Cal Poly Pomona men’s soccer team ranked fourth nationally

Final Men's SOccer

The Cal Poly Pomona men’s soccer team had a storybook season last year in finishing as national runner-up. Well a lot will be expected this year too as the Broncos start the new season ranked fourth in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) NCAA Division II poll.

The Broncos tied the school records last season with 17 wins for the second-consecutive season and later secured their NCAA Postseason victory with a 1-0 victory over Cal State Los Angeles. They also went on to win the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Tournament and the West Region title.

In the national semifinal the Broncos topped No. 5 Rockhurst 1-0, then fell in the National Championship game to Pfeiffer.

Cal Poly graduated eight players but a strong returning group is led by  Eshel Chardon, Mathew Perez, Sergi Monso and Nadeer Ghantous.

The Broncos open the new season on Sept. 1 with a 4:30 p.m. home game against Montana State-Billings.

Here is the link to the entire national poll.
