Otters end spirited game in a tie

The Otters faced off against the Toros across the soccer field on Sept. 25. Men’s soccer teams from California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) and California State University, Dominguez Hills competed in spirited soccer matches at CSUMB resulting in a tie. 

Within minutes of the Men’s game beginning, grass was flying and whistles were being blown. 

Although there was little action on the scoreboard, with the match ending in a 1-1 tie after overtime, on the field it got physical. Several yellow cards were handed to CSUMB’s players and the Toros earned a red card, after #15 David Aguilar of Dominguez Hills pulled down CSUMB’s #9 Antonio Ordoñez 

The Otter men’s team boasts a diverse roster. Local and international players fill out the team with #3 Colin O’Mahony hailing from Cork, Ireland and #23 Henry Greiner from Munich, Germany. 

The head coach, Graeme Jaap, played professionally in Scotland before coaching soccer in the United States.

Both bystanders and players were yelling throughout the match, with one player yelling “Mama Mia!” in frustration. 

The Otters managed to tie up the game with only three minutes left. Marcus Decouto took the shot that tied the game and pushed the match into overtime.
The Otters travel to Stanislaus State on Oct. 1 for their next game.
