San Jose, Calif.----- The San Jose State University men's soccer team was defeated by Sacramento State, 2-0, in a non-conference men's soccer match at the Spartan Soccer Complex.
Webb Christian in the second minute and Jackson Trevor in the 46th minute scored the Hornet goals. Sacramento State (1-2-0) won for the first time this season. Trveor also assisted on Christian's goal when he put a cross towards the goal and Christian found the back of the net.
Alex Clewis made two saves in goal for the Spartans (1-2-0). James Del Curto recorded his first shutout of the season making three saves. San Jose State played the final 10 minutes of the match a man down.
"It was 2-0 very early in the match and our team is a bit young to make this type of comeback," said San Jose State University men's soccer head coach Simon Tobin. The Spartans have 16 newcomers on their 27-man squad.
