Torres Scores Twice, Including One Game-Winner
UC Davis senior Lizandro Torres (Stockton, Calif./Lincoln HS) scored twice on just three shots off the bench to claim Big West Men’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week accolades.
Torres provided the game-winning goal as UC Davis outlasted Loyola Marymount, 3-2, in a contest that gave head coach Dwayne Shaffer his 200th Division I victory.
The goal, the third straight as part of a first-half Aggie onslaught, came at the 28:16 mark as Torres drove down the left side and fired back across the goal mouth, and inside the right post for his first goal of the season and a 3-0 lead. That goal proved to be important as the Lions fought back with two goals in the second stanza.
Torres gave the Aggies a 1-0 lead in Sunday’s match with San Diego as he headed home a cross from teammate Adam Mickelson in the 65th minute. His quest for a second straight game-winning goal was thwarted as the Toreros struck twice late in the game.
He is one of eight UC Davis players to score a goal this season. He is tied for second on the team in goals and tied for third in points.
Others nominated: Nick Carroll (Cal Poly); Emmanuel Usen, Jr. (CSUN); Mac Harrington (Sacramento State); Ivan Canales (UC Irvine)
CSUN goalkeeper Henrik Regitnig (Invermere, British Columbia/UMKC) secured his second straight Big West Men’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week honor on the strength of his first career shutout against No. 9 Denver.
One week after earning the award thanks to a five-save performance against No. 14 Utah Valley, Regitnig provided another stalwart performance in net against the Pioneers.
Regitnig stopped a season-high six Denver shots as the Matadors won by a 2-0 score for their second top-25 win in as many weeks. The game was played in Albuquerque as part of the New Mexico-hosted Grange and Ashwill Invitational. CSUN was outshot 19-10 against the Pioneers, but Regitnig was up to the challenge.
He also made two saves in a 2-1 defeat to the host Lobos. Regitnig earned a selection on the all-tournament team.
Others nominated: Simon Boehme (Cal Poly)
