Men’s varsity soccer has dominated at home all season, and the game against Eldorado on Thursday, Oct. 22 was no exception. The Cougars crushed the Sun Devils 4-1.

“I really felt like we had this game. It was definitely a team effort. As soon as we stepped foot on the field in those first minutes, I knew we were going to win,” Preston Judd, junior, said.

With an assist from Michael Schwob, senior, Judd scored first to put the Cougars in the lead 1-0.

The Cougs ended the first half 2-0 after a goal by Steven Kale, senior.

Kale scored another goal to extend Coronado’s lead to 3-0. Eldorado later scored a goal in an attempt to make up some ground.

With 25 minutes left on the clock the Cougars lost their starting left back, Oliver Meza, junior, with a hamstring injury. Meza had to sit out for the rest of the game.

John Lynam, sophomore, brought in the last score of the game to secure 4-1 win.

“I feel like I played pretty good. I passed pretty well and scored a goal. Although I definitely think I could have finished more opportunities,” Lynam said.

With soccer season drawing to a close, the Cougar’s stand second in the division with a record of 8-5-2 behind Green Valley. They will next meet the Gators at home on 3 p.m. Monday, Oct. 26. With Coronado’s outstanding at-home record and the Gator’s consistency on the field, the matchup will be one for the books.
