(Walnut CA) College of the Desert (5-3-2) struck first in the 10th minute of a non-conference match against host Mt. SAC (5-1) on Tuesday, but it was the Mounties who struck often after that on their way to a 5-1 victory.

Trailing 1-0, Mt. SAC's Anthony Vargas scored an unassisted goal in the 24th minute to tie the score. Gabriel Arredondo added another in the 37th minute on an assist from Paul Iniguez to give the Mounties a 2-1 advantage at the break.

In the second half, Mt. SAC added three scores, one from Jason Garcia in the 62nd minute (Edward Castro assist), another by Fabian Hernandez in the 73rd minute (Andre Ramos assist), and the final by Andrew Vazquez in the 89th minute (Sean Romo assist).

The Mounties held the Roadrunners to three shots on goal, two of which goalie Ryan Molina-Castillo (90 minutes in goal) saved.

Mt. SAC puts its three-game winning streak on the line against San Bernardino Valley (1-5-4) at home on Friday, Oct. 1, at 6 p.m. and begins South Coast Conference play at Los Angeles Harbor on Tuesday, Oct. 5.
