Cal Poly Knocks Off Stanford to Remain Undefeated in League Play

Senior midfielder Tim Albo defends against the Cardinal


April 19, 2014 (Palo Alto) - Cal Poly overcame a slow start on the road to defeat Stanford 10 - 6 on Saturday and remain undefeated in WCLL league play. The victory, along with a Cal upset over Sonoma, guaranteed the Mustangs the #1 seed heading into the WCLL Final Four on the first weekend of May and a likely rematch against the Cardinal. 

Stanford jumped out to a 2 - 1 lead at the end of the first quarter behind the outside shooting of sophomore midfielder Peter Doyle, who was limited to just the two early goals for the game. 

Cal Poly climbed back and took control of the game in the 2nd quarter. Senior attackman Dylan Gonsalves connected on his first two shots of the day and also found fellow attackman Joseph Sarjeant open in the middle of the field for another goal. Sarjeant dished out two assists of his own, as the Mustangs shook off the slow start to take a 5-2 lead at the half. 

Cal Poly continued their control of the game after the break, stretching their lead to 8-3 at the end of three and coasting to their fifth straight league victory. Four veterans carried the Mustangs offensively as Gonsalves (2g, 2a) and Sarjeant (4g, 2a) were joined by senior midfielders Matt Dobbs (1g, 1a) and Zack Jones (3g, 1a) to account for all ten Mustang goals on the day and six of their eight assists. 

Cal Poly will finish up the regular season next Saturday at home against the Santa Clara Broncos, and will look to send their graduating players out with another league victory on Senior Day.

March 4, 2014 - Cal Poly earned their first WCLL league victory of the 2014 season with a 10 – 4 victory over the #16 Cal Bears on Sunday.  

Cal opened the scoring with two unassisted goals - one from attackman Sean Hayden and the second from midfielder Tom Riis – to take a 2-0 lead midway through the first quarter. Mustang attackman Jake Sesti hit two shots in the final minute of the period to tie the game at two apiece. The Cal Poly defense would control the game from that point forward, shutting down the Bears offense in the second quarter and allowing only two more goals in the game.

With the victory, Cal Poly improves their record to 4-1 on the season and held steady in this week’s MCLA Coaches Poll at #13. With the loss, Cal dropped two spots to the #18 ranking.

The game felt a bit like a Mavericks reunion game, with many of the key players hailing from La Costa Canyon High School in Encinitas, one of California’s most powerful high school lacrosse programs. For the Bears, all of their goals came from Mavericks’ alums Hayden (1g,1a) and Riis (3g). For Cal Poly, former Maverick, freshman Jake Sesti had an impressive five point performance (3g, 2a) and earned the game ball. On the defensive end, junior close defenseman Luke Willon covered Hayden all game, limiting him to a single goal, while freshman LSM Cole Tudor chipped in with 3 ground balls and a goal that got wiped off the board due to an untimely timeout call.

The Mustangs host a home double-header this weekend against Southern Methodist and Virginia Tech. Both games will mark only the second meeting between the teams in program history, with Cal Poly owning the 1-0 series advantage over both squads.
