Wolverins Post Clean Sheet in Return Home

The San Bernardino Valley College men's soccer team completed two of the three goals it had set for itself before Friday's 1-0 victory over Citrus College.

Win? Check. Post a clean sheet? Check. Finish their chances? That one left coach Josh Brown shaking his head after the game.

The Wolverines fired 29 shots toward the Citrus goal - only 11 of which were on frame - as they dominated the run of play against the winless Owls, who played the last 74 minutes down a man after Reymundo Orrosquieta was sent off in the 16th minute. But build-up after build-up that ended without a goal - or even a good opportunity - left the coaching staff and team knowing they could have netted at least two or three more goals on the afternoon.

SBVC scored its only goal early. Jaden Vandenberg chased down a ball on the left wing side and went to the end line. He crossed the ball across the front, and Emmanuel Garcia slid in and redirected the ball into the near post for the 1-0 lead.

But after Orrosquieta was sent off, the Wolverines could not generate more quality chances. Goalie Thomas Garcia made 10 stops to keep it a 1-0 game, as he also got help from the posts on a couple of other shots.

Meanwhile the SBVC defense was limiting chances for the Owls. Arturo Magana made four saves for the Wolverines, as he notched his fourth win of the season.
