California State University, Stanislaus' men's soccer team entered their match against Sonoma State with fresh legs on Sunday, a benefit afforded to them by Humboldt State's disciplinary season cancellation that gave the Warriors Friday off. As it turned out the rest wasn't much of an advantage, as the two CCAA teams battled it out at Rohnert Park and were forced to settle for a tie, 1-1.
The Seawolves (5-2-1 overall, 4-1-1 CCAA) jumped onto the score board early, scoring at 6:47 by way of an Evan Filipczyk free kick. It took nearly a half hour for the Warriors (4-1-2 overall, 2-1-2 CCAA) to respond but respond they did. Nolan Holdridge found the net with a header in the 38th minute from a Luis Guzman cross to tie the game; it was Holdridge's second goal of the year.
The rest of the match was relatively even with both teams taking five second half shots. Clint Long once again proved to be integral to the Warrior's effort with a total of five saves.
Stanislaus will travel to Chico State on Friday in another one-match weekend.
