COLUMBUS, Ohio. – The Cal State Fullerton men's soccer team fell short Sunday morning as back-to-back goals from Wright State sealed the deal to take down the Titans 2-1 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.
After a scoreless first half, Wright State struck first with goals right away in the second half from Peguy Ngatcha in the 48th minute and Jake Stovall in the 49th. Fullerton (0-2-0) netted their first goal of the season in the 75th minute off a penalty kick from sophomore Robert Coronado to bring the Titans within one.
Fullerton returns to Titan Stadium for their home opener on Friday, Sept. 4 at 7:30 p.m. against George Washington. Ticket information for Friday's game can be found here.
