The rivalry between Cal State LA and Cal State Dominguez Hills continued in a game that ended in a win for LA. 

The game got underway in Carson on Oct. 9 as the Golden Eagles won easily 6-0 adding to the team’s winning streak. The team’s record now sits at 8-0-0 overall.

The eagles emphasized teamwork and playing within their roles prior to kickoff.  

“Coming into the game, the idea was to contribute to the team anyway I could… scoring a goal and build up the plays as much I could,” said senior forward Robin Lindahl. 

The black and gold crew didn’t waste any time in the first half, scoring their first two goals early in the match. Lindahl scored six minutes into the game, and midfielder Tim Klefisch scored off a penalty kick  during the 14th minute of play. The first half ended with the Golden Eagles up 2-0 on the scoreboard.

The tension was in the air during the first half. Three Toros were booked. Two of the players received yellow cards and defender Spencer Myers was tossed out after receiving a red card. The pressure was on and the Golden Eagles noticed it.

“There was definitely tension on the field. We have some history with the team. Although, we have to view it like any other game,” said Lindahl. 

The Golden Eagles brushed off the tension in the second half, and scored another goal in minute 52. Midfielder David Elizaga found the back of the net off an assist from fellow midfielder Daniel Simonis. 

Freshman midfielder Carl Solli made a huge impact in the second half getting a hat trick. He scored a total of three goals in 22 minutes.

“There was a little more pressure than [in] other games today, but everyone really put pressure on themselves to play along. It’s a rival team, so it’s always nice to know we came out on top,” said Solli. 

Overall the Golden Eagles soared through the game adding another win to their undefeated season. 

“During the last few years, this [has been] one of our best seasons so far. We still have [a long way] to go this season and our expectations should be higher each game,” said Tim Klefisch. 

The men’s soccer team will play its ninth game this season against Sonoma State on Oct. 13 at home.
