MOST COMMENTED




Yavapai completed its first perfect season when it beat San Jacinto, 1-0, and won its seventh NJCAA Division I men's tournament.

Dirk Petersen
scored on a header off a free kick in the 13th minute.

Petersen is one of 10 Roughrider sophomores who finished with back-to-back national titles. They won 26 straight games in 2008 and 33 games in a row over two seasons.

The win over San Jacinto avenged one of the two losses in 2007.

Francis Khamis and Justin Meram finished 1-2 in career goals with 53 goals and 51 goals, respectively. Meram and Khamis are 1-2 in career points with 132 and 125, respectively. Both marks break the records of Edson Rico set in 1989-90.
