Biola men’s soccer played an exhilarating second game of the season against CSU Dominguez Hills, earning a well-deserved win, 2-0. The Eagles opened the match by dominating game play and keeping possession, which continued into the second half.

RED CARDS AND RIVETING PLAYS

The Eagles and the Toros were both eager to set off the match, as both teams attempted shots on goal in the first 10 minutes of the game. Redshirt junior midfielder Oscar Rubalcava scored the first goal of the match 20 minutes in on an assist by redshirt senior midfielder Pontus Gitselov. 

The second half of the match heated up with a save by redshirt sophomore goalkeeper JD Gunn. Following the save were multiple yellow cards on Biola and an extreme foul for Dominguez Hills, resulting in a red card which gave the Eagles an opportunity to shoot a free kick. Redshirt senior midfielder Theo Le Calve scored off of the free kick that ultimately led Biola to win it all, 2-0.
