BC’s number 10, Jose Lara, pressures East LA player.

The Renegades men’s soccer team played host to East Los Angeles Community College on Sept. 11. With a back and forth game, and a few controversial calls, the Renegades came out with a 2-1 victory to even their record at 2-2.

In the first 15 minutes, the Renegades struck first courtesy, of Edgar Gonzalez striking the ball into the back of the net.

However, that was the only action in the first half and the Renegades entered half-time with a score of 1-0.

The second half of the game continued similarly, with constant runs at the net but no goals achieved.

In a sudden change of pace, East LA pushed back against the Renegade’s lead with a goal off a free kick right outside the box.

The Renegades had an instant answer on their next offensive possession with a goal coming from the right foot of Jose Lara, abruptly ending East LA’s momentum.

In the final minutes, goalkeeper, Armando Alvarez, made a crucial save to stop LA’s last attack, sealing a victory for BC.
