  • Game Day: Tuesday, August 31, 2010
  • Ohlone of Coast South Division, Non-Conference Match
  • Shasta @ Ohlone
  • Ohlone 2, Shasta 1

Coming off a stinger of a loss on Friday where the Renegades suffered the heat and strain of a long trip against West Hills College and a 4-2 loss, the Renegades needed an early lead and a solid win today if they were to get on track to equal last year’s efforts.

The shots came plenty with four hits on the post over the course of the match. Captain George Mayer II (sophomore) opened the floodgate of shots early on testing the Shasta keeper to near post of the attacking right side. The same scenario played out in Lemoore on Friday, but this time the Ohlone men would find joy and get the first goal of the game and the third of an early season.

The goal was set off by a familiar pattern for Ohlone, a long throw from Mario Esqueda (freshman) was tipped on by the head of Carlos Zarate (Freshman) to the far post where last year’s freshman sensation Geoge Mayer hit is second goal of young season.

Freshman keeper for Ohlone Elmer Ceja was called to action early and forced to make three saves with brilliant tips over the net, one after facing a direct free kick from atop the penalty box.

Near the end of the first half, Jose Ulloa (sophomore) launched a volley from near midfield that caught a generous wind shear throwing the keeper onto his heels but not before helping the ball over the goal line for the fourth goal of Ohlone’s new season and the second of the match.

Although Ohlone were to lead the majority of the match, Shasta’s Seiya Tshushima was busy about the midfield attempting to slice diagonals through the Ohlone defense anchored by Dustin Richards (sophomore) and Ricardo Martinez (freshman).

The visiting Knights became interested in staging a comeback after a late goal developed on a miscommunication error between Richards and keeper Ceja. The spark of Shasta retaliation resulted when Marcial Lawson snuck through the two Ohlone players off his own keeper’s punt and plugged away the life line to Shasta.

The busy midfield of Ohlone with two new freshman David Kulhanek and Carlos Contreras was enough to deny the Shasta Knights and allow the Ohlone lead and kept the win in the books for the Renegades.
