The soccer season is over.

Both the De Anza College men’s and women’s teams fell in the Northern California regional last week to end their seasons.

For the women, it was a particular letdown. They were the second-seeded team in the Northern California regional playoffs. They were expected to make the regional final.

Instead, they lost 1-0 to seventh-seeded American River in the second round.

It was the first time all season that the De Anza women were shut out. They averaged nearly three goals per game in the regular season.

The De Anza men were expected to face a defensive struggle in their first-round matchup against Contra Costa. The two teams conceded less than one goal per game during the regular season, a feat accomplished by only seven other teams in the state.

The game lived up to expectations. De Anza lost 1-0 in a tight contest with few chances on goal.

The women finished the season with a record of 18- 3-4. The men were 13-5-5.
