Cal State Dominguez Hills, best known as the home of the Home Depot Center, won its second NCAA Division II men's title with a 3-0 win over Dowling Sunday at Tampa's Pepin-Rodd Stadium

With a team entirely comprised of players from California high schools or junior colleges, the Toros dominated Dowling in the final and put three goals past its giant keeper, the 6-foot-6 Nemanja Veljovic.

CSUDH, which outshot the Lions, 21-7, got goals from Brian Alvarez, Andrew Marinez and Hiram Rangel to finish the season with a 13-game unbeaten streak.

In the semifinals, the Toros fell behind to host Tampa on a goal by Jamaican star Ryan Maxwell after only 15 seconds, but they recovered to win, 3-2, in overtime.

The Toros also won the 2000 men's soccer title.
