The Renegades put on an offensive show in their home game against the Giants of the Sequoias on Sept. 18, with a 4-2 win, extending their winning streak to four games.

The Renegades struck early and more than once in the first half with goals by Edgar Gonzalez and Jorge Pimentel within the first twenty-three minutes of gameplay. With those two scores the Renegades went into the half up 2-0.

Coming out of the half the Renegades picked up right where they left off with a goal three minutes into the second half courtesy of Jose Lara. Moments later Sequoias scores an own goal and that extended the Renegade lead to 4-0 with thirty minutes left to play.

Sequoias ended up scoring two goals, in what was essentially garbage time, which lead to the end of the game and our final score.

“We should have kept the shutout but they made scrappy plays at the end of the game to get those two goals on us,” said Head Coach Vayron Martinez speaking on the teams defensive effort.

Coach also stated that the team is just taking it one game at a time so they aren’t worried about the winning streak, only concerned with being competitive and getting better each day.
