Women’s soccer dominates Compton College with a shutout

The Warriors’ women’s soccer team finished game eight of the season with a 4-0 win at EC-Compton Center on Tuesday, according to cccaasports.org.

In the first half, the score stayed 0-0 after 45 minutes.

Five minutes into the second half, freshman defender Stephanie Torres gave El Camino a 1-0 lead over the Tartars with an unassisted goal from a corner kick.

At the 52 minute mark, freshman defender Emily Cano creates a play to help assist freshman midfielder Sarina Ferlazzo with her second goal of the season.

Freshman Kalyn Kaemerle adds another goal with an assist from sophomore midfielder Rocio Najero at the 54 minute mark to give the Warriors a 3-0 lead over Compton.

The Tartars’ offense was not able to execute. In the entire 90 minutes, they only had one shot on target.

On the other hand, the Warriors’ offense played a solid game with 17 attempts on goal.

“Easily, the score should have been 8-0,” coach John Britton said.

With having won only one game this season prior to the victory against Compton, this 4-0 win brings hopes to a struggling Warriors offense.

“This win means a lot to everyone because it was our first conference game and we won,” sophomore midfielder Tonya Gonzalez said. “Also, it raised our confidence and expectations. Now we feel like we are playing as a team offensively.”

At the 83 minute mark, sophomore defender Rylie Cole created her own goal and sealed the game for EC with a 4-0 win.

“Can we score on every possession? The opportunity is there, we just can’t execute like we want to,” Britton said. “This win will increase our momentum going into Friday’s game against Pasadena.”

With only nine goals out of eight games this season, the offense is the only challenge the Warriors have. Its season record stands at 2-4-2.

“Our defense is really good,” sophomore defender Ashley Mercado. “We need to take more risks offensively and shoot from far. We need to focus on winning and learn from our losses. This is a young team, we have a lot to learn.”

The Warriors’ next game is at home against Pasadena College on Friday, Oct. 2 at 4 p.m.
