The San Diego State Aztecs (2-5-0) defeated the University of San Diego Toreros (4-2-0) 3-0 Friday night on the back of freshman Denise Castro’s hat trick.
After suffering defeat in their last five games, the Aztecs came into Torero Stadium looking to bounce back with a strong performance, and bounce back they did.
SDSU’s previous matchup against USD took place in September 2019 when a 78th-minute goal gave the Toreros a 1-0 victory.
The Toreros started the game on the front foot and looked to be the more dangerous side.
The first shot of the game came in just the second minute when junior Aztec defender Kiera Utush fouled USD junior defender Malia Walencewicz 25-yards out from goal.
