Sunday’s meeting between Sonoma State and Cal State Los Angeles was shaping up as a battle of unbeatens until both teams lost on Friday.
Still, the 2 p.m. meeting in Rohnert Park should be plenty intrguing.
The Seawolves, ranked seventh in the nation, enter with a 10-1-2 record and CSU L.A., ranked No. 1 nationally, has a 11-1-1 record after a 3-0 loss to Humboldt State on Friday.
The Golden Eagles will also arrive with a pair of former Empire stars in senior defenders Mickey Daly and Arthur Bahr.
Daly, who played at Sonoma Valley, was an All-American at Santa Rosa Junior College and was a second-team All-West Region pick at CSULA last year. Bahr played at Cardinal Newman and SRJC and made 15 starts for the Golden Eagles last year.
