With only six minutes left in the soccer game ,Warriors’ sophomore team captain Kalyn Kaemerle scored her third goal of the day to complete the hat trick and help El Camino to a 4-0 win over Mt. San Jacinto on Tuesday at Murdock Stadium.

“Being the team captain and offensive player, it is my job to score and reward my team with goals,” Kaemerle said. “Chemistry plays a huge part in our ability to play as a team. We all get along and these girls are like sisters to me. This team has a lot of potential as a unit. I am excited to see how we do in conference.”

In just six games, she has a total of four goals. Three of those came against San Jacinto, which puts her as the Warrior leading scorer. Kaemerle said they had the capability to score more, but that would not be good sportsmanship to beat a team five or six to zero.

The Warriors are on a four game winning streak.

Sophomore mid fielder Sarina Ferlazzo ignited the Warriors’ offense by scoring the first point in minute 37 of the first half.

“We could have played better,” Ferlazzo said. “At first it felt like we were just kicking the ball around and not scoring the ball. I’m happy that Kalyn scored a hat trick because that gives us confidence so we can all score too.”

The game was fairly controlled by the home team. San Jacinto lost possession, play after play, and did not take advantage of the few chances they had.

Warriors’ head coach, John Britton, said the team’s overall performance keeps improving game after game.

“It’s only the beginning of the season, and I see these girls playing better everytime,” Britton said. “If we can play with the speed and determination like we did today we are going to have a great season. We just need to execute all the easy opportunities and not take them for granted.”

The Warriors nearly had double the shots on target compared to San Jacinto with a total of 13. Seven of them came in the first, and the other six in the second half of the game.

El Camino will play game seven of the season at home against Oxnard College on Friday. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
