BERKELEY - Andrew Wiedeman scored twice, Hector Jimenez collected two assists and former Bronco Jeff Cosgriff scored the game's first goal for California in the Golden Bears' 3-1 win over Santa Clara in the Bay Area Classic on Sunday at Edwards Stadium. Cal (2-0 in the Bay Area Classic, including a 3-0 win over San Francisco on Sept. 17) wound up as the Bay Area Classic champion after Stanford's 1-0 overtime victory over USF on Sunday night gave the Bears (plus 5) a better goal differential than the Cardinal (plus 3). Stanford was also 2-0 in the local derby. Overall, Cal has a 5-1-0 record after the non-conference victory. Santa Clara fell to 2-4-0.
Cosgriff, a senior forward who played the first three seasons of his college career at Santa Clara, scored against the Broncos in the seventh minute, heading in a free kick from Jimenez, a junior midfielder.
Santa Clara freshman midfielder Erik Hurtado tied the match at 1-1 in the 11th minute, dribbling through the defense and firing past diving Cal goalkeeper David Bingham.
The match was still 1-1 at halftime.
Jimenez also assisted on Cal's second goal, sending a nice cross into the Broncos' box that Wiedeman slotted past SCU goalkeeper Larry Jackson. Cal led, 2-1. Jimenez, Cal's second-leading scorer (9 points), now paces the Bears with seven assists on the season.
In the 77th minute, Wiedeman notched his second goal of the game, scoring off an assist from freshman midfielder Tony Salciccia. Wiedeman, Cal's leading scorer with 15 points, now has six goals to go with three assists this year.
Cal next plays in two games in the Stanford Nike Classic, taking on New Mexico at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 25, at the Cardinal's Laird Q. Cagan Stadium and then hosting Air Force at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 27, at Edwards Stadium.
