Chargers unable to overcome Rustlers

Cypress, CA -  Golden West has a 9-1 (6-0 in conference) record for a good reason, it is a fast and disciplined team. The Chargers (5-5-3, 2-4) struggled all afternoon in breaking through the Rustlers' defense before they lost 2-0. The Chargers are still looking for a solution in replacing the missing holes due to injuries.  GWC's defense covered the Chargers offensive weapons Milan Engholm and Pedro Sanchez well, unable them to get through the middle.

Brandon Luna (Servite) was added to the roster last week and started in the second half and made a good contribution.\
