After clinching the fourth spot in the California Collegiate Athletic Association tournament, No. 11 Chico State men’s soccer team tied against the Stanislaus State Warriors in their last match of the regular season on Thursday.

The Warriors took the early lead over the Wildcats in the first half, until sophomore defender Carson Zarate scored off a free kick that Justin Ricketts capitalized on in the 38th minute.

The Warriors outshot Chico State (20-13). Sophomore Ricketts and senior Noah Ross had the most shots for the Wildcats with three each. Stanislaus had zero saves during the match.

Junior goalkeeper Emanuel Padilla continued to show his skills, notching three saves in Thursday’s game.
