Cal Poly Rallies Late for 2-1 Win Over Lamar in Home Opener

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - A 12-2 second-half advantage in shots paid dividends for the Cal Poly women's soccer team on Sunday afternoon, as the Mustangs came from behind for a 2-1 win over Lamar in their home opener at Alex G. Spanos Stadium.

Cal Poly (1-1-0) kept testing the Lamar back line, though, and in the 79th minute, Allie Bégin passed to McKenzie Flood, whose shot was blocked. On the rebound, Kendra Bonsall came in to fire inside the left post to level the score. It was the sixth-latest time for an equalizer in school history.

Alyssa Giannetti saved shots in the 17th and 29th minutes for Cal Poly.

In preventing the draw, Krieghoff also broke a tie for the third-most career goals in Cal Poly history, as her 33rd surpassed the 32 netted by Wendy Jones from 1992-95, and leaves her now 12 back of the 45 by Kolleen Kassis (also 1992-95) and six behind Gina Oceguera (1995-99).

Also of note, it was the second time in as many games that Bégin came forward to contribute in the attack, as she put away a header at Pepperdine on Friday.

Cal Poly will stay at home to take on Florida Atlantic in another Sunday game at noon Aug. 31.
