Eric Shannon (Jr, Valencia, Calif., Valencia HS) made three saves. Arguably, Shannon’s biggest save came with with just over five minutes to play when turned away a Jarod Stigall header. It was Shannon’s seventh shutout of the season and the 21st of his career.
“It was a hard fought victory in adverse conditions,” said CSUB head coach Simon Tobin. “We kept playing until the final whistle.”
