NORTHRIDGE, Calif.- The University of Memphis men's soccer team (1-0-0) takes on the Cal State Northridge Matadors (1-0-0) on Sunday night in the final game of the Ryan Rossi Memorial Tournament.
Both teams are coming off of victories on Friday night. The Tigers defeated Cal State Fullerton 1-0 behind a Shane Keely free-kick goal in the 72nd minute. Keely knocked his shot up and over the Fullerton wall and into the top left corner of the net. Tigers goalie Cody Uzcategui and the Memphis defense were able to keep the Titans off of the board.
Cal State Northridge scored three times in the second half to defeat Albany 3-0.
The two programs have only faced each other one previous time, and played to a 0-0 draw in 2007. The Matadors return their top three scorers from last season's Big West championship team, and were 7-3 at Matador Soccer Field in 2012.
Live stats and FREE live audio are both available for Sunday night's match.
