Bear Cubs soccer embarrasses Rams

Tom Miller, Staff Writer

The Santa Rosa Junior College Bear Cubs saved their best for the opening of league play by dominating the San Francisco City College Rams 3-0 at home Friday Sept. 14.

The Bear Cubs have started slow at times this season, but not against the Rams.

At the 10 minute mark Kevin Rojas used a header to give Santa Rosa a 1-0 lead.

“I think that our 4-4-2 matched up well with theirs,” said coach Marty Kinahan.

In the second half, Santa Rosa played even better.

Just outside of the goalies box, the SRJC earned a free kick. Derek Neidlinger fired a ball into the net for a 2-0 lead.

With just 6 minutes left, Santa Rosa converted on a free kick to make the final score 3-0.

“I thought that Javy Aguilar had a really good second half,” added Kinahan.
