The 13th-ranked Golden Eagles men's soccer team
continued dominating the region by getting a 3-0 win over the 10th ranked Otero Jr. College Rattlers on Oct. 19 and a 6-0 win over Trinidad State Jr. College on Oct. 20 at LCCC. The Golden Eagles went undefeated in conference play and are set to host the Region IX tournament on October 26-27.
In their first meeting on Sept. 29, the Rattlers tied the game in the last few minutes. The Golden Eagles didn’t want a repeat of that game.

In the 64th minute of the second half, Neri passed the ball to a sprinting Dewey Rodgers, who placed the ball past the OJC keeper. In the 75th minute, Jalen Willett crossed the ball to Neri, who shot the ball passed the Otero goalie for the final goal of the match.
