Men’s soccer faced defeat against California State University, San Bernardino, gaining their first loss of the season, 2-1. The Coyotes came out howling, making it evident they were here to dominate. In the first 15 minutes CSUSB had four shots on goal, while the Eagles only had one.

The Coyotes attempted two shots to the bottom center early on, which senior goalkeeper Luis Rodriguez saved. Unfortunately, at the 18-minute mark the Coyotes made the only goal of the first half.


The Coyotes went into the second half with a 1-0 advantage, which motivated the Eagles’ offense to step it up. Biola recorded two shots on goal in the first four minutes, leading redshirt senior forward Malik Shaheed to tie the game, 1-1. However, San Bernardino soon responded by regaining control of the ball and attempted six shots, ultimately making their second goal and winning the game, 2-1.

Men’s soccer (3-1) will return home to face California State University, Los Angeles on Saturday, Sept. 18 at 7 p.m. Footage and stats from today’s game is located on Biola Athletics’ Website.
