GLENDORA, CA — The Huskies won two games against El Camino College, an 8-1 win in the Citrus College Tournament today and a 16-4 victory in South Coast Conference play on Oct. 14 in Torrance.

Also on the Citrus Tournament, ELAC, 4-17 overall and 2-4 in the SCC, lost 12-2 to San Diego Miramar College (7-12) and 11-2 to host Citrus (16-5).

The Huskies had a chance for another win against Santa Monica College (4-12), who is dead even on paper with ELAC, but the Corsairs didn’t have enough players to sport a whole team. The Corsairs were however, not charged with a forfeit loss.

Against El Camino (0-17, 0-5) at Citrus, ELAC’s passing game resulted in four Huskies scoring goals. Freshman Michelle Delgado (Montebello HS) led the Husky pack with three goals, followed by sophomore Brandy Macias (Bell Gardens) and freshman Alejandra Mendoza (South Gate) with two goals each.

Sophomore Yvonne Young (Mark Keppel) added a goal for ELAC. She had three assists as did freshman Stephanie Perez.

In SCC play, ELAC controlled the tempo of the 16-4 win on both offense and defense. Freshman Reanna Calvaruzo (Whittier) led the ELAC attack with five goals and two assists.

Young and Mendoza had three goals each with Young grabbing five steals. Adding two goals and three assists each were Delgado and Macias. Freshman Julia Soto (Garfield) scored the other Husky goal and had two steals.

Macias leads the Huskies with 24 goals scored this season and 32 steals. Young has 15 assists and leads ELAC on defense with 71 steals. Mendoza has scored 21 goals.

The Huskies are back in action on Wednesday, Oct. 28 in their final home game of the season against Cerritos College (5-12 and 2-3) with a 3 p.m. start. The winner will have a lock on fifth place in the SCC standings. It is the final regular season SCC game for both teams.

ELAC competes at the Pasadena City College Tournament on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 30/31 and end its season on Nov. 6/7 in the SCC Tournament Championships at Cerritos College.
