SBCC Men’s Soccer Shows Explosiveness in 3-1 Win

Celso Lagunas had two goals and an assist on Tuesday and Ameyawu Muntari added a goal and two assists as SBCC remained unbeaten with a 3-2 men’s soccer victory at Chaffey.

The Vaqueros, ranked No. 4 in the state, improved to 5-0 and they’re one of five unbeaten teams in the state. The Vaqueros are 21-0-6 in their last 27 regular-season games.

Lagunas, a sophomore forward from Santa Barbara High, and Muntari, a sophomore midfielder from Ghana, got on the board quickly with Muntari feeding Lagunas for a goal just 75 seconds into the game.

The Panthers (3-2-2) tied it 1-1 on a goal in the 35th minute.

Lagunas struck again in the 52nd minute on a set-up from Muntari. In the 75th minute, Muntari took a pass from Lagunas and scored the eventual game-winner to make it 3-1.

“We started very positively by scoring in the second minute,” stated SBCC coach John Sisterson. “We let them back in it but we always looked like we were capable of scoring more goals. Andrew Angarano had a great game on defense and he was the ‘Man of the Match.’ “

The Vaqueros will host top-ranked Taft (5-1-1) on Friday at 7:30 p.m. in La Playa Stadium. The Vaqueros are unbeaten in their last 14 home games (12-0-2). Taft lost its first game on Tuesday at No. 3 Cerritos, 1-0.

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!
