AWC men’s soccer wins at PVCC


The No. 15 Ari­zona West­ern men’s soccer team started off the week by get­ting up­set at home by Scotts­dale, but bounced back nicely.

On Thursday, the Mata­dors (51-2 over­all, 5-1-2 Ari­zona Com­mu­nity Col­lege Ath­letic Con­fer­ence) wound up with a 1-0 win against Mesa, de­spite go­ing down to 10 men with the game still score­less.

Then on Satur­day, they went to Phoenix and clob­bered Par­adise Val­ley, 5-1.

Eze­quiel Qui­jada started the match off with a goal in the sev­enth minute, with an as­sist from Ge­naro Vazquez. It was Qui­jada’s sev­enth goal of the year, and he would add two as­sists later in Satur­day’s game.

Jafet Sanchez then scored twice in a row, once in the first half and once in the sec­ond, to bring the score to 3-0.

Jose Ale­man and Beto Gar­cia rounded out the scor­ing for AWC. The loss brings Par­adise Val­ley to a 2-6 record over­all and in con­fer­ence. The Mata­dors have a big game next, a home meet­ing with peren­nial con­fer­ence pow­er­house Yava­pai at 7 p.m. Tues­day.

The Mata­dors saw their 2-0 lead slip away quickly, but struck back even more quickly Satur­day in Phoenix to claim a 3-2 vic­tory against Par­adise Val­ley.

A Cinthya Sa­maniego goal in the 16th minute was the only score for the first two-thirds of the con­test, but then four goals were scored in an 11-minute stretch.

Sa­maniego scored again, this time in the 59th minute, to make it 2-0. Then Bri­anna Sub­veri and Ser­ena Sanchez scored twice for Par­adise Val­ley (5-3 over­all, 5-3 ACCAC) within the 10 min­utes fol­low­ing Sa­maniego’s score.

Only a minute later, it was Chris­tiana Boateng bring­ing the Mata­dors (4-1-3, 4-1-3 ACCAC) back into the lead, and the score stayed like that for the re­main­der of the game.

AWC is at home Tues­day against Cochise at 4:30 p.m.
