A tough Tie

Rubin Arias / Roundup

Bakersfield College held Pierce College’s Women’s soccer team to a 0-0 tie on Friday.

The Brahmas had plenty of scoring chances in the first half, but they could not put in the back of the net.

“We are frustrated and had our opportunities,” said Coach Adolfo Perez.

Pierce was dominating the offensive side with an 18-0 edge on shot on goal.

“We should have won 4-0 or 5-0 with these chances,” said Perez.

Pierce seemed a little off their game. Some of their passes were not on target at times.

Bakersfield was trying to be physical with Pierce and it worked.

“Physical teams give us trouble,” said Perez.

Bakersfield didn’t move the ball in the second half, while Pierce was squandering their opportunities.

There was a significant point in the half when the goalkeeper tripped Elizabeth Salgado.

The referee did not call a foul on the play for a penalty kick, which could have given Pierce a 1-0 victory.

“There is no excuse to be shut down by players less talented than us,” said Perez.

“We are better than this.”
