Toros set for the Seawolves

first_imgIn CSDH’s semifinal, Monterey Bay needed just one conversion to advance via shootout after the Toros failed to convert on their second attempt. Keeper Brenden Baca, however, returned the unlucky play that plagued the Toros all night as he sent his shot off the crossbar as the 10th kicker, sending the game into “do-or-die” mode. In the second session, Tibu Casillas stepped up as the fourth Toro in their rotation and sent his shot just off Baca’s forearm and into the net, resulting in Monterey Bay needing a conversion to force the 10th round. Kevin Proschold, however, failed to convert on his attempt, giving the Toros a chance to defend their crown today. Sonoma won its only previous meeting with CSDH, 2-0, in Rohnert Park, with a goal in each half.
