SAN DIEGO ( Daily Aztec ) - San Diego State men’s soccer fell short during a 2-1 loss against the University of Washington on Sunday afternoon at the SDSU Sports Deck.
The loss ended the Aztecs five-game home winning streak.
Senior forward Damian German said the result was just a matter of bad luck.
“I just think this game we were a little unlucky,” he said. “I don’t think we were the bad team. I think we fought well and are the better team, things just didn’t go our way.”
The game was scoreless in the first half, but things picked up in the second after Washington’s Blake Bodily scored an off-the-post goal.
The Aztecs (5-5-1, 1-3) responded quickly, and were able to get on the scoreboard less than 10 minutes later. German worked his way to the goal and found junior midfielder Pablo Pelaez, who capitalized and tied up the game.
German said it felt nice to contribute to a goal.
“It’s exciting,” he said. “You put in the hard work, you do things in practice and for it to come out in the field is the biggest accomplishment.”
