Women’s soccer team suffers game loss


The College of Sequoias women’s soccer team suffered their first unofficial loss to the San Joaquin Delta Mustangs. The final score was 4-0.

The Giants played aggressively throughout the game but fell short of the win.

On Sept. 5, the Visalia girls battled the Mustangs in one of their final unofficial games before kicking off their season opener. The Giants opened up the game with aggression and teamwork. Player  America Lopez tried getting the girls some breathing room on the field by taking the first shot of the game, but the Mustangs put up a good fight and prevented any goals.

The Giants were trailing by two goals in the first half, but players Gissel Mora and Jocelyn Arellano tried picking up the team’s energy by passing very well with one another. And the teamwork showed when minutes before the first half was over the Giants defense picked back up and Mya Rodriguez had two saves.

The second half of the game was more aggressive and physical. Both teams received yellow cards for pushing and shoving, but still the Giants were unable to score and keep the Mustangs from scoring another two goals.

The Giants fought till the end, passing well, weaving in and out through the Mustangs, trying to find any open opportunity to take a shot but the Mustangs defense was too overwhelming for the Giants.

“We had great effort. This team is definitely a very good quality team so seeing the caliber that they play at I think that we, although the score was 4-0 the goals were stoppable, we could’ve locked in but it’s okay we played well overall” Coach Brooke Morris said.

“I think that playing against this team because they are so strong prepares us for what we’re gonna see in the future. We’re going into conference next week and I think that this gives us kind of an advantage knowing this is what we might see in the playoffs potentially.”
