Stanislaus men end season in loss

November 3, 2013 

TURLOCK — The visiting Cal State East Bay men spoiled senior day for the CSU Stanislaus men's soccer team.

Derrek Duke Driggs' goal in overtime Sunday led the Pioneers to a 2-1 victory over the Warriors.

CSU Stanislaus finished the 2013 campaign 8-9-1 overall and 7-9-0 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association, despite a strong second half, including four wins in the last six matches. For the first time in five years, the Warriors failed to finish with a winning record.

Cal State East Bay scored first at 52:41 on a goal by Javier Martin, but the Warriors got even.

Jose Ramirez tied the match in the 76th minutes with Danny Ochoa getting the assist. Ramirez, who also scored on Friday against Humboldt State, finished with a team-best six goals.

However, the game remained tied until the extra period. At 96:53, Driggs found a loose ball in front of Stanislaus goalkeeper Clint Long and knocked it in for the win.

It was the Pioneers' first win over the Warriors in eight matches (1-5-2).
