Santa Clarita, CA - The Golden Eagles men's soccer team traveled to The Master's College this afternoon, for a non-conference match-up with the Mustangs. La Sierra entered the match with an even record of 4-4, while the Mustangs were looking to push their record to an even 4-4. The two teams played a relatively even match for the first 70 minutes, at which point the Mustangs broke it open by scoring three goals in the final 20 minutes, on their way to a 4-0 victory over the Golden Eagles.
The Mustangs took a 1-0 lead into the half, on a goal by Austin Michelson, assisted by Ryan Dolan, in the 31st minute.

The first goal, of the three, was an unassisted goal by Taylor Shahi, followed five minutes later by Peter Martin who found the back of the net, assisted by Austin Rochow and Michelson.
