The Santa Rosa Junior College Bear Cubs’ single goal was enough to take down Napa Valley College 1-0 Tuesday night to earn their first home victory at Bailey Field.

The game was a standoff until the 72nd minute when sophomore Juan Hernandez fought his way through the defense and rifled the Bear Cubs’ lone goal through the net.

“With Juan you can give him the ball and he converts,” said Assistant Coach Matt Brabetz. “He has not been training for a while because of an injury; for him to score a goal in the game should give him a big boost of confidence.”

The team believes this win can be a momentum builder going forward.

“The most important part about today is that we grinded through this game and came up with a victory,” said sophomore defender Ian Slaughter. “We have had many of these scrappy back and forth games this season and to pull this one out this time is huge for us.”

Freshmen midfielder Adrian Garcia, had a scare late in the game when he came down with a leg injury.

“He had a little tweaked ankle and he should be fine,” Brabetz said.

SRJC hopes to keep this momentum riding against De Anza College at 2:30 p.m. Friday in Cupertino.
