Brahmas cage the Condors

After losing a narrow game to the Hancock College Bulldogs, Pierce bounced back beating Oxnard on Tuesday.

A brace from Sofia Caparelli led the Brahmas to beat the Condors 5-0.

Head coach Adolfo Perez said he was excited for the win.

“We had a lot of ups-and-downs this year. We have injuries, a lot of things go wrong for us. Today was a Jewish holiday, so we had two kids that couldn’t play because of the holiday. We were really thin and this is probably our most complete game of the season,” Perez said.

  Caparelli said she was happy to be on the scoresheet.

“I always said that my right foot is my baby, so whenever I take a shot I know 100 percent of the time it’s going in,” Caparelli said.

Julianna Euyoque and Gabriela Portillo scored another two goals to take a 3-0 lead at halftime.

When play resumed, Pierce continued to mount the pressure on the Condors. Caprelli scored the fourth goal, while Diana Millan wrapped things up in the final minutes.

Halle Manalili had the opportunity to make it six from the spot, however her penalty kick was saved.

Manalili said she is looking forward to facing Santa Barbara City College.

 “I feel like we can beat them we just need to really play hard, focus, communicate and pass then it will be a successful game,” Manalili said.

Brahmas are on the road Friday, when they face Santa Barbara at 4 p.m.
