Missed opportunities cost College of the Redwoods men’s soccer over the weekend, as the Corsairs lost and tied on a two-game road trip.
On Friday afternoon, the CR men fell 4-0 at Contra Costa (1-3-1), giving up three goals in a 10-minute spell in the first half.
According to head coach Kyle Van Dyke, the Corsairs played well in the second half, with a lot of possession, but were unable to take their chances.
The same problems continued to plague the CR men on Saturday, in a 1-1 tie at Merritt.
Eric Olea got the team’s only goal off an assist from Roberto Ortiz.
Once again, the Corsairs (0-2-2) had plenty of opportunities to score and take the win, but were unable to capitalize.
The Corsairs return home to host Mendocino (1-0-1) in their home opener on Tuesday in a doubleheader with the women’s teams.
The CR women kick off at 2 p.m., followed by the men at 4 p.m.
