Women’s soccer team beats Valley in heated game

Despite the extreme heat, the Pierce College women’s soccer team played a shutout against Los Angeles Valley College to win 2-0 on Tuesday, Sept. 16 in The Pit at Pierce College.

Head coach Adolfo Perez said that it was a tough game and Pierce had to play harder than they should have.

There were a few close calls but keeper Jenna Koziol made some great saves to keep Valley scoreless.

“I’m glad we won but we could have played better,” Pierce defense Desiree Raygoza said. “It was not one of our best games, but we still got the win which is important.”

Leading goal-scorer Forward Paige Wolny scored both of the goals for the Brahmas. The two goals mark Wolny’s sixth and seventh goals of the season to continue her six-game scoring streak.

Around the 21st minute of the game, there was a physical altercation between Pierce defender Stephanie Alcazar and Valley midfielder Regan Laser. Both were immediately ejected from the game.

“I’m not big on criticizing referees but there are other things within the game that need to be taken care of a little bit more,” keeper coach Juan Plascencia said.

With the temperature reaching over 104 degrees, officials requested water breaks to be taken halfway through the first half and every 15 minutes during the second.

The next game for the Lady Brahmas will be Friday, Sept. 19 against the Cosumnes River Hawks at 4 p.m. at John Shepard stadium.
