Pasadena, Calif. (Oct. 1, 2016) – Freshman Kevin Yu (Park Ridge, N.J. / Park Ridge) scored his second career goal but Caltech men's soccer was unable to stop Occidental College's offense as the Tigers defeated the Beavers in a SCIAC matchup on Saturday morning.
Occidental netted twice in the opening five minutes and scored three more before Caltech answered on Yu's strike, courtesy of an assist by junior Chris Haack (New York, N.Y. / The Browning School). Yu registered the only two shots on goal for the Beavers, while senior J.D. Feist (Richardson, Texas / Jesuit Coll. Prep) stopped three shots in the first half and another in the second for a total of four saves. The Tigers went on to double their halftime score with another five goals in the second half for the 10-1 victory.
Head Coach Phil Murray and the Beavers begin the second round of SCIAC play at Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Colleges (7-3 overall, 5-3 SCIAC) on Monday, Oct. 3 at 7 p.m.
