We have players that work really hard and compete everyday. They put in the effort to improve their game and build solid team relationships.”

In the first game of two, Moorpark faced off in an away conference game against Oxnard College on Oct. 15.

Head Coach Jake Gwin had this to say on the teams most recent losses, “There were some individual errors in both technique and decision making which lead to the goals. In addition, we missed several quality goal-scoring opportunities that would have kept us in the game. At the end of the day, it comes down to those moments that you either capitalize on, or you don’t,” expressed Gwin. “Unfortunately, this year, we just don’t have the offensive pop to bury our opportunities with regularity. But the team is working hard together, staying positive, and working hard to improve on all the little things that can be the difference.”
