The City College men’s Vaqueros soccer team suffered their first regular-season loss in three years against Taft College Friday night.

The score was 1-0, their first loss in 28 regular-season games.

“It was a hard game since Taft won the final game last year,” head coach John Sisterson said. “This is definitely the best team they’ve played, but they are working hard. The game started quickly with multiple fowls and an unforgiving opponent. It was a game full of illegal moves and a lot of aggression from both teams.”

“The refs didn’t call anything and when they did call something it was against us,” Mariah Robinson, a Vaqueros fan said as she shivered on the cold bleachers with a cup of coffee in her hands.

Standing at only 5’4, number 2 Ameyawu Muntari helped lead the team until the clock ran down.

“Watch out for him,” said Christy Gates-Bowes, assistant coach, about Muntari. “He has some fire in his step.”

The men were able to hold their ground until the end of the game when Taft scored a goal despite goalie Lukas Schuh’s best efforts to save it.

Another strong player on the field was number 9, Kevin Kwizer, a returning forward on the team who had multiple shots on goal that were assisted by number 33, Juan Zarate, a freshman midfielder who has started every game this season so far. The Vaqueros kept putting in effort until the last second despite the score.

The team is looking for redemption in their next game against Canyons College Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 5 p.m.
