Coggan, Stirm score in wins 10/25/04

Seattle Pacific University (11-2-2) defeated Grand Canyon 3-1 at Interbay Stadium. Coggan’s 2nd goal of the season sealed the game with around 9 minutes to play. SPU dominated the game, and outshot Grand Canyon 23-6.

Grand Canyon made it close by closing SPU’s lead to 2-1. But Coggan put the game out of reach with 9:06 remaining. Alone on the left side of the box, he took a Letts passs and buried it in the right corner. Ross Vaillancourt (Jr., Bedford, NH) also assisted on the play. 

#18 Seattle Pacific concludes its three-game home stand Wednesday night by hosting Chico State at 7. 

Down in Santa Barbara…

Azusa Pacific walked all over traditional rival Westmont College.  Perhaps the game that APU most wanted to win, the game pits Phil Wolf (APU’s coach) vs. his older brother Dave Wolf (Westmont’s coach).  The last time APU beat Westmont in a GSAC match was 2000.  Things change, and who better to open the scoring than Brandon Stirm…the former VC star who APU signed away from Westmont. 

Stirm got things rolling in the 19th minute with his fifth goal of the season. Ian Leibbrandt played a ball across the goal mouth and to a waiting Stirm, who one-timed with the inside of his foot and into the net for a 1-0 Cougar lead. Stirm now has 5 goals and his 7 assists give him a tie for the most on the team, in his freshman season. 

The NAIA’s No. 3-ranked Cougars completely dominated the field, and the younger Wolf finally got the better of big brother, and this one couldn’t be sweeter—a 4-1 win in Santa Barbara that puts the Cougars in position to claim its fifth GSAC title and first since 2001.  

“It was a good win,” said Wolf. “The guys played really well and we dominated the game. Hopefully, we can continue to play this well as we head into the playoffs.”  

The win keeps the Cougars unbeaten and moves them to 14-0-1 overall, 8-0 GSAC. It also moves their school-record unbeaten streak to 17 straight dating back to the final 2 matches of last year.  

Westmont falls to 8-5-1, 3-3-1. 

APU heads to Fullerton to take on Hope International on Tuesday.
