Held Strikes Twice as Green Tops White in Intrasquad Matchup

SAN LUIS OBISPO – Graduate forward Spencer Held scored both goals five minutes apart – including a converted penalty in the 48th – as the Green squad topped the White side, 2-0, during the Cal Poly men's soccer program's annual intrasquad matchup on Saturday evening inside Alex G. Spanos Stadium.

Held, an offseason graduate transfer from California, notched the eventual winning goal 125 seconds into the second period, slotting his penalty past freshman goalkeeper Gabe Penner at the left post.

Held doubled his total five minutes later, taking a pass from junior midfielder Kenneth Higgins in front of goal and firing past Penner.

With Cal Poly's roster divided in half for the matchup, Held produced a match high four shot attempts.

Junior Jason Hernandez and freshman Victor Rodriguez each played 45 minutes in goal to combine on the shutout for the Green squad.

Cal Poly, which opened its 2019 training camp on Wednesday, visits UNLV on Tuesday, Aug. 20 in the first of the program's two exhibitions. Kickoff time is 8 p.m.

The Mustangs return to Spanos Stadium to host Cal State Monterey Bay in their second exhibition on Saturday, Aug. 24 at 7 p.m.
