Mustangs capture first league soccer game from Liberty Bell


Bridgeport players Santiago Moreno (30) Sergio Penaloza and Edward Martinez wait for the ball in last Saturday’s game against the Mountain Lions.

Sophomore defender Gustavo Garcia (20) seems to be wearing a soccer ball for a foot as he kicks the ball back into play against Liberty Bell.

Bridgeport took the early lead with scores that came close together in the first half of play.
