A date in the Golden State Athletic Conference Tournament Semifinals with longtime rival #20 Biola (14-3-1) stood between Westmont Men’s Soccer’s (11-7) and their hope to obtain an automatic bid to the national tournament in next Saturday’s GSAC Final.
At the end of the match, it was the Eagles – not the Warriors – who departed Al Barbour Field with a GSAC Finals berth. In heartbreaking fashion, Biola derailed Westmont’s dream, outshooting the Warriors 28-7, and outscoring the Warriors 2-1.
“I thought our guys maxed it out today,” expressed Westmont head coach Dave Wolf. “Playing on the road against a team that had a bye was a huge task for our group. They gave everything that they had to give, and as a result of that, they’ll get through this pretty quickly. It’s painful right now, but they’ll soon be able to reflect on what really was a tremendous season for our team.”
