Cal Soccer

Edwards Stadium-Home of Cal Soccer
So, I was in Berkeley and went to a place to get a haircut, then I was walking down to the BART and passed Edwards Stadium. The Cal Men's Soccer Team was playing Nebraska Omaha, so I decided to take a look and shoot some pics:

Cal's Christian Thierjung scores on a penalty kick
Nebraska Omaha's goalie Joseph Ghitis
Cal's Trevor Haberkorn
Nebraska Omaha's Joel Kazhila

Cal's Ugo Rebecchini going for the ball

I got there for the last ten minutes of the match and Cal won 2-0.
