PCC men's soccer team maintains the first spot in the South Coast Conference, after defeating Compton College, 4-2, Friday at home.
Once again, James Hernandez pulled his goleador costume out, and scored two goals against an inexperienced keeper who went into his goal to get the ball four times.
Albrik Tahmasian and Jose "Gatusso" Cortez scored the other two for the win.
PCC's head coach Cherif Zein played all the roster as the game was sentenced in the 65th minute when Cortez scored. Compton would cut the difference to two, but there was nothing else that could be done.
PCC dominated and, at times, the team played like a truly champ. PCC showed good soccer with good passes, possession and effectiveness.
Also, in another good note, Malcolm Linton gathered his 14 assists in the season, breaking the school record of 12, set in 2001.
Besides assisting his teammates with his long throw-ins and free-kicks, Linton has been a true leader in the team as he managed and anchored the defense pretty well. Linton demostrated that the captain band no le queda grande.
In other games, Mt. SAC pulled a valuable win against Long Beach CC, 3-2. The win allows the Mounties to keep on chasing the Lancers as they are two points behind them.
As of LBCC, the team has to start saying good bye to it's chances of winning the SCC since they are seven points behind.
And last but not least, Cerritos College lost to Harbor, 3-2, and now Cerritos is five points behind the Lancers.
Damn, this conference is going crazy.
Whenever you get a chance, go and watch it!
