PASADENA, Calif. - Caltech let in an early goal and was not able to capitalize on several great chances, falling to new conference foe Chapman.
Chapman opened the scoring in 13th minute when Boston Kimmel took a shot from inside the box, Kimmel's shot was knocked down by goalkeeper Wesley Swank, but unfortunately for Caltech the rebound fell to Panther forward Nick Velazquez who just tapped it into the net.
In the 40th minute Paolo Bertolotti showed tremendous hustle in working down the right flank, he won the ball and cut a cross back to the middle. Hunter Sceats was waiting for the cross at the top of the box, but his shot went wide left of the Chapman goal.
In the 51st minute Kunmi Jeje came into the box from the left side, and had a defender one-on-one. He faked to his left and cut the ball across his body, he then fired a low shot to the near post, but Chapman's goalkeeper Nick Berardi was able to get down and make the save.
Velazquez was again involved in the scoring in the 64th minute when he sent a cross from the left flank into the box, Duncan Capriotti received the ball in the box, turned and fired it into the net to provide Chapman with an insurance goal.
This was the first game for Caltech against Chapman as a conference opponent. Chapman officially joined the Sothern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference this summer.
Caltech tied a season high by recording nine shots. Four shots were on target which is a new high this season for the Beavers.
