YC Battles Heat In Victory
The Roughrider soccer team scored two second half goals Monday afternoon in 2-1 victory over Paradise Valley Community College. Battling the opponent and 100 plus degree weather, YC got the game winner with 5 minutes remaining in the match to up their record to 8-3-0 while Paradise Valley falls to 2-9-0.
Paradise Valley took the early lead with a goal in the 28th minute of the game and held onto that lead going into halftime. In the 58th minute, the Roughriders got on the board with a goal by Jacob Nevarez assisted by Carlos Lara. The match remained tied until YC knocked in the game winner on a corner kick by Adam Crossingham and Viktor Rodakovic found the back of the net in the 85th minute of the game.
Yavapai returns to the Valley on Wednesday in another matinee affair at Scottsdale Community College. Earlier in the season, YC beat the Artichokes at Ken Lindley Field, 3-2. Wednesday’s match will begin at 1:00 PM.
