Soccer wins season opener

Goals from Jennifer Veliz, Tylee Low and Adriana Sosa gave the Brahmas the win over San Diego Miramar College 3-0 in the season opener.

The match was delayed because the Jets arrived to The Pit 26 minutes before kickoff due to traffic. The game was originally supposed to start at 4 p.m., but it began at 4:20 p.m.

Veliz, before scoring her goal, executed a free kick which hit the crossbar.

“I felt I did pretty well for not having done anything in the past two months,” Veliz said. “I was happy about my goal, but I wasn’t pleased that the other two didn’t go in.”

Veliz said she adapted quickly and her teammates were welcoming from the start.

“I think I adapted pretty well. The girls are super nice and it was easy to get along with them,” Veliz said.

Head coach Adolfo Perez recognized that his team became tired during the match, and he acknowledged that Miramar is a great team.

“We got a little tired, which is normal,” Perez said. “We’ve never beaten them this bad. Last year, was the first time we played them and we won 1-0. Now today we beat them 3-0.”

Perez spoke about Veliz’s performance and the multiple opportunities she had to score in the game.

“You know the irony, she had two great shots that didn’t go in and then the one that was soft went in and that’s how it is. The beauty of it,” Perez said.

Perez said that his team looked great on the field, but he also recognized that they looked sloppy at times, probably due to the weather and field conditions.

Team captain Ashley Oviedo said that she was nervous at first about being a team captain, but she thinks the match went well.

“I felt that the game went a lot better than expected. We need to clean up just a few little things and we should be fine,” Oviedo said. “I was definitely nervous at first. It’s hard to be open and speak in front of a big group, but being captain of this team since we are close it will help me improve on my leadership skills.”
