Mauricio Alegre scored two goals to help the Western Conference-leading San Diego Flash defeat the Zodiac, 4-0, in an A-League soccer game Saturday in front of about 3,000 at San Diego Mesa College.
The Zodiac beat the Flash in overtime, 2-1, Friday at Santa Ana Stadium, but Orange County's defense was not nearly as stingy Saturday.
Alegre scored his first goal in the 21st minute, then Chugger Adair scored on a header in the 42nd minute, deflecting a shot from Carlos Farias to give the Flash (20-8) a 2-0 lead. The Zodiac (16-11) managed only seven shots on goal and gave up 18.
Alegre scored his second goal in the 79th minute off an assist from Mugurel Dumitru. Dumitru finished the scoring with a goal off an assist from Jerome Watson in the 85th minute. It was the ninth goal of the season for Dumitru.
