Fullerton stopped a three-game losing streak with a 3-0 victory over Cerritos in a nonconference men’s soccer game Tuesday at Cerritos.

Former Esperanza star Marc Rodieck, The Times Orange County player of the year last season, increased his team-leading goals to seven by breaking a scoreless tie in the 25th minute, and another goal in the 41st minute. Ben Whieldon closed out the scoring in the second half for Fullerton (4-4).
