The ECC women’s soccer team has officially started its turnaround. After three initial losses, the Warriors got their first win of the season on Wednesday, Sept. 12, against the San Diego Miramar Jets, on home turf.

ECC’s Nalleli Mendoza struck first at the 14th minute, when she pounced on an errant back pass from a Jets defender. This was Mendoza’s fourth goal of the season.
