The Dominguez Hills men’s soccer season came to an end in the second round of the playoffs on Nov. 11. California Baptist University crushed the Toros 5-0.
The Toros ended their season with an overall record of 13-5-3 and 9-2-1 in conference.
In the playoff match, Dominguez struggled to maintain possession throughout the game and get off a shot in the first half. The squad found itself having to play catchup for what felt like the entire game.
When the first half ended, Cal Baptist had taken 18 shots and had already had two goals in the 28th and 37th minute.
The second half was just as bad for the Toros. They took three shots to CBU’s 11. Even with those three shots, Dominguez Hills was unable to put any points on the board.
Cal Baptist found the net three more times in the second half, with goals coming in the 49th, 86th and 87th minutes.
The loss ended the season for the Toros, but it was a good run. The team looks to improve next year.
Head Coach Joe Flanagan will have eight returning starters next year, including three of the top goal scorers: Leonardo Nogueira, Adam Vargas and Carlos Escobedo.
