Northridge, Calif. - Michael Denny scored off a feed from Shay Spitz in the 75th minute to break a 1-1 tie and lift Cal State Fullerton to a 2-1 men's soccer victory Friday afternoon over Wisconsin-Milwaukee in a tournament opener at Cal State Northridge.
Denny's goal improved the Titans' record to 2-1 going into a Sunday morning (11 a.m.) match against Fairleigh-Dickinson. UW-Milwaukee fell to 1-3.
The Titans outshot their opponent, 22-11, and had a pair of shots clang off the cross bar and a post in the second half. Trevor Whiddon made 5 saves to get the win in the net for Fullerton.
Nick Posthuma gave the Titans a 1-0 lead in the 34th minute, converting a cross from Johnathan Birt. But Wisconsin-Milwaukee tied the match less than four minutes later as Cody Banks scored on a give-and-go from Greg Rosenthal.
