The San Jose State University men’s soccer team lost to USF in a 2-0 shutout in a foggy non-conference action Sunday night at Negoesco Stadium. San Francisco played the majority of the contest with a one-man advantage due to a Spartan red card issued in the ninth minute of the match.

Junior midfielder Gabe Sturm scored the game-winner for USF (3-2-0) in the Bay Area showdown against the Spartans (2-3-0). USF capitalized late in the first half when Sturm blasted a long shot off a deflection from 30 yards out on the right wing into the upper right corner.

USF held a 10-3 advantage in shots, although San Jose State had seven corner kicks, but the Dons' defense neutralized several Spartan chances. USF sophomore keeper Mark Muleady (2-2) collected the shutout for Dons and made one save on the night. Sophomore Eddie Dominguez (0-2) recorded his second loss of the season allowing two goals and making two saves.

San Jose State plays the next three games on the road before returning home to host Loyola Marymount on September 29. The Spartans face another Bay Area rival this Thursday against the Santa Clara Broncos at Buck Shaw Stadium. Gametime is set for 7:00 p.m.
