No. 4 SDSU Upset in Soccer by Los Angeles

The fourth-ranked San Diego State men’s soccer team (10-2-1) was upset by unranked Cal State Los Angeles, 1-0, in a nonleague game Wednesday night at Aztec Bowl.

Los Angeles (6-8) got its winning score on a 25-yard free kick from Waldir Guerra with 2 1/2 minutes left. The loss was the first at home this season for the Aztecs after 7 consecutive victories.

The Major Indoor Soccer League, hoping to reverse the trend of fewer goals scored per game, voted to widen its neutral zone to 100 feet, an increase of 40 feet.

The change will place the red lines, comparable to ice hockey’s blue lines, 50 feet from the center line, extending the length 20 feet into each teams’ defensive zone.



Terrence Hamilton, a 6-foot 6-inch forward on the Patrick Henry High basketball team, will attend San Diego State next year, said his coach, Fritz Ziegenfuss. Hamilton, 17, will join Torrey Pines’ Courtie Miller, who also announced this week that he will attend SDSU.

Hamilton, who averaged 15 points and 12 rebounds a game last year, is known for his quickness, strong inside game and jumping ability.

SDSU Coach Jim Brandenburg’s son, Bart, is a junior at Patrick Henry and a friend and teammate of Hamilton’s.


The 11th-ranked San Diego State women’s team (17-3, 7-1) defeated unranked UC Irvine, 15-13, 3-15, 15-13, 15-7, in a Big West League match at Peterson Gym. UC Irvine is 9-7 and 2-6.

Kim Washington (17 kills) and Amy Erben (16) led the Aztecs to their ninth consecutive victory. Erin Tomblin had 53 assists, and Carolyn Kaspar had 12 digs.
