YC Soccer Heats Up The Gauchos
Meram scores three goals and one assist; Khamis has two goals and one assist; Okito scores one goal and has two assists; Gilmer gets three assists
The #1 ranked Roughrider soccer team recorded their second victory of the year this afternoon over the Gauchos from Glendale Community College, 8-1. Sophomore Justin Meram recorded a hat trick and Francis Khamis knocked in two goals as Yavapai continued their torrid scoring pace on the young season.
Overcoming 100+ degree weather, the YC kickers scored 5 goals in the first 23 minutes and 20 seconds to take a 5-0 lead into halftime. Yavapai scored two more unanswered goals after the intermission before GCC ruined the shutout in the 79th minute of play. So far this season, the Roughriders have outscored their opponents by a score of 20-1.
YC takes a break from ACCAC action this weekend as they play host to Western Nebraska Community College on Friday night and Dakota County Technical College, MN the following evening. Both matches will be played at the amphitheater in Prescott Valley. Kick-off for both matches will be at 7:00 PM.
