The Westmont men’s soccer team recently signed two goalkeepers, giving it three newcomers to battle for the starting position.
Måns Ingvarson of Malmö, Sweden and Abraham Arteaga of Oxnard join incoming freshman Isaac Swanson as Warrior shot-stoppers.
They’ll be competing to replace four-year starter, All-Golden State Athletic Conference honoree and NAIA All-American Lalo Delgado, who is now playing professionally with Las Vegas Lights FC of the USL-Championship Division.
Ingvarson will be a sophomore at Westmont in the fall after transferring from Essex County C.C. in Newark, N.J., where his team reached the NJCAA Division I East District championship game.
The 6-foot goalkeeper played club soccer for Malmö FF from the time he was 4 years old to 18. At 18 and 19, Ingvarson played for the Trelleborgs FF first team in Sweden.
Additionally, the Swedish international was the first goalkeeper for Skåne FF, which featured the best players from Skåne County. He also played in friendly games for Sweden during four national team camps at youth levels.
Arteaga is a recent graduate of Pacifica High. He helped the Tritons advance to the CIF-SS Division 2 semifinals this past season. He earned First Team All-Pacific View League honors and served as team captain.
The 5-foot-11 goalkeeper also played for Oxnard United Soccer Club.
Westmont men’s soccer is scheduled to begin its season on Sept. 5 against UCSB.
