(Torrance, CA) For the second time in 10 days, Mt. SAC (14-2-5, 7-0-2) and Rio Hondo (15-1-2, 9-0-1) played to a 0-0 tie, this time in the South Coast Conference Tournament championship game at El Camino College on Friday. The first time was on Nov. 2 to settle the SCC North title, which went to the Roadrunners. This time, however, the Mounties captured the tournament championship on a penalty-kick shootout, 4-2.

As the No. 3 seed, Mt. SAC held opponents scoreless in three tournament games, which included wins over No. 6 Compton, 5-0, and No. 2 El Camino, 2-0, and the deciding game against Rio Hondo. In that stretch, goalie Leila Peregrina had 12 saves, including four in the championship game.

The Mounties are ranked No. 10 in the state and are riding a 16-game unbeaten streak and now await the pairing announcements for the California Community College Athletic Association Regionals, which start on Saturday, Nov. 20.
