The second half of the men's soccer season in the Arizona JUCO league started off pretty much the same way as the first half for Yavapai College.

A big-time shutout over Scottsdale.

The No. 2-ranked Roughriders, unbeaten through the first half of 2012, opened the second time through the schedule with a 5-0 pasting of Scottsdale Tuesday night at Ken Lindley Field in Prescott. The two clubs hooked up in last month's season opener, which the Roughriders won 7-0.

Yavapai moves to 12-0-0 on the season, and 11-0-0 in the Arizona league. Second-place Arizona Western was idle Tuesday night after getting past Chandler-Gilbert 4-3 on Monday to keep pace with the Roughriders.

Western dropped to No. 11 from No. 6 in this week's NJCAA poll after their loss at Yavapai last week.

On Tuesday night, a diverse attack featured five different scorers for the Roughriders, who led 2-0 at the break and put in three more after halftime. YC, which has scored clusters of goals more than once this season, connected on three goals in a span of 13 minutes in the second half.

Keepers Danny Sellitti and Kieran Coleman-Fry teamed up for the 90-minute shutout; the team's 10th shutout in 12 matches this fall. Yavapai has outscored its opponents 56-3 in 2012.

Tuesday's win also wrapped up Yavapai's season-high four-game home stand. The Roughriders travel to Phoenix College this Thursday, but come right back for an abbreviated two-game home stand against Glendale and Mesa before hitting the road for three straight matches the first week of October.
