The Panther men opened their season Saturday at Citrus, going 1-1 including a win over the host Owls. Wednesday the Panthers hosted Division III Caltech falling 11-10 after a hot 2nd half of play. At the half, Chaffey lead Tech 6-4 but five goals by the Beavers in the 3rd gave them a one-point lead that eventually took down the Chaffey squad. With six goals, freshman Adrian Trejo (Beaumont HS) lead the Panther offense also grabbing three steals from the Beaver charge. Ethan Hunsaker was on goal with four saves.
"We've made great strides getting this freshman team up to speed," commented Head Coach Carlson. "We open the SCC season next week at Rio Hondo and we're looking to keep the guys moving forward and bringing home the win." The Panther men are on the road until mid-October and open the SCC season the 25th at Rio Hondo.
