MADISON, Wis. -- The University of Wisconsin men's soccer team fell to San Diego State, 1-0, in the second game of the Wisconsin Soccer Classic before 1,022 fans at the McClimon Complex on Friday night.

"We worked very hard this week, and we definitely showed improvement tonight," head coach John Trask said. "What I was most concerned about was seeing that the guys were resilient with what we did in training this week and that they came out and played better. It was noticeably better tonight, and that's what is most important right now."

San Diego State (4-1-0) took the lead in the 37th minute and held on for the 1-0 victory. The Aztecs drew a foul about 20 yards out from the Badgers' net, and Raymundo Reza sent in a free kick to the far right post. UW goalkeeper Ryan Vint (Plymouth, Minn.) deflected the initial shot, but Daniel Steres came in from the right side and found the back of the net on a one-timer to the far left post. 

Wisconsin (1-4-0) was not without scoring opportunities. In the 17th minute, junior Colin Monasterio (Maple Grove, Minn.) found sophomore Kyle McCrudden (Wilmette, Ill.) on an indirect kick from the left side of the field. McCrudden one-timed a shot, but it skimmed over the crossbar.

The Badgers kept up the offensive pressure in the second half as the teams each recorded five shots in the final 45 minutes. In the 56th minute, senior Jon Rzepka (Kentwood, Mich.) connected with fellow senior Aaron Nichols (Woodstock, Ill.) on a corner kick, but Nichols' header sailed just wide of the goal.

With just over five minutes remaining, Wisconsin drew a free kick right outside the 18-yard box. Rzepka tapped the ball into play, and freshman Joey Tennyson (Milwaukee, Wis.) drilled a shot that was blocked by the San Diego State wall.

The Aztecs outshot the Badgers, 8-7, posting three shots on goal to UW's two. Vint and SDSU keeper Brad Byrns each finished with two saves.

"I thought we were pretty good defensively against a talented attacking team," Trask said. "They had a few shots from distance, but they didn't have much penetration in our box. In that respect, I thought we really stepped up in that part of the game."

Dayton topped Milwaukee by a score of 2-0 in the opening game of the Wisconsin Soccer Classic. The tournament concludes on Sunday with Milwaukee and San Diego State kicking off at noon. The Badgers and Flyers then wrap up the tournament at 2:30 p.m.
