Men's Soccer First Half Lead Erased at Chapman

ORANGE, Calif. (Oct. 24, 2016) – An early goal by senior Schaeffer Reed (Miami, Fla. / Westminster Christian) gave Caltech men's soccer a 1-0 halftime lead, but host Chapman University rallied in the second half to record a 5-1 victory on Monday night.

Reed rose up to head in a free kick by sophomore Jack Banaszak (Bethesda, Md. / Bethesda Chevy-Chase) to stake the Beavers to the 1-0 lead in the 14th minute.  Senior J.D. Feist (Richardson, Texas / Jesuit Coll. Prep) immediately was called upon to make a pair of saves and went on to record a total of six in the shutout first half.  Chapman finally equalized in the 52nd minute, however, and netted another three goals in a five-minute span soon after to put the game out of reach.

Head Coach Phil Murray and the Beavers host Cal Lutheran University (8-8-1 overall, 7-7-1 SCIAC) in the season finale, which will also serve as an Orange Out and Senior Day, on Saturday, Oct. 29 at 1 p.m.
