Coach Jan Nordmo's Ohlone men's soccer team got back on a roll after going winless the previous week, winning twice in two contests over visiting Gavilan College (by a 4-1 score) and Skyline (3-1 in a road game).

With the Renegades' leading offensive player George Mayer II seeing limited playing time due to an injury sustained against Evergreen, Carlos Contreras picked up the slack in a big way against Gavilan, with a whopping four goals. He netted Ohlone's first in the third minute of the game on a rebound goal off a fumbled save by Gavilan's keeper. Fifteen minutes later, Contreras was visiting the Gavilan goal again. This time he was dragging two defenders with him, before he niftily stopped at the top of the goal box, and scooped the ball over the head of the goalie.

Contreras scored once more in the first half off an assist by David Kulhanek. After Gavilan got on the scoreboard in minute 78, Contreras capped the scoring by powering the ball past goalie Christian Maravilla.

Later in the week against Skyline, it was again Contreras who did the damage, first by tying the game shortly before the half. The Renegades benefitted from a Skyline own goal to take the lead early in the second half, and Contreras nailed a penalty kick in the 66th minute to put the game out of reach. At week's end, Ohlone stood at 8-4-1 overall, 3-1-1 in the Coast South.
