Both Pasadena City College men's and women's soccer teams will be hosting East Los Angeles College tomorrow.
The women's team will try to get another win to start rounding up the season at least with a .500 or above record. PCC will probably get the win, but to do so, they will need to have Brianna Carlos and Molly Pink anchoring the defense, have a Carolina Rangel, Sheima Berenji, and Alexa Weigand encendidas, and last but not least they will need to have Melissa Fudge ready to take advantage of any scoring chance.
The men's team will look for another win to prevail in the first spot in the South Coast Conference. The possible first eleven for tomorrow will be: Jorge Sainz; Bryant Castillo, Malcolm Linton, Albrik Tahmasia, Dante Bruno-Lopez; Jose Cortez, James Hernandez, Abbas Said, Ando Ghevadyan; Gabriel Chavarria and Gilbert Pogosyan.
ELAC won't be easy since they are physically fit to play in the tiny field that PCC has. Plus, ELAC comes pumped up from their previous game, as they gathered their first victory in the season against El Camino College.
We'll see what's gonna happen.
Meanwhile, it is more likely that PCC has already make the playoffs, but Rio Hondo College has been the first team in this season in qualifying to the playoffs as they already clinched the Foothill Conference title with two more games to play. Congrats to the Road Runners.
In another note, former PCC player, Yura Movsisyan, scored again to give Real Salt Lake the partial victory, 1-0, against Chivas USA. His goal came in the 90th minute (he scored in the previous game as well at the same time to give RSL the pass to the playoffs) with his back heel off a pass from Argentina playmaker Javier Morales.
Now, Movsisyan and RSL will play the second leg this upcoming Saturday at the Home Depot Center.
