The Ohlone College men's soccer team continued its hot streak, extending their winning streak to four games with two wins last week over Monterey Peninsula and Gavilan College, respectively.

The Renegades had their hands full against visiting Monterey Peninsula, who led twice in the game before Ohlone caught fire in the second half. The Lobos kept Ohlone on their toes with their adventurous play, mixing sharp passes and creating scoring opportunities against Renegade keeper Eric Underwood.

Monterey was able to withstand an early Ohlone assault on goal and drew first blood when a defensive breakdown allowed Zach Ostarello to find the net.

Ohlone was able to absorb a lot of offensive pressure from the Lobos, until Danny Ulloa leveled the match when he capitalized on a Monterey mis-kick and scored from the right wing.

The Renegades were forced to fight back again in the second half after Monterey's Galen Knobbe was able to get by Ohlone's back line and deposit the ball into the net for a 2-1 lead. But from that point, Ohlone's defense tightened up, and George Mayer converted two crosses into Renegades goals to give the Renegades the 3-2 win.

"We are pleased that we can come back from a deficit," said Ohlone coach Jan Nordmo. "We now know that this is within our ability. Going forward, this certainly helps our confidence as a team."

Mayer's campaign as Ohlone's top gun continued in the Renegades' next game, a 2-1 win at Gavilan College in which Mayer assisted on both Ohlone goals, which were scored by Jarod Fluke and David Kulhanek. At week's end, Ohlone is 5-2 in early season play.
