Brahmas and Condors get historic tie

The Brahmas and  the Oxnard Condors tied in Tuesday’s game with the final score being 2-2.

According to head coach Adolfo Perez, it was a frustrating game, in which it was the first time that the Brahmas and Oxnard College tie in 17 years.

“In their history they have never tied us or beat us,” Perez said.

Perez said that he didn’t think that Oxnard would ever tie against Pierce.

“Never in my wildest dreams, no,” Perez said.

According to Perez, the two goals that the team scored were great goals.

Team captain, Ashley Oviedo and Tylee Low scored the goals for the Brahmas.

Both of Oxnard’s goals were scored by Hilda Pena and Stephanie Salcido.

Gisell Cruz who scored the only goal in the game on Sept. 26 against Moorpark College, did not play in the game due to injury. She will be back on the field for Friday’s game.

In the first half, the game was stopped as Leslie Jolon, fell on the field which resulted in receiving medical attention on the sidelines. Jolon did not return  for the remainder of the game.

Shortly after Jolon was injured , the game stopped as Oxnard player, Michelle Pena, was looked over by medical staff.

According to Irene Reyes, the game had many turning points.

“When we scored and when we turned it on and got motivated,” Reyes said.

Reyes said that the team should have won.

“I think the other team, put up a good fight, but I also think we dominated,” Reyes said.

According to Reyes, her teammates goals were pure effort.

“They were there when we needed them and they really came through,” Reyes said.

Goalkeeper, Brianna Jacobo, made  four saves in the gamestopping preventing Oxnard from scoring on multiple occasions.

The team also came close to scoring on multiple occasions, but did not as the ball hit the post or their shots went wide.

Esmelda Guzman mentioned that it wasn’t their best performance.

“We started out slow and we were out the whole game and we ended up tying with bad goals from the other team,” Guzman said.

Guzman said that for the next game, her team can work better at communication and stepping up to the ball.

“Especially since it’s College of the Canyons,” Guzman said. “I’m a freshman and I’ve heard that COC is a good team, so I’m pretty sure that we are going to come into it with a good momentum.”

The next game will take place on Friday at 5:30 p.m. at College of the Canyons.
