Jimmy Coggan (class of '04) gets on the score sheet in Florida (9/20)
 
Former Valley Christian star Jimmy Coggan got the first point of his college career with a game winning assist Saturday 9/18 in Florida.  In the 74th minute vs. Tampa, Coggan played a cross to SPU teammate David Smith who played it off his chest for the goal.  The strike lifted the NCAA DII 24th ranked Falcons to a 2-1 victory, their third in a row (5-1-1).  Coggan, who led the Valley Christian Warriors to 40+ wins, and captained the best soccer team in school history ('03-'04), is used to winning.  Entering the season as Seattle Pacific's top recruit, Coggan has made the necessary adjustments to contribute. "College soccer is a different game, but I haven't really felt like I'm in over my head," Jimmy said.  Aleks Vranicic, Coggan's former coach while at VC commented, "This is just the beginning.  Jim will help lead that program back to their championship form, just like he did at VC, he's a top flight player."  Seattle Pacific's seven-game road trip resumes Tuesday in Miami when the Falcons visit No. 18 Barry.
 
APU update:
 
Sitting comfortably at 6-0-1, ranked #7 in the country, the Azusa Pacific Men's soccer team is ready for league to begin.  The team is off to a school record pace, and is drawing comparisons to the '96 team which is considered the best in school history.  Helping to anchor that team is VC's own Donny Dequine and Brandon Stirm.  Brandon added an assist to his scoresheet in the 4-0 defeat of NCAA side Cal State Pamona-Pitzer.  Stirms' 2 goals and 2 assists, and Dequine's goal have helped APU regain the form that saw them storm to a 24-2 record in '96.  The team has no seniors on it's roster, and is loaded heavily with Freshman and sophomores.  The Cougars are on a 12 day layoff while they prepare for a huge GSAC showdown with #2 ranked Fresno Pacific, who's roster is loaded with ex Fresno State (NCAA Div 1) players.  "It's a huge game for us, we're eager to show that we can take GSAC.  To do that, we need to get past Fresno Pacific," says Stirm.
 
An ankle sprain to VC alum Chris Hansen has slowed his progress, but the standout should only be shelved for 1-2 weeks.
