The Lancers fielded 19 freshman in their 24-man squad, which exposed these 18 year olds against more seasoned, stronger and tactically astute 22 and 23-year-old opposition. According to head coach Edgar Manvelyan, this was the major reason for his team’s displeasing season.
The Seahawks dominated the rest of the game due to unstoppable runs, accurate passing and superior skills. The match-winning goal came with 19 minutes remaining, which took even more sting out of PCC and they weren’t able to retaliate.
Even though PCC fell to a 3-5-1 conference record after the loss, head coach Edgar Manvelyan was satisfied with his team’s performance and is optimistic about the latter part of the season.
The men’s soccer team fired on all cylinders against home team San Diego Mesa College in a dominant 4-2 win on Monday.
