Westmont Men Earn a Point After Draw With No. 17 Hope

Augie Andrade converted a game-tying penalty kick in the second half, and Westmont battled 17th-ranked Hope International to a 1-1 draw in a GSAC men's soccer match on Saturday at Thorrington Field.

The result leaves the Warriors (7-4-1, 4-2-1, 13 points in GSAC) one point behind the second-place Royals (10-0-4, 4-0-2, 14 pts). Menlo leads the conference with 16 points (5-0-1). Westmont hosts Menlo on Thursday.

Hope took a 1-0 lead in the 28th minute on penalty kick after Juan Gutierrez was fouled in the box. Thales Serra buried the ball from the 12-yard spot.
In the 62nd minute, Mason Garell passed the ball from the left flank to Matt Lariviere inside the 18-yard box and he was taken down. Andrade stepped up for the penalty shot and scored the equalizer.
The majority of the game was played on the Warriors' offensive end. They outshot International 21-8 and had a 10-3 advantage on corner kicks. Westmont, however, was unable to get another shot past Royals goalkeeper Ryan Brown.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
