Men’s Soccer: SBCC Clinches Tie for WSC Title

The Vaqueros' Mark Knight nets his 50th career goal in a 6-0 rout of Glendale.

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.
Danny Molineaux completed the scoring in the 87th minute with Craig Davies providing the assist.

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

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!
