The men’s soccer team gained a victory over El Camino College on Nov. 4 at its last home game with a score of 4 – 2.

At the end of the game, Head Coach Edgar Manvelyan was proud that his sophomore players accomplished a win in their last home game of the season.

“I’m so excited. It’s been a while since we’ve won,” said Manvelyan. “We played a very good second half.”

A handful of spectators came out to Robinson Stadium to endure the rain and cheer for their chosen team.

Irving Rosales, forward, headed the first goal which was assisted by Michael Alcaraz and Khaled Gara in the first 25 minutes.

Chris Marckstadt came back for El Camino to tie it up 32 minutes into the first half.

Magnus Peterson scored a second goal for El Camino just four minutes before halftime to give them control of the game.

PCC had a rough start trailing at halftime. With four off-sides called against them, and a yellow card on Alcaraz, the Lancers had to rely on strong defensive play.

The start of the second half saw multiple attempts on goal to no avail.

It wasn’t until the 82nd minute that Vahagn Manoyan, midfielder, tied up the game again, to give PCC an opportunity to win.

The final goal was scored in the last minute, with an assist by Ryosuke Tarui, captain.

“We’ve been playing well, but haven’t been winning,” said Tarui. “Today we didn’t give up. I’m pretty sure we’re better than other teams.”
