Soccer dominates for 11th win of the season

The Pierce College women’s soccer team continued their offensive display of power against Glendale City College at home on Tuesday.

The score at the end of the 90 minutes was 5-0 in favor of the Brahmas who have scored a total of 12 goals in their last two matches.

Much like their game against Valley College on Friday, Pierce was in charge throughout the game.

They forced the Vaqueros to commit several turnovers during the game and did not let up on their defensive pressure.

“We defended from the top,” said assistant coach Jose Mejia “[the new formation] Forces us to defend.”

The Brahmas first goal was scored within the opening minutes of the first half.

The goal was scored by sophomore midfielder Sophie Forrester and was set up from a cross into the box by midfielder Jessica Gonzalez, who had two assists in the game.

Defender Emily Streb, who has three goals in the last two games, scored the second goal off of a corner kick just before the ten minute mark of the first half.

Right when Glendale College was starting to get a feel on the ball, Pierce’s freshman Robinette Ramirez scored their third goal of the half with an outstanding finesse shot from the top of the penalty box.

The score at this point was 3-0 and the Brahmas were in absolute control of the game and only allowed the Vaqueros a couple of opportunities, which they failed to capitalize on.

Much like the first part of the match Pierce came out strong and scored in the opening minutes.

Forward Arely Blanco did not give up on a goalie’s rebound that came from a shot from outside the box.

The final goal of the game was scored by freshman forward Edith Dominguez who dribbled into the box and tucked it away from the goalie’s reach for her sixth goal of the season.

“We just played well together,” said sophomore defender Jennifer Venegas. “We got everything we needed to get done.”

In the last two games Pierce showcased how dangerous they can be off of set pieces, primarily corner kicks.

Head coach Adolfo Perez believes that Pierce’s 12 goals in the last two games is a statement to the other teams in their conference

“When you play good,” said Perez. “It doesn’t matter where you play.”

Pierce soccer will travel to Bakersfield to play the Renegades on Tuesday, Nov 1st with kick off scheduled at 4 p.m.
