The Cal State Northridge men’s soccer team was able to hold host California scoreless for a half but not for an entire match.
Charlie Engs scored midway through the second half and teammate Micah Parzen added a goal late in the game as the Golden Bears held off Northridge, 2-0, Wednesday at Berkeley’s Memorial Stadium.
“We were all over them in the first half, but we blew too many opportunities,” Northridge Coach Marwan Ass’ad said. “We didn’t get as many shots on goal as we should have.”
Goalkeeper Joel Entreken had nine saves for Northridge (10-6-1), which had only nine shots on goal. Cal improved to 5-7-3.
