Now that the Fresno State women's soccer team has a taste for winning, the Bulldogs want to keep savoring it.
Following an 0-6-3 start, Fresno State picked up its second straight victory by defeating Cal Poly 2-1 on Sunday afternoon at Bulldog Stadium.
Senior Callie Hancock scored the winning goal just 43 seconds into the second half when junior Megan Mossman found her running toward the goal. Hancock collected the pass and put a shot into the right corner for her sixth goal of the season.
"I'm glad to see us actually get some results because we've been playing quite well," Bulldogs coach Brian Zwaschka said.
Junior Morgan Castain scored Fresno State's first goal in the 22nd minute off an assist from senior Vanessa Gonzalez (Clovis High). Sophomore Katie DeVault made five saves, including a diving stop midway through the second half.
Cal Poly fell to 3-5-1.
The Bulldogs (2-6-3) travel to Santa Clara on Thursday for a final nonconference game before returning home for Saturday's Mountain West Conference opener against Air Force.
