is Golden

For Wilton Quintero, it was his second successful penalty kick in as many days. For Westmont Men’s Soccer (2-1), it meant coming back to Santa Barbara with a “W”. Quintero’s PK also served as the golden goal, giving Westmont a 2-1 overtime victory over Park Point of Pennsylvania (2-2).

“It was obviously good to find a way to win today,” said Westmont head coach Dave Wolf. “It was a difficult day coming back at four o’clock today after the game last night. We made six changes to the starting line-up, trying to put on some fresh legs and save the guys who had played some heavy minutes.”

Westmont took the lead in the 21st minute on the first collegiate goal by freshman Asher Booth.

“Dash Wultrain played a clever little ball over the top on the left hand side,” reported Wolf. “Asher picked up the ball wide on the left flank and went on a great solo dribble toward the top of the box. He cut in, got it on his right foot and let one fly. He definitely has some individual ability.”
