SBCC Soccer: Vaqueros Shut Down, Out By No. 8 Fresno City

After scoring 13 goals in two wins last week, the SBCC men's team loses 4-0 and falls to 4-2.

After scoring 13 goals in two wins last week, the Santa Barbara City College men’s soccer team was shut out 4-0 by Fresno City College in a nonconference game Tuesday.

The Rams, ranked No. 8 in California, improved to 5-1-3. The Vaqueros fell to 4-2.

Fresno took a 3-0 lead with two late goals in the first half on a warm day with temperatures in triple digits. SBCC’s Mark Knight missed a penalty kick with his team trailing 1-0 in the 27th minute. Earlier in the day, the Vaqueros moved into the 10th spot nationally in the NSCAA/adidas poll.

“We had opportunities, but I was very disappointed with the attitude of our players,” Vaquero coach John Sisterson said. “They thought they could just come up here and get a win. It’s a long way to come and then have the players not perform.”

SBCC returns home to take on Rio Hondo College at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Dave Loveton is Santa Barbara City College‘s sports information specialist.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
