Ingrassia Collects 150th Career Win in 3-0 Victory Over San Diego
The Beach outshot the Toreros 13-3 in the win
LONG BEACH, Calif. -- The Long Beach State women's soccer team came out on fire as the Beach dominated San Diego State in a 3-0 victory which gave head coach Mauricio Ingrassia his 150th career victory.
Long Beach State (4-2-1) recorded a total of 13 shots to San Diego's (1-5-0) three shots and led the Toreros, 6-1 with shots on goal. Additionally, the Beach collected three corner kicks, while not allowing San Diego any.
"This was a good win," Ingrassia said. "I owe [my 150th career win] to my current and past staffs, especially my associate head coach of 10 years, Jeff Joyner, and to all of the players who have worn our jerseys."
Ingrassia's 150th career victory came in grand fashion as Long Beach State's offense was on point from the start. Within the first five minutes of action, Ayana Robles took a cross from Katie Pingel and drove it to the back left corner of the net. The goal marked Robles' second of the season.
The Beach took a 1-0 lead into halftime and were leading the Toreros 10-1 on shots at the break.
Once the second half got going, it didn't take long for LBSU to strike again as Tori Bolden passed the ball to Rocio Rodriguez who tallied her first goal of the year in the 53rd minute of action to put the Beach up by two.
Long Beach State continued its offensive tear as Rola Badawiya broke loose in the 85th minute and struck the back of the net on an unassisted goal for her first score of the season.
Bolden and Badawiya led the offensive attack as Bolden notched four shots with one on goal and one assist, while Badawiya recorded three shots, with one on target and one goal.
The Beach's offense was paired with a stout defense that limited the Toreros to just three shots in the game as Summer Mason took two and Kelley Carusa took the other. Mason was also the only Torero who was able to connect for a shot on goal, which was saved by Hummel, marking her first save in an LBSU uniform.
Long Beach State returns to the pitch on Sunday, September 10 at Loyola Marymount at 1 p.m. The contest at LMU kicks off a three-match road swing for the Beach.
