Westmont Men’s Soccer (3-2) earned its first win at home this season, posting a 3-2 win over Marymount California (2-3-2) on Tuesday afternoon at Thorrington Field.
The Warriors fell behind in the 13th minute when the Mariners’ Jonas Springer received a pass from Kevin Faye on the right side and drilled it into the Warriors’ net.
“I was proud of the way the guys were able to get on steady ground after the first 15 minutes,” said Westmont head coach Dave Wolf. “I thought we weren’t very alert out of the gate and they were on us. Even after they scored, we were able to keep fairly level and slowly work our way back into the game until we scored. After we scored, I thought we were pretty good.”
That first Westmont score came in the 37th minute after Tanner Wolf forwarded a pass to Matt Lariviere on the right side. Lariviere beat a defender on the dribble and then outmaneuvered the Marymount goalkeeper before firing into an empty net from 25 yards out.
