The Pierce women’s soccer team was shut out 1-0 against Santa Monica College Saturday in the first round of the Western Southern Conference playoffs. The Brahmas entered the game having won their last three games and finished with a 15-4-3 record. Pierce had not allowed a goal in the last three games, including the last game of the year against the Santa Monica Corsairs.
Pierce College defeated Santa Monica College to win the Western State Conference Women’s Soccer championship. The Brahmas have won four of the last five conference championships, losing only in 2004. “This is the most satisfying and difficult,” said Head Coach Adolfo Perez.
The Pierce College Women’s soccer team played frustrated in a 1-0 loss at Valley College Friday. The Brahmas came out of the gates shooting, with two shots on goal in the first two minutes of the first half. Most of the first half was played in the midfield as Valley kept the Brahmas from getting into the offensive zone.
