Cal Poly Falls in 90th Minute versus No. 1 Stanford in Exhibition

SAN LUIS OBISPO – Junior forward Adam Olsen's 66th-minute goal cancelled out Stanford's opening strike, but Cardinal junior forward Foster Langsdorf scored with nine seconds remaining in a Wednesday exhibition as the Cal Poly men's soccer team fell at Alex G. Spanos Stadium, 2-1.

With the match scoreless into the 63rd minute, Stanford junior defender Drew Skundrich and sophomore midfielder Sam Werner combined to find freshman defender Tanner Beason, who fired past Mustang halftime substitute goalkeeper Simon Boehme.

Just 98 seconds later, however, Olsen (above) latched on to a loose ball that bounced off a Stanford defender in the penalty area and pounded his only shot attempt of the game into the Cardinal net.

Stanford enjoyed an initial opportunity to win the game in regulation after a Mustang defender was whistled for a foul inside the Cardinal penalty area. However, Stanford senior defender Brian Nana-Sinkam struck the left post with his penalty attempt.

Nine seconds from full-time, the Cardinal produced the game-winning goal with junior defender Thomas Hilliard-Arce playing a ball into the penalty area from deep for Langsdorf, who scored at the left post.

Cal Poly concludes preseason preparations when hosting Loyola Marymount for a 5 p.m. exhibition matchup on Sunday, Aug. 21.

The Mustangs open the regular season at No. 8 North Carolina on Friday, Aug. 26 at 4:30 p.m. PT.
