Hawks Defeat Santa Monica
Orange, CA - Friday afternoon the SCC men's soccer team hosted Santa Monica junior college. On paper, this seemed to be one of the top preseason match ups of the year with both teams coming off impressive wins on Tuesday.
The Hawks waisted no time getting on the score board with a goal in the 10th minute by freshmen forward Roberto Escudero, assisted by freshman midfielder Ivan Azpeitia. However, 14 minutes later, Santa Monica was able to answer back. This was the first goal allowed by goal keeper Shion Jahangiri and the Hawks this year.
In the 30th minute, the Hawks took the lead once again with a cross from freshman midfielder Carlos Moreno finding freshman midfielder Joaquin Esparza on the back door for an easy tap in and his first goal of the year. The Hawks went into halftime with a 2-1 lead, out shooting their opponent 8 to 3.
Starting the second half, the Hawks were not satisfied with the 2-1 score, and came out with something to prove after giving up a careless goal in the first half. Freshman striker Roberto Escudero took matters into his own hands adding 2 more goals to complete his hat trick for the Hawks and finishing the game 4-1. The Hawks play again at home Friday, September 6th at 4:30PM against Mira Costa College.
