FOREST GROVE, Ore.- The Pacific men's soccer team scored a goal in each half in a 2-0 victory over Oregon Tech at Lincoln Park Stadium. Oregon Tech falls to 0-3-1 with the loss with the Boxers improving to 2-3-0 picking up the win.
The Boxers dominated the offensive side of the ball, outshooting the Hustlin' Owls 27-4. Although the Boxers had 27 shots, they were only able to find the back of the net twice thanks to Oregon Tech's goalkeeper Loren Jessen's 12 saves.
Quintin Love scored the first goal of the match in the 20th minute taking a rebound and scored past Jessen. Mark Watson fired first, but was shut down by Jessen. The ball rebounded back to Watson, who redirected it to Love in the penalty area to find the back of the net.
The Boxers would take advantage of another offensive opportunity off a corner kick by Mason Nakama in the 81st minute. Nakama found Lucas Sconyers in the middle of the box and Sconyers fired off a Tech defender that just got past Jessen to cap the scoring.
Michael Summers collected his first win of the season between the posts, recording two saves in 90 minutes. Nick Rudella led the Boxers with six shots.
Jessen was a tough luck looser as he had an outstanding game facing 27 shot, 14 on goal as he was credited with 12 saves.
The Hustlin’ Owls will open up conference play next weekend playing at Northwest University in Kirkland, Washington on Friday, September 14th and at Evergreen State on Saturday, September 15th.
