Former Arroyo Grande High standout Ashley Roese scored her first collegiate goal to lift the Long Beach State women’s soccer team to a 1-0 victory over San Diego on Sunday and into the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament.
Scoring in the 56th minute for the 21st-ranked 49ers, Roese helped Long Beach State (18-5-1) extend its program-record win streak to eight matches.
The 49ers will travel to play top-seeded and third-ranked Duke on Friday at 4 p.m. at Duke’s Koskinen Stadium.
