Mark Knight had two goals and two assists Tuesday night at La Playa Stadium, leading the sixth-ranked Santa Barbara City College men’s soccer team to a 6-0 rout of Glendale, clinching a tie for the WSC title.

The goals were the 49th and 50th of Knight’s career. Knight, a sophomore forward from England, has 24 goals and 14 assists for 62 points, surpassing his state-leading total of 61 from last year. Flemming Sorenson holds the Vaquero records for single-season goals (38 in 1996) and career goals (53 in 1995-96).

Knight, who has eight goals in his last four matches, is ranked second in state scoring.

It was the eighth straight win and 10th in 11 games for the first-place Vaqueros (15-4, 10-1). They can win the crown outright by beating or tying Moorpark at 7:30 p.m. Friday at La Playa Stadium. SBCC is 14-1 in its last 15 home games.

Waid Ibrahim opened the scoring in the 14th minute on an assist from Knight. Stuart Kirk made it 2-0 in the 31st minute on an assist from Ibrahim.

The Vaqueros put the game away with three goals in a 10-minute span of the second half. Antonio Bernabe tallied a goal in the 58th minute with Knight assisting, and Knight made it 4-0 in the 63rd minute on an assist from Ibrahim. Knight notched his 50th career goal on a penalty kick in the 68th minute.
