TEMECULA — Despite being held scoreless for the first 25 minutes of their divisional championship match, the Arsenal Gunners of Alta Loma bested the Dynamo of El Centro U-13 select soccer team 6-0 during the second annual SouthWest Soccer Classic at the Corona Ranch Sod Farm here Monday.
Dynamo, which had surrendered just one goal in three pool play matches and had shut out the Leucatia Lightening 2-0 in the semifinals Sunday, kept the Gunners muzzled before failing to mark an Arsenal player at the edge of the penalty box who scored to make it 1-0.
"We had them at their frustration point because they had not gone that long in any of their previous tournament matches without scoring," said Dynamo coach Jim Graham.
"However, just when we were thinking about what we would do in the second half, we give up a goal."
Arsenal, which averaged 8.5 goals per victory in its four previous tournament matches, extended its lead to 2-0 at the half when the team scored in the 32nd minute.
