The Coyotes Score Five Out of Eight Chances
The No. 14 Coyotes turned a 1-0 haltime lead into an explosive second half that saw them defeat Notre Dame de Namur 5-0 on Saturday.
Pedro Arellano scored the goal in the 43rd minute on an assist from Carlos Esparza. The teams went to the half at that score, but just two minutes into the second half Omari Mark scored on an assist from Arellano.
Brandon Sangbarani scored in the 55th minute with an assist from Carlos Lira. Jonathan Garcia scored again in the 62nd minute and Kevin Aguilar put in the final goal in the 79th minute with an assist from Jesus Ortega.
“We were pretty fortunate to go into the half up 1-0 after a pretty frustrating half,” head coach Darren Leslie said. “We addressed a couple things at halftime and the team responded with two quick goals to settle the nerves. It probably wasn’t our cleanest all-around performance, but we made up for some poor finishing on Thursday with some clinical finishing today.”
The Yotes were extremely effective, putting five of their eight shots on goal in the net. Jacob Huber made five saves and combined with Carlos Barrera to earn the shutout in goal.
The Yotes begin conference play on Thursday traveling to Cal Poly Pomona at 7 pm. Live links are on CSUSBathletics.com.
