Warriors finish season short four

For the remainder of the regular season, the Cal State Stanislaus men’s soccer team will be without four players after they violated a team policy that led to a six-game suspension.
The players’ suspension started last Friday, when the Warriors played Cal State San Bernardino in a 1-0 win.
Stanislaus continues on with hosting Humboldt State on Friday in the first of the team’s final two home games, with the second one on Sunday against Sonoma State. Warriors coach Dana Taylor said his team will aim to progress while shooting for a postseason spot.
He did not reveal any names because it’s an internal team issue, one that did not involve law enforcement.
“There’s a lot of positives this season,” he said. “We have doubled last year’s win total from four to eight ... We’re going to continue to hold our players accountable and we’re going to push our program forward.”
Some of the team’s highlights this season include having Victor Regalado set a single-season school-record in goals with 10 in a 2-1 defeat to Cal State San Bernardino, not to mention racking up eight overall wins compared to the four the Warriors had in 2008.
Entering Friday’s game at Warrior Stadium, Stanislaus owns a 5-6-1 mark in the California Collegiate Athletic Association and sits at the No. 3 position in the standings behind Sonoma State (9-2-1) and Chico State (4-4-4) in the North Division. If the Warriors advance to the postseason, Taylor said the four suspended players will be reinstated.
