Men’s soccer ends home season with a tie against Wiley
Despite outshooting Wiley College 23-4, the men’s soccer team tied the Wildcats 1-1 on Saturday afternoon. Earlier this week, the Saints made their debut in the NAIA Men’s Soccer Coaches’ Top 25 Poll at No. 20. Prior to the beginning of the game, the Saints honored seniors Luis Flores, Yared Temesgen, Martin Hansson, Osiris Estrada and Salim Sandoval. Each received a bouquet of flowers from Head Coach Shane Hurley and Assistant Coach Arthur Salazar, and another set of flowers from OLLU’s Office of Family Relations. In addition, the men received a photo montage depicting each year they played on the soccer team. Flores played all four years for the Saints. Temesgen joined the team in 2009 but had to sit out a year due to injury, so he was actually a member of the Saints for five years. Sandoval also joined the team in 2009, but last year, he was injured. He was hoping to play this season, but his injury was too severe. And, both Estrada and Hansson joined the team last season.
