PASADENA, Calif. (Oct. 15, 2016) – Senior J.D. Feist (Richardson, Texas / Jesuit Coll. Prep) surpassed the rare milestone of 500 career saves with a 13-save performance at the SCIAC-leading University of Redlands on Saturday afternoon.
"It is an outstanding achievement for JD, and speaks not only to his ability as a goalkeeper and shot stopper – he has consistently been a high performer within the team and leads us by his example – but also to his deliberate approach to his preparation and physical fitness," Head Coach Phil Murray said. "He has been ever-present in his four-year career and will leave a huge void to fill in the backline when he graduates."
A mere five minutes into the first half, the Bulldogs were on the board courtesy of a Casey ChubbFertal header. In the 12th minute, Caltech gave up an own goal to put the score at 2-0. The Bulldogs would strike again that half as Kayvon Parsa tapped in a deflection for the third.
The Beavers defense would hold strong from the 24th to 67th minutes before giving up the final goal of the game. Feist's 13 saves marked his eighth double-digit performance of the season, while freshman Theo Yang (Columbia, Md. / Long Reach) recorded the Beavers' lone shot on goal, which came in the second half.
Head Coach Phil Murray and the Beavers will host Occidental College (6-8-1 overall, 5-7 SCIAC) this Wednesday, Oct. 19 at 4 p.m.
