SAN FRANCISCO – The Cal Poly men's soccer program limited San Francisco to just two shots on goal in 110 minutes, but the Mustangs finished in their first scoreless draw in 23 matches on Monday evening versus the Dons at Negesco Stadium.
Sophomore goalkeeper Carlos Arce-Hurtado chalked up both saves to produce his second career shutout for Cal Poly (4-3-1), which itself was kept to just one shot on target during Monday's opening 77 minutes. Cal Poly though produced four more shots on frame to close regulation before junior forward Angel De Leon (above) was turned away by San Francisco goalkeeper Alejandro Munoz in the 98th minute.
The Mustangs, however, were unable to convert the decisive opportunity during just the fourth Division I meeting between the two squads.
Junior midfielder Emmanuel Perez, who ranks first among NCAA Division I players with four game-winning goals and 11th with seven total goals, saw his five-match, goal-scoring streak come to a close. Perez enjoyed three shot attempts versus San Francisco.
Unbeaten in five of its previous six matches, Cal Poly completes Big West Conference preparations with a Saturday, Oct. 5 matchup at UC Santa Barbara. The opening leg of the 2019 Blue-Green rivalry series kicks off at 7 p.m. from Harder Stadium.
