Ohlone Men Finally Break Through With Win

Friday, October 24, 2008.

Santa Clara, CA – Ohlone men’s traveled to Santa Clara Friday to take on the Mission College Saints. The Renegades won 3 – 0 with (Daniel Zermino (Union City Ca, James Logan High) scoring his first career game winning goal in the 40th minute. Zermino hit his shot from 18 out into the lower left hand corner from a ball played into him by Adam Hernandez (Fremont, CA Kennedy High) who earned his 3rd point of the season with the assist.

It did not take long for Ohlone to strike their second goal with Zermino providing the assist this time when he took a shot from 18 out that rebounded off of the keeper and Ivan Espinoza (Union City Ca, James Logan High) latched on to the rebound and put it home in the 42nd minute and Ohlone took a 2 – 0 lead into half time.

After the half Ohlone continued to pummel the Saints net but did not get their final goal until the 86th minute when Cher Yang (Stockton, CA Franklin High School) found Daniel Galloway (Fremont, CA Irvington High School) on a fast break and Galloway hit a rocked off the cross bar that ricochet into the back of the net.

Renegades keeper Iman Aghel (Mashad, Iran Allamah High School) made 7 saves in the match including a spectacular reaction save that sent him flying backward on a shot from 10 yards out to preserve the shutout.

Ohlone coach Don Williams said of the win “I am proud of the boys for getting their first win but when I came into this program I said it was never about wins and losses. I want the men to play well, to use the techniques and tactics that I teach them that will serve them well at the next level and to play together as a team”

“We played pretty well outshooting them 26 – 7 but honestly we should have done even better, I have seen us play much, much better than we did today, I just want us to learn to play hard and the right way for 90 minutes against every team” Coach Williams said.

Ohlone takes on Monterey College at home Tuesday.
