The California men’s soccer team lost to Oregon State, 1-0, in a Pac-12 Conference game on Sunday at Lorenz Field.
The Golden Bears’ record stands at 6-5-3 (2-1-3 Pac-12). The Beavers are 6-5-3 (3-1-3).
With a 2-1 win at Washington on Thursday, Cal went 1-1 on its trip to the Pacific Northwest.
“Tactically and defensively, there were some things that took us a long time to solve and hurt us a little bit,” Cal head coach Leonard Griffin said. “We did enough to get out of there with a point, but the man who scored, I appreciate him. He hit an amazing shot. Being separated on a road trip is not the end of the world, and I think we still have a lot to play for.
Oregon State took the lead when Arnau Farnos scored in the 19th minute.
In the 69th minute, Oregon State defender Nicklas Lund was shown a red card for a dangerous foul. Lund was also red-carded in the Sept. 14 game between the Bears and the Beavers in Berkeley.
After the red card, Cal fired five shots after initially recording just one. Nate Carrasco tested Oregon State goalkeeper Luis Castillo in the 84th minute, but the Beaver made the save. In the 88th minute, Adrian Guzman put another shot at the goal, but Castillo also saved it. Forward Arik Duncan Cal had one last chance, but his shot with 12 seconds left went wide.
Cal goalkeeper Zack Andoh made six saves.
The Bears will next play at No. 17 Stanford this Sunday, Oct. 29, in the first game of the Big Clasico this season.
