OCC men's soccer: Pirates easily handle Santiago Canyon

October 25, 2000

COSTA MESA - With a dominating performance, the Orange Coast

College men's soccer team outshot Santiago Canyon, 31-9, and cruised to a

4-0 Orange Empire Conference victory Tuesday.

Billy Pena started the scoring for the Pirates (11-3-4, 7-2-1 in the

OEC), taking one step and then firing a shot past Hawk goalie Nick Adams

after receiving a pass from Josh Miller on the left side about 20 yards

out in the 20th minute.


OCC extended its lead in the second half when Jesus Cervantes scored.

After Adams came out to make a save but couldn't hold on to the ball,

Cervantes sent the ball into an empty net in the 55th minute.

One minute later, Geno Vitale-Sansosti scored on a breakaway, booming

a shot off Adams' chest and then controlling the loose ball and following

up for the Pirates' third goal.

Cervantes helped close the scoring in the 88th minute, drawing Adams

out of the goal on a breakaway, then dishing the ball to Mike Carvin, who

easily put the ball in the open net.
