Lady Roadrunners, No. 7 Roadrunners to Host Regional Quarterfinals
The Angelina College Lady Roadrunners and the No. 7 Roadrunners finished off their regular seasons this past week, and both teams are heading into the postseason with a full head of steam.
The Lady ‘Runners blasted Southmost College on Friday, winning 8-0 behind three goals each from Marlen Flores and Camilla Bedin. Estephany Aguilar and Suzy Palos also scored in the win.
Flores’ three goals helped her establish a new program record for goals in a season with 28. In addition, Ana Rendon broke the program record for assists in a single match with five.
Right after the ladies’ match on Friday, the No. 7 Roadrunners hammered Southmost College by an 11-0 final. Omar Mora scored five goals, setting a new program record for goals in a match.
Filliph Kamfjord and Kaito Ueki each added a pair of goals, and Eric Ortiz and Christian Delgado chipped in with a goal each.
The two AC teams closed out their regular seasons at Jacksonville College on Tuesday. The Lady Roadrunners took a 3-1 win over the Lady Jaguars, with Flores, Rendon and Haidee Benitez finding the back of the net.
The ‘Runners then won their sixth straight match with a 4-0 shutout over the Jaguars – giving the AC men 21 goals in their last three matches.
The Roadrunners’ (10-0-2) win vaulted them into the first seed in all of Region XIV, having completed the season without a loss. The Lady Roadrunners (7-3-1) jumped over Jacksonville College for second place in the conference’s South Zone.
Now, because of those big finishes, both AC teams will open the postseason at home.
