Oxnard College Men's Soccer Wins California State Championship
Title marks college's second state championship in seven years
The match was initially delayed by a rainstorm, and mud and wet grass plagued both teams throughout the game. Twenty-two minutes into the match, Oxnard player Odin Rosten scored a 22-yard goal to put the Condors up 1-0. Mt. SAC later responded by tying the game with a penalty kick in the 45th minute after Oxnard's Edwin Hernandez was carded for a foul.
With only 4 minutes left in the game, Rosten split through 2 defenders to kick a shot past Mt. SAC's goalkeeper for what would become Oxnard's winning goal. Rosten, who scored both goals, was named the game's "Most Valuable Player of the Final Four."
"It's been an incredible season and the entire Oxnard community can be extremely proud of their boys," shared Ross Greaney, Oxnard College's head men's soccer coach. "While it's easy to see this team's talent on the field, what you don't always see is their dedication to the team, their diligence to earn good grades, and their resolve to represent our community in the best way. We are extremely fortunate to live in a community where young people blossom like these men."
The title marked the end of an impressive 2022 season for Oxnard College. After an undefeated 10-0 record in conference, the Condors secured their third consecutive Western State Conference (WSC) North Championship Title. The team won 17 games in a row following their only season loss to Mt. SAC in September. During the playoffs, the Condors notched three shutout games and scored a total of 14 goals while giving up only two. They finished the season with an overall record of 22-1-1.
"Soccer runs deep here at Oxnard College, where we have a long tradition of excellence,"
Oxnard College, Director of Outreach and Marketing
