In front of the second biggest crowd in program history, sophomore midfielder Dana Fujikuni delivered the game-winning goal that gave the 49ers a 1-0 win over No. 11 USC Friday night.

The crowd 1,656, were treated to another impressive victory as LBSU beat a ranked PAC-12 opponent for

No. 11 USC Friday night.

With the first assist of her career, freshman defender Chloe Froment connected with Fujikuni, who delivered the deciding goal to edge the Trojans in the 66th minute.

“It feels great to win,” Fujikuni said. “It was a team collective win; we stuck to our roles and the game plan. We definitely emphasize on set pieces and scores on a set piece, and it feels good.”

The 49ers (2-0-1) went to beat the Trojans (0-2-0) 1-0 in their third game of the season.

The Trojans had a total of 13 shots in the game while the 49ers were shutout in the first half, but turned in on in the second half with five shots on goal.

“I knew once we had 0-0 at the half that we would get a shot in the second half,” head coach Mauricio Ingrassia said. “We talked about that [set pieces], we scored five goals in the run of play and finally got a goal off a set which is a big one.”

Senior goalkeeper Ashton McKeown stopped a shot by the Trojans late in the game to earn her second straight shutout of the season.

LBSU needed a team effort to get their second win of the season.

The 49ers will look to continue their momentum as they host San Diego State tonight at 7 p.m.

With their first eight games at George Allen Field, the home field advantage bodes well for LBSU’s future with five more games at home before traveling away from LBSU.

“We have to have a good mindset heading into Monday night,” said Ingrassia. “Every game is a dogfight.”
