After a loss earlier in the week to Mt. San Antonio (5-2), the Men’s soccer team failed to get another win after a 2-0 loss on the road to the Huskies.
“We didn’t finish our opportunities to score. We had 4-5 chances to score, we were doing a terrible job of finishing,” said assistant coach Chris Ferrer. “Throughout the game it was self inflicted wounds that cost us this game, we keep shooting ourselves in the foot.”
The Lancers got off to a good start as they controlled the ball for most of the first half. After many opportunities to score they failed to put any points on the board. The defense did a good job not letting the Huskies get past their half court. Following a miscommunication and bad placement on a corner kick, the Huskies scored first. The Huskies would then score again off an impressive volley kick.
At the end of the half, the Lancers were down 2-0.
“After the first goal they scored on us nobody was motivated,” said team captain Edson Pulido. “We all began to get frustrated with each other, it was an embarrassing game.”
As the second half began the Huskies began to notice they had the win in the bag. The Lancers couldn’t score anything going into the second half as the Huskies began to play more on the defensive side. The Lancers got a couple of shots off but once again, couldn’t capitalize on the opportunities.
This loss now moves the Lanceres to a record of 5-6-1. The Lancers hope to get it together as they prepare to play LA Harbor Tuesday 2:00 pm at Robinson Stadium.
