Soccer Takes Over First Place
In a showdown for sole possession of first place in the ACCAC, the #1 ranked Roughrider soccer team blanked the #6 ranked Pima Community College Aztecs this afternoon in Tucson, 3-0. YC is now 10-0-0 overall and 8-0-0 in league play and the previously unbeaten Aztecs fall to 7-1-0.
In the hard fought, physical match, Yavapai took a 1-0 halftime lead and added a quick goal early in the second half to take control of the match. The Roughriders added a score in the waning minutes of the contest to seal the victory. Sophomore Justin Meram scored his second hat trick of the year as he netted all of the scoring on the day.
The victory puts YC two games away from being 400 games over .500 with a 427-29-13 overall record in the program’s 20-year history.
The home team will be on the road this next week with matches at Chandler/Gilbert Community College on Wednesday and Mesa Community College on Saturday. Both games will begin at 4:30 PM.
