Sophomore Mike Muñoz had a goal and an assist to lead the Cal men’s soccer team past San Francisco, 2-0, on Sunday at Edwards Stadium. 

The win was the third straight for the Bears (4-2-1), who haven’t given up goal during that stretch. 

The Bears out-shot USF 14-7 and controlled the ball for most of the second half, just missing on several opportunities to score additional goals. 

“Today was probably our best game from minute one to minute 90,” Cal head coach Kevin Grimes said. “We came out completely focused, motivated and anxious to play.” 

Cal scored just their second first-half goal of the season on Sunday. Muñoz drove a corner kick high into the area and freshman Tyson Wahl rose and headed the ball into the upper-right corner of the goal, just over a defender’s head. The 32nd-minute goal was Wahl’s first college score and Muñoz’s first assist of the season. 

“We’ve been working hard on set pieces in training, and it finally paid off today,” Grimes said. All of Cal’s previous goals came from the run of play. 

Muñoz gave the Bears a two-goal cushion in the 51st minute, with freshman Garrett Terracciano flicking a cross back onto Muñoz’s foot from near the goal line. Muñoz took a touch before slamming the ball past USF goalkeeper Mark Muleady for his team-high third goal of the season. 

The Bears travel to Santa Clara on Thursday to take on the Broncos, then host Tulsa on Sunday at noon at Edwards Stadium. 


• FRESNO – Cal freshman Tracy Hamm tallied her first career hat trick, scoring three goals against Fresno State on Sunday in a 4-1 win. Hamm leads the Bears with six goals on the season. 

Freshman Dania Cabello scored the other goal for Cal (5-1-1) off of a Carly Fuller corner kick, while Kotri Koivisto-Nokso scored for Fresno State (1-7). Kim Yokers and Kassie Doubrava also had assists for the Bears. 

Cal heads east next weekend for games against Penn and Hartford.
