The college’s women’s team came out on top in a game Sept. 23 against the second-ranked S.A. Nightmares at S.T.A.R. Soccer Complex.
The team participates in league play in the San Antonio Women’s Soccer Association’s First Division.
The women continually drove the ball down field, breaking their opponents’ defense only to be deflected by the Nightmares’ goalie.
In the first half, education sophomore Ana Quintero took a shot, but the Nightmares’ goalie deflected it.
Before fans could hang their heads, liberal arts sophomore Iliana Rodela regained possession and followed through to score the first goal of the game.
The score was tied 1-1 at the half.
The S.A. Nightmares continued to fight, but it wasn’t long before forward Quintero found a hole in the Nightmares’ defense and fought past the goalie to score a second goal for a 2-1 lead.
Pre-med freshman Jasmine Herrera pivoted past the Nightmares’ last defender to put the ball past the Nightmares’ goalie one more time to close out the game 3-1.
“We hope to have a stronger finish than last year,” Coach Roger Molina said. “We have a better and stronger team than last year’s.”
The women are currently in second place with a 1-1 record in the SAWSA First Division.
The team plays every Sunday at S.T.A.R. Soccer Complex, 5103 David Edwards Drive, adjacent to Morgan’s Wonderland.
