By Lilianna Marquez

The men’s soccer team finished the regular season with a tie versus the Cerritos College Falcons last week at Weingart Stadium with a score of 1-1 and a late goal by Danny Suarez. With this result, the Huskies not only secured a place in the playoffs, but also will be able to host their first round game which will be on November 19.

The Huskies are now waiting for the Southern California Seeding Meeting which will take place at Fullerton College on Tuesday at 11 a.m. to know the selection and seeding of the teams. ELAC also finished the second half of conference play unbeaten with three victories and four ties.

The Huskies finished regular season with an overall record of 11-4-6 and a conference record of 6-2-6. They are third place in the South Coast Conference standings and 10th place statewide.

ELAC’s forward Danny Suarez ended the regular season as the top scorer for the Huskies with 10 goals, followed by forward Kevin Gomez with eight and defender Galo Moreno with six. Together, these three players scored 24 goals, which are half of the total the Huskies were able to score during regular season.

ELAC’s goalkeeper Juan Escobar was again a key player for the Huskies as he displayed a great performance and prevented the Falcons from scoring more goals and obtaining a victory. Escobar who played 1800 minutes during regular season, has a total of 21 goals against and 121 saves.
