LOS ANGELES - Juan De Rada scored twice in the second half while Mark Dotseth and Adrien Perez each added a goal as the LMU men's soccer team earned a commanding 4-0 shutout of visiting Sacramento State Friday at Sullivan Field.
The Lions move to 4-1-0 on the season while the Hornets fall to 1-2-3.
LMU was dominant from the opening kick off, quickly jumping on the board at the 4:46 mark with Dotseth's first goal of the season. A long free kick shot by John McFarlin was saved by Hornet goalkeeper Cesar Castillo, but the ball stayed in play and Dotseth rushed it, pushing it over the goal line with his chest.
De Rada made it 2-0 LMU with his first goal of the season in the 59th minute. Taking a pass from Luc Brubaker, the junior blasted a shot from the top of the box out of the reach of Castillo.
LMU's final two goals came with Sacramento State playing a man down after Isaac Ikyurav was issued a straight red card for a violent tackle on LMU's Sean Sears in the 60th minute.
McFarlin was again the setup man for the Lions third goal as he began the play with a long cross from the right flank to the far post. Jack McCracken headed the ball back in front of the goal mouth where Perez was able to head it home for his second goal of the season.
De Rada rounded out the scoring with his second goal of the night, scoring again on an assist from McFarlin. McFarlin's three-assist game ties the LMU program record for assists in a game.
The Lions return to Sullivan Field Sunday at 1 p.m. to host UC Davis.
