Westmont Men’s Soccer has announced the signing of six recruits for the 2014 recruiting class. These student-athletes, with an outstanding combined grade-point average of 3.78, will matriculate at Westmont in the fall. All six are from California.

“This 2014 recruiting class will continue to build on the momentum that was established during our fall season,” said Westmont head coach Dave Wolf. “Similar to the 2013 class, I think the most important attribute of this class is that they are all an excellent fit for the culture of our program. They know the guys on the team well because of their visits to campus, and have already been able to weave themselves into the fabric of our team.”

Wolf commented, “This is another exemplary recruiting class in terms of academic fit for Westmont. Each recruit has impressive classroom credentials. This academic integrity is a vital ingredient to our program. We want players who are able to balance their class work with a demanding soccer schedule. This is also a highly talented recruiting class—with three players having USSF Academy experience (the highest level of club soccer available), and the rest playing on elite club teams in California. All six players were named All-League in their respective high school conferences and many advanced far into the CIF playoffs.”

Tough Loss Spoils Westmont’s Postseason Journey

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.”

Offensive Efficiency Propels Warriors to GSAC Semifinals

Submitted by: jwyatt - November 6th, 2013

By Jordan Wyatt:

Four Warriors – four shots on goal – four goals – one more guaranteed game. The resounding melody of the day for Westmont Men’s Soccer (11-6) was undoubtedly offensive efficiency, eventually culminating in new life.

For the third time this season (and for the second game in a row) Westmont defeated the Vanguard Lions (8-8-1), this time by a score of 4-2. Once again, the offense was diverse, with scores provided by senior forward Rick McCarthy, junior midfielder Cody Howen, senior defender Marcos Lopez, and senior midfielder Sean Siemens.

The Warriors’ first postseason victory since 2009 was widely attributed to the team’s multiplicity on offense. “That’s been us this year. We spread the ball around,” declared Westmont head coach Dave Wolf. We didn’t pass the ball tremendously well today, but once again, we had players deliver individual moments.

Akyen and Lopez Bring Home 2013 All-GSAC Honors

Submitted by: jwyatt - November 6th, 2013

By Jordan Wyatt:

On Tuesday, the Golden State Athletic Conference released the 2013 All-GSAC Men’s Soccer Team Presented by Under Armor, with two prominent senior Warriors receiving honors.

Midfielder Emmanuel “Nana” Akyen of Accra, Ghana appears on the list for the third time in his Westmont tenure (2010, ‘12). Joining Akyen is defender Marcos Lopez of Santa Barbara, who takes home the All-GSAC designation for the first time in his four year Westmont soccer career.

“It’s a well-deserved honor for both of them,” remarked Westmont’s beaming head coach Dave Wolf. “They play on opposite ends of the soccer spectrum, but Nana and Marcos are our foundations on either side of the field.”

Men’s Soccer Sweeps Weekly GSAC Awards

Submitted by: jwyatt - November 4th, 2013

By Jordan Wyatt:

Following up a superb week on the pitch for Westmont Men’s Soccer (10-6, 6-4 GSAC), in which the Warriors acquired victories in their final two regular season games at home against Hope International (1-0 final) and Vanguard (3-1 final), two squad members have been esteemed with Golden State Athletic Conference Player of the Week Honors.

The men who don maroon and white swept the men’s soccer category, with the GSAC crowning junior midfielder Jonathan Yeeles with Offensive Player of the Week honors. Additionally, the Defensive Player of the Week honor was bestowed upon redshirt freshman goalkeeper Josh Glover.

Yeeles, from Pacifica, recorded two goals and one assist last week, including the sole and game clinching score against Hope International. He also scored the game tying goal in the Warriors’ regular season finale Saturday against Vanguard, and later assisted Rick McCarthy on the go-ahead goal in the 75th minute.

Westmont Men Win Number 10

By Jordan Wyatt:

Three second half goals by junior Jonathan Yeeles and senior captains Rick McCarthy and Sean Siemens respectively propelled Westmont Men’s Soccer (10-6, 6-4 GSAC) into the double-digit victory club as the Warriors defeated Vanguard (8-7-1, 4-5-1) 3-1 on Senior Day in their final Golden State Athletic Conference match of the regular season.

Although Westmont outshot the Lions six to five in the first half, it was the Warriors who found themselves in an early hole 15 minutes into the game. Nevertheless, Westmont persevered through their static first half, ultimately rewriting their postseason passage in the final 23 minutes of the match.

In the 68th minute, Yeeles struck first for the Warriors. Off of a rebound 10 yards out, he corralled the ball and directed a quick volley toward goal that went screaming past the Lions’ goalkeeper.

An Unroyal Welcome

Submitted by: jwyatt - October 30th, 2013

By Jordan Wyatt:

Westmont Men’s Soccer (9-6, 5-4 GSAC) guaranteed themselves a promotion into postseason play after capping off a turbulent 1-0 shutout victory over Golden State Athletic Conference foe Hope International (3-13-1, 1-7-1 GSAC) at Thorrington Field Wednesday.

The predominate theme of the match was idle offense and fruitless up field ventures; however, the contest swiftly transformed, proving that the first 70 minutes only represented the calm before the storm.

Four minutes into the second half, the Royals went a man down after a red card was issued for a thrown elbow. Nevertheless, Westmont would not capitalize on their newly found advantage for another 23 minutes.

Heartbreak Hawks Take Overtime Again

Submitted by: jwyatt - October 26th, 2013

By Jordan Wyatt:

In an all too familiar twist of fate Saturday afternoon in El Cajon, Westmont Men’s Soccer (8-6, 4-4 GSAC) once again experienced an overtime defeat dealt by Golden State Athletic Conference foe #18 San Diego Christian (12-2-2, 5-1-2 GSAC), this time by a final of 1-0.

The Warriors failed to find their groove on offense, struggling mightily up front throughout the entire match. “We weren’t able to get a lot going offensively,” said Westmont head coach Dave Wolf. “San Diego Christian is a good team, so their defense had something to do with that for sure, but it wasn’t a game in which we had a lot of people unleashed in the offensive third.”

Throughout the first half, the Hawk’s stifling defense only allowed three shots. In the second, the Warriors regressed, tallying only one additional shot attempt in route to their lowest full game total on the season – four.
