CORVALLIS - Tyson Wahl, Calen Carr and Andrew Jacobson lifted the California men's soccer team to a 4-0 victory over Oregon State this afternoon at Lorenz field. The Golden Bears improve to 11-3-1 overall, 4-3 in Pac-10 play, while Oregon State drops to 8-5-4, 4-3 in the conference.
"Although it was a great weekend for the team, we need to quickly adjust our focus to our next game which is San Diego State," said head coach Kevin Grimes. "All the seniors had a great weekend and I am very proud of them."
Sophomore midfielder Andrew Jacobson gave the Bears a quick 1-0 lead when he scored in the 10th minute and put Cal on the board. Jacobson took a direct free kick from 28 yards back and found the open net past the Beavers keeper, Packy Deenihan. Jacobson scored what turned out to be the game-winning goal and recorded his third goal of the season.
A little over 10 minutes later, Jacobson served the ball to senior Tyson Wahl who scored his fourth goal of 2005 and put the Bears ahead, 2-0, in just 20 minutes of play. Wahl scored off a corner kick.
With the clock nearing halftime, senior forward Calen Carr gave the Bears a comfortable 3-0 heading into the break when he scored in the 41st minute. Senior forward Pieter Berger crossed the ball from the left side to Carr, who headed the ball into the net and recorded his ninth goal of the season.
Although the Beavers took 12 shots, they could not find the open net past Cal's keepers Eric Kronberg and Mike Oseguera. Tyson Wahl ensured the win for the Bears when he scored his second goal of the afternoon in the 84th minute. Wahl blasted a direct free kick from 35 yards back and scored on Oregon State's Jason Mariner, while recording his fifth goal of the season.
The Bears return home and have a weekend off and then host San Diego State, Friday, Nov. 4 at 2 p.m. and UCLA on Sunday, Nov. 6 at 2 p.m., as the end of the season nears.
