Dons women’s soccer falls 3-0 to Evergreen, injuries blamed

On Oct. 24, De Anza College’s women’s soccer team faced off against the Evergreen Valley Hawks in a hard-fought soccer match that ended in a 3-0 loss for De Anza.

In the first half, the Dons put on defensive stops to prevent Evergreen from scoring on multiple attempts.

The second half proved to be especially difficult for the Dons, as they battled fatigue and the hot sun to rally against the Hawks in attempt to put up numbers on the board.

“We have half of our team injured,” said Morgan Becker, captain of the team. “We had to put out two substitute players in order to make up for our numbers. Our main goalie is also out, so we had field players out there playing goalie. I think if we had our whole squad, including our goalie, we would’ve had a better chance against our opponent.”

This loss drops the Dons’ overall record to 3-10 this season and 0-5 in the conference.
