Women’s soccer found their rhythm after a 3-0 win against San Diego City College on Friday.
After suffering two losses in the previous games, the team was finally able to get the much needed victory.
Head coach Reggie Rivas said that time was all they needed.
“We just needed more time playing together. Build that trust,” he said. “It was great. The girls played really hard all 90 minutes. I’m extremely proud of them.”
All three goals were scored on the first half. Beginning at the six-minute mark, midfielder/defender Juliana Gurule successfully passed the ball to forward Alexis Acosta, who buried it in the net.
The second goal was made in the 27th minute by Acosta and was assisted by midfielder Rachel Schroeder.
“We’re starting to get more comfortable with each other on the field,” Schroeder said. “We were just connecting the ball really well today.”
The third goal was scored by defender Kelly Youssef in the 31st minute.
“I had a great opportunity and I took it. I didn’t have to think much,” Youssef said. “It was just my natural instinct to take the shot.”
Another player who help secure the game was goalie Monica Rogers, who played 85 minutes and had three saves.
“I think we just communicated more on this game than the other two we had,” Rogers said. “That’s what helped us work better as a team.”
The win has made the team extremely happy and has given them a lot of confidence.
“I think bringing home this win gave us a lot of confidence to carry us on through the rest of the season,” Youssef said.
The team is looking to win more games and is getting ready for the next week game against Mt. San Jacinto.
“The girls are all on board and ready to continue to win soccer games,” coach Rivas said.
