Orange Coast College closed out its fourth consecutive conference championship by beating Cypress, 9-0, in an Orange Empire Conference men’s soccer game Tuesday at Cypress.
Mak Mitchell scored four goals and Darin Courter scored two for Orange Coast (11-4-7, 8-1-3), which finished conference play with 17 points. OCC currently has a three-point lead over second-place Irvine Valley, which was idle Tuesday and concludes the regular season against Rancho Santiago Friday.
In another Orange Empire Conference men’s soccer game:
Rancho Santiago vs. Fullerton--The game was suspended late in the first half because of arguing between the Rancho Santiago coaching staff and officials working the game.
There was no score when the game was called by referee Nick Dodge with two minutes left in the half.
T. Mark Johnson, the Orange Empire Conference commissioner, is expected to rule later this week whether or not Fullerton will be awarded a forfeit victory or if the game will be resumed.
