Over the Labor Day weekend, the Hartnell Men's Soccer team participated in their annual “Cerritos Tournament” hosting three schools: Cerritos Community College, Irvine Valley College and Fresno City College. The two-day tournament took place here at our campus and all participating colleges are ranked nationally. We are proud to announce that Hartnell College was the Tournament Champion by beating Irvine Valley College 2-1 Sunday, September 3, 2017. Santiago Morales (Alisal H.S.), led the Panthers with a goal and assist in the final game. He netted the game winner in the 87th minute, off an assist from Adrian Chavez (Watsonville H.S.). In addition, Christian Santibanez (Alvarez H.S.) was named Tournament MVP. With this tournament serving as a kickoff for the season, the Soccer Panthers start off with a 1-0-1 record! Hartnell is now ranked #14 in the Nation and #7 in CCCAA. “We reached the championship game Friday by beating #8 in the Nation, Cerritos College, 5-4 in penalty kicks after a scoreless draw,” explained, Men’s Soccer Head Coach, Daniel Ortega. Best of luck to our Panthers in their next game against San Joaquin Delta College! Go Panthers!
