The Cal Poly men’s soccer team weathered a late UC Riverside surge to pull out a 2-1 victory Saturday night at Alex G. Spanos Stadium.

The Mustangs scored in the 29th minute, when Chase Minter found Matt LaGrassa for a header from the right side of the box. It was LaGrassa’s fourth goal of the year.

Cal Poly scored again in the 80th minute when Joseph Bolous slotted a through ball on the left side that found Jared Pressley, who put away his first goal of the season.
