SANTANA 3, STEELE CANYON 0

The Santana Sultans improve their mark to 7-2-1 thanks to a pair of goals by Nathan Hughes as they hounded the Cougars all night long.

Right away the Sultans made their mark as Omar Nuristani was able to blast one in for the first goal of the night less than a minute into the contest thanks to a well-played ball positioned by Sam Odenkirk.

They would strike again as Hughes with less than 10 minutes in the first half would find the back of the net to give the Sultans a 2-0 lead.

Hughes would strike again in the second half on a 35-yard free kick to extend the lead and the defense led by Austen Hanson would do the rest as they shut out the Cougars and allowing only two shots on the night.

Garnering the victory in goal for the Sultans was Carlos Juarez.

Santana will hit the road next to take on the El Cajon Valley Braves on Friday night December 21st at 6:30 PM.
