LOS ANGELESNate Dunning had a goal and two assists, and Ariel Rosso had a pair of assists as the Occidental men's soccer team beat Caltech 4-0 at Jack Kemp Stadium on Saturday.

Ethan Glass scored Oxy's first goal in the 55th minute. Glass got the ball on the right side of the box on a pass from Dunning on an Oxy set piece, took a touch to his right foot and hit a shot inside the top-right corner of the near post.

Oxy had several corners and a series of close calls in the first half and in the moments leading up to Glass' goal. As soon as he scored, the floodgates opened. 

Dunning scored Oxy's second goal on a nice pass from Rosso, who carved his way through defenders in the box and dropped off the ball for an easy finish in the 63rd minute. 

Riley McCabe scored Oxy's third goal on a corner kick from Rosso in the 66th minute. The ball curved its way into the 6-yard box where McCabe volleyed it into the net. 

Adam Ned scored the Tigers' fourth goal on a pass from Dunning in the 79th minute.

Season Impact: Oxy improves to 5-2 overall and 3-2 in SCIAC.

Caltech falls to 1-6 overall and 0-6 in SCIAC.
