Chargers face with four major injuries and loses at Santa Ana 2-0

Horn suffers concussion
in a 2-0 loss to Santa Ana
Santa Ana, CA - The Charger Men's Soccer team is still looking for the formula on how to beat Santa Ana in its backyard. On odd years at Santa Ana, the Chargers find a way to tie the Dons: 2-2 in 2011, 0-0 in 2009 and 1-1 in 2007.  Last season, the Chargers had led twice only to see Santa Ana stormed back in the 80-minute mark to score on rebound to tie the game.  This time the Dons ensure that they preserve a victory. Why not, it is an even year after all. The Dons lead 2-0 at the half which eventually becomes the final score. The Chargers have opportunities but unable to cash them in.

Losing the game to Santa Ana is bad enough, but the Chargers face worse things today when Sergio Balbuena breaks his leg and likely out for the season. Chris Berkley has potential broken ribs. Lasse horn has a concussion. Brock Gustafson injures his ankle. All key players and contributors to the success of the team thus far. 

Coach Ed Kephart is left with puzzles which he has to find a quick solution before the team host Fullerton on October 2.
