The UCI Mens Soccer team won the Big West Championship for the second year in a row and earned a first round bye in the NCAA tournament. They also earned the 16th seed in the tournament and got to host Stanford in the second round. I was excited to shoot such a big game, especially after not being able to shoot the second round last year due to the game being on the east coast. As a fan it was a disappointing game, although as a photographer it was interesting and action packed. I tried to get some emotion from our team after the game but there really wasn’t much. There were handshakes, a few hugs, and then a huddle. Nothing too special to end the night.
