The Bakersfield College Men’s Soccer team lost their game on Oct. 13 2-1. The Renegade team, which had just taken their first win this season on Oct. 10 against Victor Valley College, added another loss, this time to Citrus College.

The first half of the game saw both teams grabbing and pulling at each other’s uniforms, with one player from Citrus getting yellow carded, in what seemed a tense and desperate bid to take the lead.

The first goal of the game was made by Citrus. The game’s second goal was achieved by BC, and the third and final goal of the night was scored in the second half by Citrus.

This cemented Citrus’s victory and started the team on a two-win streak with Bakersfield College, who received their ninth loss of the season. Three of the Renegade’s games this season have resulted in a tied score.

The BC Men’s Soccer team will face off with Antelope Valley College on Oct. 27 at 12:30 p.m. at the Memorial Stadium for a home game.
