With five wins, one tie, and 13 losses, the El Camino’s women’s soccer team ended their season at home with a 4-0 win against Pasadena City College on Friday.

After a 20 game schedule, the Warriors have battled through a tough season, with an eight-game losing streak.

“It was a roller coaster,” forward, Nalleli Mendoza (No.11), said. “We had our ups and downs and a lot of injuries throughout this season that did affect us, but overall we all stuck together and ended the season with a win.”

The unfortunate injuries and upsets did not stop the Warriors as they faced off with the Pasadena Lancers.

During the first half, EC kept control of the ball keeping the ball mostly on Pasadena’s half as both teams communicated a lot.

“Step, step, step, go up,” EC’s goalkeeper, Joelle Niimi (No.14), said, as she kept motivating her teammates. “Nice try. There is two on your left.”

Pasadena’s defender, Alexxis Molinar (No.10), also motivated her teammates as she warned her teammates as EC carried the ball down the field.

“Don’t let her turn, don’t let her turn,” Molinar said.

However, within 20 minutes, EC scored their first goal, by Mendoza, making that her eight goal of the season.

In the 29th minute, EC’s midfielder, Jennifer Vargas (No.9), and Pasadena’s midfielder, Ashley Rivera (No.18), got red cards for starting a fight.

Rivera had started the fight as she swung while Vargas was off guard, however, no one was injured and the referees interfered seconds after it started.

EC forward, Robin Riggs (No.3), scored her ninth goal of the season.

The Warriors led, 2-0.

In the second half, EC kept the same momentum they did in the first half which led EC’s midfielder, Isabel Alba (No.12), to score the third goal of the game in the 48th minute.

It didn’t take much longer for Mendoza to score her ninth goal of the season with a penalty kick in the 53rd minute.
