Titans Rout Mavericks; Snap Losing Skid
OMAHA, Neb.--- Cal State Fullerton dominated the pitch for 90 minutes on Saturday, as the Titans blanked Nebraska-Omaha 3-0 at UNO Soccer Field, snapping what was a four-game losing skid.
For the Titans (2-5), the win snaps what was a five-game road losing streak going back to last season and is their first shutout road win since Sept. 16, 2011 at American (W, 3-0).
"The team finally played the way I felt it could have played all along today," said head coach Bob Ammann. "We've led in five of the seven games we have played this year, so it was nice to actually hold on and finish this one off."
"I'm confident that we'll see more performances like the one we saw today from this group."
Fullerton took control of the game early, as Garrett Losee recorded his first career goal in the third minute off of the free kick to give the Titans the 1-0 advantage.
The final result was never in doubt the rest of the way, as Fullerton's dominance continued in the second 45 minute session, as the Titans outshot the Mavericks 13-12 for the game, while holding a 9-3 shot on goal advantage and winning the corner kick battle 7-1.
Fullerton added one more in the 76th minute, as Jaime Cano netted his first score of the season off a penalty kick to bring the final tally to 3-0.
Fullerton hopes to start a win streak when it returns home to Titan Stadium to take on Grand Canyon next Saturday at 7:00 p.m. PT
Game Notes: Today's 3-0 win was Fullerton's largest margin of victory since also securing a 3-0 win on Sept. 16, 2011 at American.
