SPARTANS DISMANTLE ELAC (Sept 17, 2014)

The Spartans opened the 2014 campaign with close matches to start the year against an undefeated Cypress College team, San Bernardino Valley College (4-2-1) and San Francisco City College who is a traditional state power. In their fourth game of the year the Spartans played like an experience team as they out played a very talented East Los Angeles College team. The final score was 3-1 with goals from Eddie Guerra (2) and Austin Genevay (1). Sergio Lopez and Argenis Ramos logged assists. Goalie Angel Ruiz played another stellar game with six saves, some of which were in heavy rain with a wet and slippery ball.
