The Irvine Valley men's soccer team ended the pre-conference part of its schedule on a high note.
The Lasers won, 4-0, at Glendale Tuesday in a match under the lights.
Irvine Valley scored three of those goals in the first half.
Freshman defender Brian Bennett scored his first goal of the year and gave Irvine Valley a 1-0 lead early in the contest. He took a throw in from freshman midfielder Robert Hernandez and finished.
Sophomore defender Francisco Hernandez then scored back-to-back goals to cap a well-played first half for IVC.
Hernandez took the ball up the field, played it to sophomore midfielder Nick Black and then continued his run. Black found Hernandez open and he scored on a long-range shot.
Hernandez then scored on a free kick for the Lasers to make it a 3-0 game.
Irvine Valley finished its scoring in the second half when freshman forward and goal-leader Fredy Razo put away a penalty kick. It was Razo's seventh goal of the year.
Sophomores Daniel Hernandez and Kurt Bond each played a half in goal to earn the shutout.
"The boys played hard and really well at times," IVC Coach Martin McGrogan said. "It was a good win against a pretty physical team."
The result improved the team's record to a solid 4-1-1 on the season. The four victories already matches the win total from the 2009 season (4-12-4).
Irvine Valley now doesn't play again until Sept. 28 when it opens Orange Empire Conference play with a match at Cypress at 1 p.m.
