Team News, 2008 Season - Ohlone Renegades Men's Soccer
Renegades win another in best outing yet!
Thursday, October 30, 2008.
Livermore, CA – The Renegade men traveled to Livermore to play Las Positas Thursday for a rain soaked match and walked away the victors with a 2 – nil win. The match was makeup vs. the Hawks, as the first scheduled outing was postponed due to a power outage earlier in the season. Daniel Zermino (Union City Ca, James Logan High) again provided the offensive fireworks for Ohlone assisting Daniel Galloway (Fremont, CA Irvington High School) who picked up his first career game winning goal in the 62nd minute. Galloway picked up a through ball by Zermino and broke away 1 v 1 against the Hawks keeper, then calmly slotted the ball underneath the on-rushing keeper from 16 yards out.
The match was a hotly contested midfield battle but Zermino latched onto a long ball by Wayne Jin (Fremont, CA Washington High School) and hit a rocket at the Las Positas net minder, fortunately for the renegades the rain caused the ball to slip through the keepers hands and into the net for the insurance goal the Renegades so badly wanted and deserved as Ohlone out shot Las Positas 10 – 2 in the match.
Renegades keeper Iman Aghel (Mashad, Iran Allamah High School) made 2 saves in the match including a lovely flying save to his upper left on a shot from 15 yards out to earn his second shutout of the season.
When asked about the win Ohlone coach Don Williams stated “Even more important than getting a another win this is the first match where we have put together 90 minutes of defending and attacking the way that I have trained them.” “I could not have asked anyone to play any better than they did today, this is the performance I have been waiting all season for the boys to unleash, I always knew they had it in them, I never stopped believing in them.”
Las Positas will surely be looking for a payback for the loss when they visit Ohlone on Tuesday for a 4pm kickoff.
