SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The Santa Clara men's soccer team brought the 2008 season to a close Sunday afternoon with a 1-1 draw with San Diego. Sophomore Sean Danzeiser scored the Broncos' lone goal.
The Broncos improved to 4-9-7 overall and 2-5-5 in the West Coast Conference, while the Toreros improved to 6-10-4 on the season and 6-5-1 in league play.
The Broncos defense did a solid job of holding off the Toreros in the first half. Then in the 38th minute, Santa Clara took a 1-0 lead on Danzeiser's goal. Freshman Eric Masch dribbled up the near side through several USD players. He centered the ball just before the out of bounds line to Danzeiser, whose shot went above keeper Kelin Briones to the upper right corner.
Santa Clara held onto the lead going into half time.
Forty-two minutes after Danzeiser's goal, Kyle Ochoa evened the score. At 79:28, Corey Norris sent a long pass to Ochoa, who collected the ball and fired a shot from about 18 yards out. The ball passed Bronco keeper Kevin Klasila for the tie.
Santa Clara out-shot San Diego 13-7 and had a 7-2 margin in corner kicks. Klasila made two saves to make his season tally 36 with a 2-6-4 record and a 1.28 GAA.
