Yavapai soccer team rallies late for win
The Daily Courier

The Yavapai College men's soccer team found itself in unfamiliar territory Saturday night, then things looked very familiar.

The Chandler-Gilbert Coyotes, who have been hanging around the middle of the ACCAC pack most of the fall season, led the nation's No. 2-ranked Roughriders 1-0 at halftime in Chandler, forcing the seven-time national champions to play catch-up after the break.

They did.

Six minutes after halftime, Yavapai's sophomore attacker Kyle Morris (Hartlepool, England) ended the offensive drought and beat Chandler-Gilbert keeper Ryan Duran off an assist from Raul Cardona.

Morris' goal ignited the offense. In the final two minutes of regulation, Alex Harlley and Jonathan Grant connected late.

The Roughriders have gone 17 straight matches without being shut out. The last time a YC club failed to score in a match was last year's 2-0 playoff loss to Pima, which ended their 2011 season.

With second-place Arizona Western idle Saturday, the Roughriders widened their lead atop the ACCAC to nine points, 45-36. Phoenix beat South Mountain 5-3 on Saturday to jump to third place.

Last-place South Mountain (0-15) hosts Yavapai this Tuesday for a matinee match at 3 p.m. That ends the Roughriders' season-long three-game road swing.

YC returns home Thursday to take on Paradise Valley (6 p.m.) at Ken Lindley Field in Prescott.
