After a scoreless first half, LMU tallied two second-half goals to defeat UCR, 2-1, at Sullivan Field on Sunday afternoon. The Lions improved to 2-1-1 at home on the season.
“It was nice to get a win,” LMU Head Coach Paul Krumpe said. “I think we did a decent job defensively. It was nice to defend on Sullivan Field and get a result. I liken this to a cruise ship, we’ve been going in the wrong direction, and it takes a while to get it turned and going in the right direction. It’s just a matter of kicking it in gear and getting it going, and we can start moving the right way.”
At the 86:48 mark, UCR made it 2-1 as Daniel Aguirre found Antonio Lokossou 17-yards from the goal. Lokossou dribbled through the entire LMU defense and put his close shot past Lions goalie Paul Lewis.
UCR outshot LMU 18-14 and the Lions had seven corner kicks to the Highlanders’ two. Lewis had four saves in goal for LMU, while Morales registered one save for UCR.
The Lions’ next matchup comes against New Mexico on Oct. 4 at 7:00 p.m. at Sullivan Field.
