Panchenko becomes third player to get hat trick this season
Sophomore Pavel Panchenko became the third straight Roughrider player to record three goals in a game joining Justin Meram and Juan Garcia. The Roughriders have outscored their opponents 28-2 in three games this season. At the 22nd minute of play, Yavapai broke a 1-1 tie on Panchenko’s second goal of the game and carried a 6-1 lead into halftime. The home squad added two more goals after the intermission to erase any hope WNCC had of mounting a comeback.
Saturday night, Yavapai will look for their 200th home victory as they face the Blue Knights from Dakota County Technical College, MN. The match will be played at the amphitheater in Prescott Valley and will kick-off at 7:00 PM.
