Titans Ousted From Big West Tourney by Cal Poly
Nov. 5, 2004
Irvine, Calif. - Cal Poly's Kelsey Carroll slammed home a corner kick from teammate Stephanie Hedien in the 39th minute and the defense took it from there as the Mustangs defeated Cal State Fullerton, 1-0, on Friday night in the semifinals of the Big West Conference Tournament at Anteater Stadium in Irvine, Calif.
The Titans finished the season with an 11-8-1 overall record and a co-Big West Conference championship. Fullerton has advanced to the Big West Tournament three times and have been eliminated by Cal Poly in the first round each time.
Cal Poly improved to 10-2-6 overall and will meet UC Santa Barbara on Sunday at 1 p.m. for the tournament title and a trip to the NCAA Tournament. The championship match will be televised locally by KVMD.
Hedien's corner went to the far left post where it found the feet of Carroll, who slammed it to the side netting for the only tally of the match.
Both teams finished with 12 shots on the night while the Titans were led by junior Kandace Wilson, who had three shots on the night.
Cal Poly keeper Liz Hill had four saves in the shutout while Fullerton keeper Karen Bardsley also finished with four saves.
