Ricardo Perez, Eric Miller and Timo Pitter scored one goal each to lead Creighton’s men’s soccer team to a 3-0 victory over visiting Cal Poly on Sunday in Omaha, Neb.

The sixth-ranked Bluejays (2-0-0) had a slim edge on the Mustangs (1-1-0) in shots, but were able to ride a combined three-save effort from goalkeepers Alex Bolowich and Connor Sparrow to the shutout.

“The experience of playing a top-10 opponent on the road is a valuable one for us. Creighton had a few good chances and finished all of them,” Cal Poly head coach Paul Holocher said in a news release. “We didn’t create as many chances as we would have liked, even though we had moments where we controlled the game — especially in the first half. The game became more open in the second half, and credit to Creighton for quality and toughness. We’ll learn from this.”

Cal Poly held Creighton, a 2012 College Cup semifinalist, without a shot on goal for the first 35 minutes of the match.

Mustangs sophomore goalkeeper Wade Hamilton made two saves.
