A new lineup paid immediate dividends for Central Christian College’s men’s soccer team here Tuesday as it broke out of its offensive doldrums to pound KCAC member Southwestern College, 3-1.
The Tigers, blanked in four straight games, scored in the 15th minute on a goal by Oscar Pizano after some nice passing by David Martinez-Salinas.
Before the half was over, Pizano put Central on the board again after Matthew Massey had come up with a steal and pushed the ball to Gabriel Flores.
Ray Anderson completed the scoring for CCC in the second half off a corner kick by Flores, who had a tremendous day passing.
Josh Paine, in his first start, was a winner between the pipes.
“"Good win for the guys tonight,” CCC coach Aaron Hoxie said. “They worked hard and played well enough to win. There are some areas that need improvement, but it was good to get some goals. It's been a while."
Central, now 2-4, hosts Harris-Stowe University at 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
