Women’s soccer maintains perfect home record

The De Anza College women’s soccer team earned another win on home turf against the Monterey Peninsula College Lobos on Oct. 22, 4-0. 

The Dons have not slowed down their momentum. With no games left to lose, the team was determined to win the game, bringing them one step closer to the playoffs.

The Dons wasted no time once the game started with a shot on the goal by Jasmine Safar and a goal by Sydnee Lewis, bringing the score to 1-0 in the first 15 minutes of the game.  Although they had the lead, the team did not allow Lobos to make a comeback. 

The Dons stayed in charge of the ball and the direction of the game had already been decided. They made sure not to give any ground, points or ball control. The Lobos did get another shot on the goal, but De Anza’s goalie blocked it.

The game continued with some heavy pressure from the Lobos, but De Anza met them with a strong defense. Another opportunity opened up for the Dons with a drop-kick ball after a penalty against the other team. The ball was kicked by Annaliese Guraydin to  Marisa Carlotta who scored, bringing the score at halftime to 2-0.

The second half of the game, the Monterey Peninsula Lobos strategically kicked the ball out of bounds, giving De Anza no chance to score another goal. However, not even this strategy could keep the Dons from their strong offense. From the other side of the field, Abbey Nevoli rushed the ball to the opponent’s goal and kicked it in bringing the score to 3-0.

The next goal made was made by Athena Reclusado and Zobieda Pinto. Reclusado attempted to make a goal, but was blocked by the goalie; Pinto made another assist to Reclusado who headed the ball in to the goal bringing the score to 4-0.

The Dons never slowed down their momentum, and continued to make shots at the goals with consistent control of the ball. The game ended with Dons 4, Lobos 0.
