Midfielder Connor Brandt scored in the 52nd minute, lifting the San Diego men's soccer team to a 1-0 win over No. 1 Cal at Goldman Field on Friday.

"It's a long season, the chances of losing a game in an 18-game season are probably greater than not," Bears coach Kevin Grimes said. "They (San Diego) played a very good match. We had some great chances. We had one hit the post and had one just trickle wide, but it didn't happen."

Seven minutes after halftime, Cal goalkeeper Justin Taillole deflected a cross, and Brandt collected it 25-yards from goal. His quick-release shot snuck past a diving Taillole.

Cal fell to 10-1-2, as San Diego improved to 4-6-4.
