Men's Soccer Ties San Jose State 2-2 in Final Exhibition

SAN JOSE, Calif. – In the final tune-up before the regular season, Santa Clara men's soccer battled to a 2-2 draw at San Jose State on Sunday afternoon.

The Broncos got goals from Satoshi Chaffin and Valdemar Andersen in the first half for the offensive output. The Spartans scored once in the first half as well and Santa Clara had a 2-1 lead at the break.

Despite creating several chances, the Broncos couldn't add to the lead and the Spartans were able to score the tying goal late in the match.

"We learned what we needed about our team over these two exhibition matches. We would have liked to have had positive results to build our confidence but our performances overall were good for this time of year. Today, we created a number of chances, which is encouraging. We're looking forward to a really tough match on Friday against a really good Maryland team."

Head coach Cameron Rast

Santa Clara opens the regular season Friday as the Broncos host No. 6 Maryland at 7:30 p.m.
