YC Soccer Pounds South Mountain
For the first time this season Yavapai came from behind to record their 8th victory of the season by beating the Cougars from South Mountain Community College, 10-1. YC remains undefeated in ACCAC action with a record of 6-0-0.
South Mountain struck first in the 10th minute of play to take a short lived lead and give the Roughrider their only deficit of the season. Regardless, the #1 ranked Roughriders would be quick to respond with two goals in the remainder of the first half to take a 2-1 lead into intermission. However, that was as close as the opponent would get to the defending national champions as the Roughriders scorched the net with 8 unanswered goals in the final 45 minutes of regulation.
27-0-0 at Prescott Valley Amphitheater
Yavapai will undoubtedly remain in the top spot of the NJCAA national polls on Monday and stay atop the conference standings. YC will host Phoenix College on Wednesday, September 17th at Ken Lindley Field in Prescott. Kick-off will be at 6:00 PM.
