khts_sportsNot only did the College of the Canyons men’s soccer team lose the championship game of the California Community College State Championship, some of the players lost their composure.

Three COC players were issued red cards in the second half as Mt. San Antonio College won, 4-0, to capture its second state championship in a row.

Freshman Luis Fuentes scored a hat trick for Mt. SAC and earned most valuable player honors for the game played at College of the Canyons on Sunday.

Fuentes scored his team’s first three goals. He gave Mt. SAC a 1-0 lead in the 24th minute. He added two more goals in the second half.

With Mt. SAC up 3-0, some of the COC men’s soccer players turned to an aggressive strategy. Jesus Salazar received the first red card in the 72nd minute. Four minutes later, Victor Rodriguez received a red card. Both players were ejected from the game and COC had to play the remaining 14 minutes down two players.

Javier Castro scored the fourth and final goal for Mt. SAC in the 77th minute.

COC received its third red card of the game after Castro’s goal. Jose Reyes was ejected and COC finished the game down three players.

About Connie Jones

Connie and her husband, John, moved to the Santa Clarita Valley almost 30 years ago. Living in Santa Clarita for that long is the direct opposite of Connie’s childhood. She was an Army ‘brat’ who moved every two to three years. Consequently, she has lived in many states and even spent three years in Europe. All three of her kids went to Santa Clarita schools. Connie says the best thing about her job at KHTS is that she is never bored. “If I’m not smiling, Carl is sure to ask why, just before giving me a mind-boggling project.” “KHTS AM-1220 is an integral part of our community and I’m glad to be a part of it. Besides, the DJs will take my request to play Shania Twain’s ‘Still the One’ for my wedding anniversary – gotta love that!”
