Not only was it hot outside, but the Bears showed just how hot they were, winning there second game in a row! The bears defeated the Eagles, 2-0, in a 90 minute battle. Pedro Mendoza was great for the Bears notching his third goal in just two games! Center Back Jose Perez scored on a absolute gem-of-a-shot off of a free kick. He landed one in the top left corner of the goal to seal the victory, late in the second half. Javier Lopez etched his name in the record books as the goalkeeper who helped to record the first shutout in school history. Javier came up with some big saves today to help seal their fate. Defensively, the entire defense was huge for the Bears, it was the first shutout for the Bears this season, so defense obviously played a huge part. "Improving from our last game where we recorded our first win was our target. Our boys gave a fantastic effort on defense which was the difference in the game", says Coach Shelton. The Bears will look to continue their hot streak as they face Providence Christian College on the road, October 17th. The game is scheduled to kick-off at 3:00 p.m. Gooo Bears!
