Men’s soccer went head-to-head against Chico State, adding on another win to their now 7-0-0 record this season. Both teams entered the match without a loss, and the birds knew it was going to be challenging to beat the cats.  

“We have faced them before in these past few years and we knew they are a tough team to beat. They play really good defense, but we knew if we played our way we could defeat them today, and that’s exactly what we did,” said midfielder David Elizaga. 

The Golden Eagles embraced the challenge of playing another unbeaten team, scoring 10 minutes into the match on a shot by David Elizaga. That would be the lone goal of the day, giving Cal State LA a 1-0 victory.

“We were very committed to the game. We came out and we got the results. We fought hard as a team and that was it,” said defender Antonio Rosas. 

Although the Golden Eagles viewed this game as a way to get better, they made it clear that their teamwork and effort was successful even though it was put to the test. 

“There is always room for improvement. I think we could have pushed a little harder for a second goal. We shouldn’t have held back, that second goal would have given us more comfort,” said Rosas. 

Even though some players recognize there are some things they can clean up, they are pleased with the wins.  

“After all of the struggles we might have had, I am satisfied with the results in the end. It makes our record this season [feel earned],” said midfielder Morten Bjoershol. 

The Golden Eagles will continue their season on Oct. 9 in Carson against Cal State Dominguez Hills.
