WSC-leading Vaqs notch seventh-straight

Craig Davies had a goal and an assist Friday night, leading 11th-ranked SBCC to a 3-0 men’s soccer win over Citrus at La Playa Stadium.

The victory was the seventh straight and ninth in 10 games for the Vaqueros (14-4, 9-1), who have a seven-point lead over Moorpark (6-2-2) with four games left in the WSC race. Citrus (6-5-4, 3-3-3) is the last team to beat the the Vaqueros, handing them their only conference loss on Oct. 7.

“It’s always good to beat a team that you lost to,” said Davies, whose free kick set up the Vaqueros’ first score, a header by Beville Rose in the 44th minute. “We could have scored a few more goals.”

Davies made it 2-0 in the 65th minute on a blast to the upper corner from 35 yards in the 65th minute. Stuart Kirk completed the scoring in the 84th minute after Mark Knight’s shot bounced off the goalie’s hands.

SBCC averages 3.5 goals per game and has more goals (64) than any team in the state.

“We had to win tonight,” said Vaquero coach John Sisterson. “We needed to keep the ball rolling. It could have been 5-0 if Waid (Ibrahim) had made a couple of those near-misses.”

The Vaqueros are 13-1 in their last 14 home games.

SBCC continues its five-game homestand on Tuesday against Glendale and Friday vs. Moorpark. Both games kick off at 7:30 p.m.
