After two winless weeks, the Southern California Sports Club rebounded as the team rediscovered its winning ways in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) with a dominating 3-0 win over Sports Club Corinthians USA last Saturday at the Fairplex.
Midfielder Alex Zaragoza was the first to find the back of the net against Corinthians USA while Colombian forward Roonie Moreno had a brace to score his first two goals in a SoCal SC’s uniform and take home the Man of the Match award.
With the result, SoCal SC moved two steps up on the Southwest Conference standings and now sits fourth with six points – two wins and two losses. Riverside Coras leads with 15, followed by FC Arizona and Orange County FC with 10 each.
SoCal SC’s reaction after two defeats pleased head coach Daniel Musatti, who praised the players’ attitude change and commitment to the game plan.
“After back-to-back defeats, we needed to win and we did it playing dominant soccer. The main difference was in the team’s attitude, as we expected, but we also made some adjustments on the strategy and the players managed to follow our game plan really well, so by getting the three points was reassuring for us, but we need to still improve a lot, as we keep creating the opportunities while we are still failing on our last touch. We are back to training tonight, so we are going to focus the work this week on pressure marking and finishing.”
