Offense Explosion Fuels Men’s Soccer 5-1 Win over San Jose State on Friday
SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Santa Clara men's soccer exploded for five goals, all from different players, including career firsts by Presten Manthey and Dylan Carrubba to bookend the scoring in the 5-1 win over San Jose State on Friday at Stevens Stadium.  
 
In between Manthey and Carrubba's scoring, the Broncos (2-1) also got scores from Javier Ruiz Duran, Sam Agosti and Alan Camacho Soto to net the most goals since 2003 when they poured in six against George Washington.
 
Making his first career start as a Bronco, Manthey opened the scoring in the 26th minute on a feed from Terrell Smith after a pair of San Jose State (0-3) shots hit the woodwork.  A streaking Smith was on the receiving end of a through ball from just inside midfield to the edge of the box before finding Manthey, who calmly slotted it past the flat-footed Spartan goalkeeper, Rodrigo Reyes-Zavalza. 
 
Manthey wasn't finished there as he assisted in the next two goals, both setup by defensive pressures.  
 
In the 31st minute, Ruiz Duran forced a turnover inside the center circle that popped to the feet of Manthey who passed it back to Ruiz Duran before chipping it over Reyes-Zavalza to give the Broncos a 2-0 advantage.  
 
Holding a two-goal advantage at the half, the Broncos quickly scored their third goal just a minute into the second 45.  Once again, the Bronco defensive pressure forced a Spartan turnover deep in their zone.  Quick passes from Manthey and Bravo found Agosti six-yards away where he blasted a left-footed shot that found the back of the net in the far post.  
 
The Spartans got a goal back in the 60th minute from Eduardo Buenfil to cut the Broncos lead to 3-1 but five minutes later Alan Camacho Soto's header off of Alejandro Barajas' corner kick gave the Broncos a three goal cushion once again.  
 
Carrubba put the finishing touches in the 69th minute with the fifth and final goal of the match off a Camacho Soto steal and assist.
