Knights Sports RoundupThe San Diego City College Knights cross country teams hosted the Coach Downey Classic on Sept. 28 at Morley Field, where the women’s team finished second overall.

The City College women’s team had two runners finish in the top 10 overall. Freshman Dafne Perez finished second with a 20:22 time while Cesia Hernandez’ 22:16 time was good for an eighth place finish.

“What stood out about our second place finish this past Friday is also emblematic of this year’s team strength — commitment,” head coach Marco Anzures said in an email. “Our group has committed to using each race to hone their skills and focus on the big picture, making it to the state meet!”

The next meet for the women’s cross country team is Oct. 12 at Morley Field. The men will race Oct. 5 at the Brubaker Invitational at the Irvine Regional Park.

Men’s soccer

The men’s soccer team needed a late penalty kick to secure a 3-3 draw against College of the Desert on Sept. 28. Dalton Kinney converted the late penalty kick into the equalizing goal, earning the team a draw in an otherwise back-and-forth game.

The Knights improved their record to 4-3-2 overall, and 2-2-2 in the PCAC.

Goalkeeper Jacob Odenkirk had five saves in this game. Rafael Lopez, one of the team’s leading goal scorers, was able to contribute to the draw with an early goal. On Sept. 25, Lopez got two goals that led City College to a 3-1 win at home against Palomar College.

The Knights’ next game is Oct. 5 at home against Imperial Valley at 3 p.m.
