College Roundup: Cal Poly wins Big West men's soccer opener

The Cal Poly men’s soccer team (3-6-0) got its first road win of the season when David Zamora came through with a header in the fifth minute of overtime to propel the Mustangs past Cal State Fullerton in both teams’ Big West Conference opener Wednesday.

Patrick Sigler redirected a cross from Junior Burgos back toward Zamora at the near post and the junior forward beat Titans keeper Trevor Whiddon to keep Cal Poly unbeaten and untied in five straight meetings with the Titans (4-4-1).

Zamora nearly scored 90 seconds into the overtime period, but his shot hit the crossbar, and Burgos’ rebound shot missed.
