Ohlone College men's soccer team saw their winning streak come to an end, but not before they'd extended it to four games with a 3-1 road win over the Gavilan Rams in Gilroy on Tuesday (September 29).

A strong wind at Ohlone's backs helped the Renegade offense keep the pressure on, controlling the ball on the Rams' side of the field for most of the first 45 minutes. Ohlone capitalized with three, first-half goals, the first coming in the 14th minute, when forward Daniel Galloway scored after being the recipient of a fortunate bounce off a left-sided corner kick by George Mayer II; Ohlone's second goal came on a Mayer boot from the right corner which found Galloway's head and then the Gavilan net. It was Galloway's eighth goal of the season.

Two minutes later, in the 43rd minute of the half, the potent Mayer-Galloway combo connected again, but this time in reverse order. Renegades back Sean Randall launched a quick throw-in to Galloway at the left corner of the box. Galloway flicked the ball to Mayer, who clipped it over the on-coming Gavilan keeper into the right side of the net.

The second half found Ohlone facing the strong wind, but the Rams could only manage to score one goal.

The Renegades' winning streak came to an end on their home field, losing 3-0 to Evergreen. Ohlone was unable to score on seven, first-half shots on goal, being kept at bay by Evergreen's goalkeeper Jonathan Arellano. Evergreen broke the 0-0 halftime tie with three, second-half scores by Jose Ramirez, Alejandro Duarte and Leo Baltizar.

The loss was Ohlone's first in the Coast South Division. The Renegades are 2-1 in the Conference and 6-3 overall.
