The Pasadena City College men's soccer team showed some of the quick-strike offensive prowess that head coach Gerry Mora said his Lancers would show this season in a sterling, 4-0 victory at Moorpark on Friday. Both Favian Esparza and Carlos Navarro scored a goal and an assist as PCC improved to 1-1.
It was fast and furious for PCC in the first half. In the 15th minute, Emmanuel Becerra set a short pass to Jason Bautista who delivered it to Esparza for a set piece goal. In the 24th minute, Navarro sent a perfect cross to Ernesto Angulo, who scored his second goal in as many games for a 2-0 PCC advantage. Two minutes later, Mario Urbina stole a pass deep in Moorpark's zone and fed Navarro for a close range score. PCC scored three goals in a span of 11 minutes.
Three minutes into the second half, the Lancers completed the game's scoring as Esparza sent a long ball to a speedy Asher Smith, who fired a shot in the corner of the net.
PCC makes its home debut on its new Robinson Stadium artificial turf surface on Tuesday, Sept. 3 in a 2 p.m. kickoff against Long Beach City College.
