The Pac-12 spring soccer season is here, and both of Cal’s teams were in action over the weekend. Unfortunately, they posted a collective 1W-2L-0D record.
First, the good news. The women’s team wrapped up a two-game weekend with a 1-0 win over Utah Sunday, Keely Roy scoring the winning goal off Emma Westin’s assist.
Angelina Anderson had five saves in goal for the Bears.
The win on Sunday was balanced out by Friday’s 2-1 loss against Colorado. Sydney Collins had a consolation goal for Cal after the Buffaloes took a 2-0 lead.
The weekend’s results give Cal women a 3-1-0 record to start the season, 2-1-0 in conference, so that loss against Colorado was their first of the young season. At present, they sit just behind UCLA in the Pac-12 standings. Next weekend they’ll do a Washington swing, visiting Washington State Friday and then University of Washington on Sunday.
Meanwhile, on the men’s side they had one game this past weekend, and it was a bruising 4-0 loss to Oregon State Saturday. It was one-way traffic on the day, with OSU taking the lead in the opening minutes and pouring it on from there, the Bears hitting the woodwork late but not having an answer.
It’s been a rough start for Cal men, as they’re off to an 0-3-0 start, Oregon State and Stanford currently the cream of the Pac-12 crop early on. They’ll head down to San Diego to take on San Diego State next, on Saturday.
