Michigan Ends Titans' Perfect Season

Michigan Ends Titans' Perfect Season

Sept. 9, 2007

Box Score

Fullerton, Calif. - Mauro Fuzetti and Jake Stacy capitalized on Cal State Fullerton defensive lapses for a pair of first-half goals and Michigan added two more scores with a man advantage in the second half to cruise to a 4-0 victory over the Titans for the championship of the Titan men's soccer tournament.

The Wolverines are 4-0 on the season while the Titans' string of three successive shutouts was wiped out to leave their record at 3-1.

Fuzetti put the Wolverines ahead when prone Titan goalkeeper Brent Douglas let a shot from Fuzetti from about 15 yards out roll under his midsection into the net in the 14th minute. A few minutes later, Douglas suffered a head injury and had to leave the game. Stacy scored later in the half when a Titan defender attempted to clear a rebound and sent the ball directly to Stacy at the corner of the box from where he beat Kevin Puder.

Fullerton's Michael Farfan received a red card five minutes into the second half and the short-handed Titans, who matched Michigan's 8 first-half shots, didn't get another one until the closing minutes. Matt Schmitt and Daniel Gray came off the Wolverines' bench to score late goals.

Comprising the all-tournament team were: Michigan's Jake Stacy, Michael Holody, Peri Marosevic and Alex Morisset; Fullerton's Brent Douglas, Amir Shafii and Andres Jarquin; Northridge's Sunghyum Kim and Rafael Garcia; and Memphis' Rick Aleman and Kevin Walsh.

The Titans play next weekend at the UCLA Tournament, facing two more Big Ten opponents in Penn State and Ohio State.
