YC to Championship Match
Irving Garcia nets two goals
The #3 ranked Roughrider soccer team had to come from behind to kick their way into the championship game of the Five Star Tournament on Friday at Ken Lindley Field. YC beat #13 Schoolcraft College, MI, 2-1.
Yavapai fell behind in the first half 1-0 on a defensive mishap and right before halftime, sophomore Irving Garcia scored the first of his two goals to knot the score at 1. In the second half, the YC defense tightened up and Garcia netted his 2nd goal to give the Roughriders the victory and a trip to the championship game.
In earlier tournament action, #4 San Jacinto, TX pounded #14 College of Southern Maryland, 8-0 to earn the right at the title match.
In what could be a preview of an NJCAA National Tournament matchup, #3 and #4 will kick-off at 7:30 PM tonight at Ken Lindley Field in Prescott.
