Men’s soccer team 5-6-0

By Amanda Newfield

The Broncos were up against two strong opponents last weekend
and came out with a victory over Cal State Dominguez Hills, but
could not execute the same during Sunday’s game against the No. 2
team in the nation, Cal State L.A.

“They are a well coached side, a very talented team,” said men’s
soccer Head Coach Lance Thompson. “The better team won
[Sunday].”

The Broncos are now 5-6-0 so far this season.

The game Sunday was tied 1-1 until the end of the second half
when the Golden Eagles scored making it 1-2 with 11:51 left on the
clock.

“They took advantage of their chances in the second half, and
they had a little too much fire power for us,” he said.

Thompson believed the Broncos played well against Cal State L.A.
(11-0-1), who now leads the CCAA South Division.

“We played our hearts out and definitely gave it our best
effort,” said Thompson. “But [Sunday] Cal State L.A. was better
than us.”

Aside from the loss Sunday, Friday’s game was fought well by the
Broncos, and their hard work paid off with a 4-2 victory over CSU
Dominguez Hills.

“Friday, was a big win for us,” said Thompson. “Tyler Reinhart
had an exceptional weekend for us.”

Forward, Tyler Reinhart, scored a school record, with 4 goals
against the Toros Friday. Reinhart scored all 5 goals for both
games last weekend.

“That was a game where we really did a good job of finishing our
chances,” said Thompson. “We were really hungry for that game. It
was a game against our rivals.”

Midfielder, Marc Glogowsky, felt the team played well on
Sunday.

“It was a really close game, everyone put out a lot of effort,”
he said. “We just didn’t get the result.”

The Men’s soccer team realizes their potential after defeating
rival team, Cal State Dominguez Hills.

“We showed Friday that we can hang with the best teams in the
conference,” said Glogowsky. “[Sunday’s game] was just a minor set
back.”

Defender, Chris Trejo, felt his team played well, despite being
faced with one of the top teams in the nation.

“I felt we got a little frustrated towards the end of the game,
we didn’t keep our composure, and they took advantage of that,” he
said.

Trejo believed the Broncos could have taken more of the
opportunities that presented themselves at the game Sunday, but the
team still has a chance to show what they are capable of this
season.

“We could have won, we definitely should have won,” said Trejo.
“But we’re still in it, we’re not out of the playoffs.”
