City College’s soccer team played the first game on the new turf directly following the Hughes dedication ceremony on Sept. 7, ending the game in defeat against De Anza with a 4-1 loss in their first game of the season.

“We were ready,” said Coach Jang-Ha Oh, “No chance to practice, it was the first time on the new field.”

“Soccer players love grass fields over synthetic,” said Oh.

Oh also explained how their cleats gripped the synthetic field differently. Oh said that the new field “absolutely,” affected the team’s performance.

“My team is better,” Oh said. “Much better than last year’s team.”
