The loss was the first of the season in conference play for USD, which would have opened up an eight-point lead in the WCC with a win over LMU. WCC is one of three West Coast men's conferences in which teams play home-and-home series and do not compete in a postseason tournament. LMU and USD meet against Sunday at Sullivan Field.
* A-SUN SHOWDOWN. Campbell opened the season with a 1-6-1 record, but the Camels refused to lay down. They won for the fifth time in their last six games, defeating Stetson, 2-0, Thursday in their Atlantic Sun top-of-the-standings clash. Freshman Keegan Terry and Justin Smith provided the goals for Campbell, which took sole possession of first place with the victory at Stetson.
"I'm proud of the resolve we showed in our play," said Campbell coach Doug Hess. "Our guys showed that they wanted this game tonight." He was particularly proud of the Camel defense that limited the A-Sun's highest-rated offense (2.2 goals per game) to just three shots on target.
