FULLERTON, Calif. - Cal State Fullerton women's soccer dropped the first match of the 2019 season by a score of 4-1 against the Arizona State Sun Devils. All five goals were scored in the second frame, including two from the Sun Devils off set pieces. Junior Haley Brown scored the first goal of the season for the Titans. The squad is back in action on Sunday against Minnesota at 5 p.m. PT in Titan Stadium.
The game was scoreless at the half but the Titans just missed on three great chances, two of which were strong saves from ASU goalkeeper Giulia Cascapera and the other was a shot just wide from junior Callie Petrey-Juarez. The Sun Devils had just one shot in the first frame that was not on target.
But the game really opened up in the second 45 minutes as Sargeant Lorato scored at the 47:33 mark, collecting a loose ball off a set piece and hitting right between the legs of redshirt fresman goalkeeper Noa Schumacher.
The Titans answered back at the 48:45 mark courtesy of a Brown header. Sophomore Kaya Hawkinson took the corner kick, senior Atlanta Primus deflected towards Brown who headed just across the line before the ASU defender could clear it.
ASU then scored in the 53rd, 61st and 80th minutes to secure the victory.
The Titans were down to 10 players for roughly the last 20 minutes as Sam Blanchard was given a straight red card. Just before the red, junior Maddie Bennett made a run, rounded the goalkeeper and fired a shot that was just a hair too high and drilled the crossbar.
