TORRANCE, Calif. --- One game after erupting on offense, El Camino College raised the stakes with a dominating 11-1 non-conference victory over visiting Cypress on Tuesday afternoon at the ECC Soccer Field.
The Warriors scored double-digit goals for the first time in recent recorded history (since 2012) along with their largest margin of victory (10).
