Men’s soccer finished the week up 1-1, defeating Caltech, 3-2, and falling a goal short of victory to Whittier, 3-2.

“We gave a lot of effort throughout the game,” said forward Matt Paulson.

La Verne was matched up against Whittier last Friday on the Poets’ field. ULV was shutout, 2-0, at the conclusion of the first half. Players stepped up their play, and during the second half, the Leopards put two goals in the net.

The Poets managed to score again and finish with a conference win.

Art Pico received a ball from Paulson in the 56th minute for the first Leopard goal.

Miller scored in the 87th minute unassisted. La Verne had 14 shots on goal and Whittier had 10. Poet goalkeeper Aaron McCann saved three shots and Leopard keeper Jason Lotz saved one.

“Jason Lotz played very well,” said Paulson.

On Wednesday, the Leopards had a strong showing against Caltech, putting three goals together to gain the win.

“We started out a little slow, but we picked things up after their first goal and were able to hold on at the end,” said sweeper John Helmer.

Lance Pico scored twice and Miller came up with one goal.

“We did not play to our potential, but we scored three goals to gain the ‘w’,”said Miller.

Pico and Miller both lead their team with goals scored at six apiece.

La Verne plays host to Claremont tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. in a conference match.
