Austin Keeling scores two in victory. 11/26

A day after a torrential downpour postponed the matchup, Valley Christian beat Homestead High School on the strength of a Austin Keeling double.

On a brisk sunny day, the Warriors took it to Homestead from the opening whistle. In the first half, Jeff Coggan took a ball from Nathan Goldsmith off his chest and slotted it home to put the Warriors up 1-0 going into the break.

The second half got off to a good start when Peter Osuna finished off a Goldsmith cross, 2-0 Warriors.

The Warriors made it 3-0 when Austin scored his first goal of the season.  Coggan took the ball past a few Homestead players and fired on goal.  The 'keeper made a save, but Keeling was there to put home the rebound.

At the end of regulation, Keeling added the exclamation point.  After beating a couple of defenders with the dribble, Keeling passed the ball to Jeff Coggan who's one time shot was saved.  Once again, Austin was there to clean up the rebound and put the Warriors ahead 4-0.

After the game, head coach Aleks Vranicic commented on the Warriors first win of the season.  "We have a lot to work on, but I thought we showed well today.  We have another game tomorrow which will be tough.  Overall a good performance today."

The Warriors get an early Christmas present on Saturday ahead of the game against Woodside.  Ben Hansen and Joey Stryker will join the team after winning the CCS Open Division in Football.
