Roughriders to close home soccer regular season in Prescott Valley Saturday
Cheryl Hartz
News Editor

The nation's No. 2-ranked Yavapai College Roughriders have experienced just one small blip on their soccer radar screen this season - a 2-1 loss at Phoenix College - for a 17-0-1 overall record.

With a road game last night, after the Tribune's press time, and a home match tomorrow at Prescott's Ken Lindley Field, the 'Riders could be 19-0-1 by Saturday, when they play their final regular season home game at the Prescott Valley Amphitheater in Mountain Valley Park. (Game time for Thursday and Saturday is 6 p.m.)

A win over the Pima Aztecs Saturday will keep the Roughrider soccer program, head coach Mike Pantalione and associate coach Hugh Bell undefeated in 45 games in Prescott Valley.

All four games this season at the Amphitheater have been shutout victories, 3-0 over Phoenix, 3-0 over Chandler-Gilbert, 2-0 over Dakota County, Minn., and 2-0 over Glendale. The Roughriders own seven more shutouts, including a 10-0 blowout over South Mountain in Prescott, while allowing only two teams to score two goals - Gateway (11-2 win), and Phoenix in the 2-1 loss.

They allowed opponents just one goal apiece in their five remaining victories this season.

The Roughriders stand at the top of the ACCAC, and after the regular season closer in Yuma on Oct. 18, will host the Region One playoff at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25, at the Prescott Valley Amphitheater.

Since the program's inception in 1989, Yavapai soccer (513-41-18 all-time record) has garnered 67 conference, region, district and national titles, including seven national championships.
