Biola Cruises to Second Win of the Season
Feb. 15, 2014 – The Biola University Eagles traveled to play the CSU Long Beach 49ers, earning their second win of the season. A shorthanded 49ers team played without substitutions all game, and despite their best efforts, found themselves down early. The Eagles jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter, which would be all they would need to seal the victory.
Long Beach got on the board in the second with one goal, but Biola scored another eight goals of their own to extend the halftime lead to 18-1. A possession-minded Eagles squad slowed the pace in the second half, scoring nine and allowing one, for a 27-2 final score.
Nine Eagles got in on the scoring, with Eric Gamelson (So., Attack) and David Shaum (So., Attack) both tallying five goals in the game. Gamelson added three assists and Shaum added four assists to their point totals. Josh Nordstrom (Jr., Midfield), Bryce Hummel (Fr., Midfield), and Jon Prichard (Fr., Attack) all added four goals to Biola’s total. Nordstrom chipped in with five assists, and Hummel added one assist.
Brian Lee (So., Midfield) tallied two goals and one assist, Matt Casto (Fr., Midfield) scored one goal and two assists, and Isaac Delgado (So., Midfield) added one goal to the total.
